|Orientation Letter to Parents
Dear Parents, August 27, 2013
WELCOME to the 2013-2014 school year!!! Here is some information regarding our First Grade classroom, which I hope you will find useful.
BIRTHDAYS: If you would like your child to celebrate his/her birthday with the class please let me know a few days in advance. At this time, there are 24 children in our First Grade classroom.
NUTRITIOUS SNACKS: Beginning the first day of school the children may bring a “nutritious” snack to be eaten mid-morning at snack time. Suggestions include: fruit, vegetables, cheese & crackers, etc.
SCHOLASTIC NEWS: Please support your child’s Reading, Social Studies, and Science skills by sending in $25.00 to cover the cost of this periodical and special projects. (Send Cash or check payable to ‘cash’)
HOMEWORK: Homework will be assigned on Fridays and need to be completed and returned the following Friday. This homework will go home in a folder marked homework. This routine will begin on Friday, September 18th. However, if your child does not finish an assignment in class, they may be asked to take it home to be finished and returned the next day. This is in addition to the Homework folder.
BOOK ORDER: Once a month, a book order will be sent home with each child. Please return the order form in an envelope with your child’s name on it. You may pay with cash or check made out to ‘Cash’ or ‘Scholastic’.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation. I look forward to an exciting year of teaching and a great year of learning. I am very interested in making this a successful and happy year for you and your child. Please keep the lines of communication open. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at school or at (586)944-3813.
