• Birthdays

    Any child celebrating a birthday will receive a bookmark, sticker, and pencil from me. Please contact me in advance if you wish to send a treat for the whole class. Please send either non-food treats (pencils, stickers, etc) or an easy-to-eat STORE BOUGHT snack that students can enjoy while working, like cookies or cupcakes. Please send napkins if you are providing food. Any food items will be served at the end of the day. Summer birthdays will be celebrated in May.

    Parent Center

    Parent Center is aimed at keeping you informed and involved in the everyday activities of your student. Our goal is to make life easier for you by bringing information together into one location in a user-friendly format.

    Features included are a dashboard (offering campus and general student information), student attendance, student grades and assignments, student library books, triggers and account management among others.

    Step 1 - Go to Parent Center
    Go to Parent Center Registration Form.
    (This form can also be found using the "Register for a new parent account" link underneath the "Process Login" button on the Parent Center Login screen.)

    Step 2 - Fill out Form
    Fill out the form and click the "Register" button at the bottom of the form.

    Step 3 - Confirm your Email
    You will receive an email with a link to confirm your email address. Use the link in the email to be taken to Parent Center where a welcome screen congratulates you on your successful registration.

    Step 4 - Add Student(s)
    After logging in, enter the necessary information in the "Add Student" section to request access to your student(s).

    Please Note: If you do not confirm your account within 15 days, or do not add students to your account within 30 days of confirmation, your account will be DELETED.

     

    Seesaw

    Seesaw is a free app that allows you to connect to what is happening in the classroom. I can share photos, videos, and student work in a "feed" that is private to our class. Each family will receive a unique log-in for their child. Permission slips for Seesaw will be sent home in late August, along with more information.

     

    Snacks

    Your child may bring a snack and a water bottle to school each day. I do not have a set "snack time" -- instead, I allow students to eat their snack while they are working at any point during the day. Please make sure your child brings snacks that are nourishing and easy-to-eat, like cut fruit, veggie sticks, goldfish, or animal crackers. 

     

    Social Contract 

    The class will work together to create a social contract based on four guiding questions:

    1. How would you like to be treated by the teacher?

    2. How do you think the teacher wants to be treated by you?

    3. How will you treat each other?

    4. What should we do when there is conflict?

    The expectations we write down will be signed by each person in class. We will then help each other follow those expectations throughout the year.
