Classroom Goals & Expectations...
1. To highlight my student's talents and interests within the curriculum, recognizing that each child is a unique gift of God.
2. To create a safe and nurturing learning environment that fosters the development of the whole child- spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. Through this, I aim to guide each and every child to reach their fullest potential on a daily basis and develop a lifelong love of learning.
3. To establish collabortive relationships with parents/guardians. I believe both teachers and parents/guardians play an important part in the overall development and successes of a child.
Attending school every day is vital to a child's education. If your child is absent, please send a note in the day they return (one that is signed and dated). If I do not receive a note on the day that they return to school, your child's absence will be considered an illegal absence. Any work that is missed during school will be placed in your child's homework folder to be completed and returned in a timely manner.
Every child will receive a homework folder that should be brought back and forth to school every day, even if it is empty. One side will be labeled "Return to School" and the other side "Keep at Home." Papers that are placed in the "Keep at Home" section are to be reviewed by parents/guardians and kept at home. Papers that are placed in the "Return to School" section are to be reviewed, signed if needed, and placed back in the "Return to School" section. Aside from e-mail, keep in mind that this folder is also used as a form of communication on a daily basis. Please strive to check your child's folder every day for notes and papers to stay updated with information and their progress.
