I believe in the quote, “There is always, always something to be thankful for”.  Before I turned out the lights in my classroom after the Open House last night, I noticed the grocery bags filled with Kleenex and disinfecting wipes,  the desks filled with supplies, the bus numbers and parent emails were all unchanged, (which I hope means they were all correct!), the parties were filled with parent volunteers and I have a helper for Fridays. THANK YOU! I am grateful for you and for the support you showed me last night. It’s going to be a great year!  I look forward to welcoming the children to school on Tuesday morning!  Please help your child remember to bring:

  1. a water bottle
  2. a mid-morning snack -please view snack time as another opportunity to provide good nutrients to promote learning vs. having a sweet treat. The best choices would be fruit, cheese sticks, vegetables, yogurt.

Also, your child will most likely be exhausted the first week. It will be beneficial to start the earlier bed routine now, so your child has time to adjust.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send me an email at:

Have a great weekend!
