Please feel free to email me if you have any questions. The success of our classroom comes from open communication and modeling the skills we want students to embrace. I believe it will be a great year and I look forward to working with each of you!
Parents you will receive the following material for your student to keep at home: math vocabulary cards, science refrigerator cards, Virginia studies refrigerator cards, read and write gold access and reading logs which will be due every Friday.

Please keep these study materials where your child will have access daily to help in their homework. They will be required to learn this information throughout the year.
