"The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future." - Theodore Roosevelt
I expect . . . . .
Each child to come to class with a smile, prepared with supplies and ready to learn.
Proper behavior in class so that each child can learn to their fullest potential.
Your child to ask questions! So . . .
Be a team player
Be the best you can be
An attached supply list is available on the link to the right. Your child will need 2 composition notebooks for my class. Please keep in mind that as the year progresses some supplies may need to be replenished. Check with your child often to see that they have notebook paper, pencils, erasers, a pencil sharpener, folders, crayons, scissors, and glue or glue sticks and a composition book.

If your child is in need of tutorials, they will be offered during the school day. Periodically, after school tutorials will be offered for children that need remediation of a certain skill or concept.
