Classroom Notes

Parents please scroll down to view weekly events and spelling words.


Dear Parents,
I would like to take this opportunity to express my interest and enthusiasm in teaching your child this year.  I am looking forward to helping your child grow and learn through many developmental  approaches.  With this type of  teaching style (learning by seeing, hearing, doing and moving) there is less emphasis on book work and seat work type
activities.  However, we will do these types of lessons but, they will not make up the entire portion of my curriculum.  Your child will learn at  their own rate and pace, and I will do my best to stimulate your child’s growth in every academic area.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, I can be reached at school from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. most days.  You may also contact me by phone or school email. This information is found below at the bottom of the page.  Please feel free to stop into room 105 anytime.  Just remember to sign in at the office and get a visitor’s pass.
