I am so excited to meet you! I look forward to learning all about you, your summer adventures, your family and friends, your goals and dreams for this school year, and any other special things about yourself that you want to share. Many of you might be nervous-don’t worry, you are not alone! I get nervous each year too! My trick is to focus on all the fun we are going to have together. I want you to know how lucky I feel to be your teacher this year and I know we will have so much fun learning and growing together!
So that you have an idea about our days to come, I have listed your special schedule below:
Day 1- Music 9:45-10:30
Day 2- Media 9:45-10:30
Day 3- Art 9:45-10:30
Day 4- Physical Education 8:55-9:40
Day 5- Physical Education 9:45-10:30
Day 6- Media 8:55-9:40
You will also have a snack (peanut and tree nut free please)/recess every day from 10:30-10:45 and lunch from 12:20-1:00.
For the first day of school when you bring your labeled supplies, I have also enclosed a white paper bag that has a very special purpose. First, I would like you to write your name on the bag and decorate it in a way that makes you, you! Next, I would like you to place 3 things that are most special to you in the bag so that you can share and explain them to your classmates and me. The only rules are that the objects must fit in the bag and be school friendly. That could include pictures, souvenirs, personal gifts, a childhood toy, or your favorite baseball hat. I can’t wait to learn all about you and share some things about myself!
As you get ready for school, I want you to remember a few things: we are all nervous, we will all meet great friends and have exciting events to come, and you have a teacher who is looking forward to meeting you and very lucky to have you in her class!
