Welcome Back Everyone

August 29, 2013

It was great to see the smiling faces of all our students on Monday. I worked in the building most of the summer and I can tell you it is a quiet lonely place without the children. I know it is difficult to get back into the routine of school the first week. Getting children (and teachers) to bed earlier than summer vacation helps. Children often have to transition to a more structured day than the carefree days of summer. We will do everything we can to help them transition to the school day. 

082930 1Our school follows the principles of the Responsive Classroom. Responsive Classroom supports spending the necessary time at the beginning of the year to establish basic procedures and the time to get to know each other. They are writing hopes and dreams for the year and the class will generate class rules/expectations.

My hope and dream is that every student views learning as joyful and fun and that they work hard to reach their individual potential. My greeting to the students especially in the higher grades is, "Good morning scholars!" I want our students to see themselves as scholars with the ability to learn new skills and information.

Please know that your child's teacher is your first line of communication if you have concerns and my door is always open. Here's to a great year!
