Dear Parents:

I am happy to welcome you to the 2017- 2018 School Year!

I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure your children can achieve their highest potential. I recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. I know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As a partner, I share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that I will do my very best to carry out my responsibilities. 

I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2) Completes all homework assignments given.

3) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.

4) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject.

 I am attaching a copy of my classl rules so that you and your child can review them together. If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year.

If your child should not follow the rules I will notify you immediately.

I thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.
