Happy New Year! (School Year At Least)

Happy New School Year Everyone!

Just a couple of updates to get us started:

Open House will take place on Thursday September 17th from 6-7pm for classroom teachers and 6:30-7:30 for enrichment teachers.  The middle school open house will allow you to follow your child's normal Friday schedule to see how they transition classes and give you a chance to see each teacher.  We will discuss general classroom protocols with the homeroom teacher and content specific protocols with the teacher of that subject area.  The general schedule for Room 317 will be:

  • 6:00-6:10 Science in Room 317 with Ms. Lewin
  • 6:10-6:20 Social Studies in Room 216 with Ms. Smith
  • 6:20-6:40 Language Arts in Room 213 with Ms. Foreman
  • 6:40-7:00 Math in Room 312 with Ms. Schultz
  • 7:00-7:30 Enrichment Visits with various teachers (optional)

Welcome Packets went home last week on Tuesday, September 8th.  This year, families received one packet per family instead of multiple repeats of paperwork.  Please make sure to return the Emergency Forms, Income Forms, and Medical Forms.  Note that the income form is required to be returned, but you do not have to list your income.  You can fill in "N/A" on the form if you are concerned about privacy issues.  The forms are essential to our state funding.  Also, classrooms that have 100% of their Income Forms returned will receive a popsicle party!
