This will be an exciting and challenging year for your child. In order to make this year as successful and rewarding as possible, I would like to share some information with you.
First, I believe communication between parent and teacher is a crucial part of a child’s education. This year, you can expect to receive a newsletter from me at the beginning of each month. This newsletter, “203 News,” will keep you updated on events happening in our classroom, including topics we are studying, projects we are working on, special events coming up, and other information I think you need to know or that might interest you.
This envelope also contains information about the Remind app. I use this app to communicate quick notes to you pretty regularly so I highly encourage you to download it if you have a Smart Phone. Messages from me include things to ask your child about that day, reminders of upcoming events, pictures of example work, and more! The Remind app also allows you to contact me with questions at any time of the day!
If you don’t have a Smart Phone, don’t worry! You can still receive my Remind announcements through text or email, and if you want to contact me, you can still call or email me.
If you are interested in volunteering weekly in our classroom, let me know and we can set that up. I am looking for volunteers to work with small groups during our word work stations, individual students during math, and to prepare classroom materials and Monday folders.
Don’t forget to check out the rest of this envelope’s contents for important information about homework, our class website, and much more. I look forward to getting to know you and your child this year!
