Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year! I am happy to be your child’s teacher and having them become part of our Kindergarten family. This year, your child will not only have the opportunity to grow academically, but also experience social growth.
With the implementation of California Common Core Standards, Kindergarten students will be expected to explain their thinking processes through the work they produce, but most importantly, through verbal communication. I encourage you to please ask your child questions and have them respond in complete sentences. Practicing speaking skills at home is very important, in any language.
I also encourage you to communicate any questions or concerns you may have for me. Sometimes it is a little challenging to answer all of your questions at the time of dismissal. My priority is to make sure every child is released to the appropriate adult. So if you don’t get a chance to talk to me, please feel free to email me at any time. My school email is firstname.lastname@example.org. The office will also receive messages, but calls cannot be transferred during school hours.
Thank you for all of your support in your child’s education. I look forward to meeting all of the Room 1 families.
