I would like to tell all of you how happy I am to have your child in my class this year. We will be doing many exciting things this year. I look forward to working with you as parents to make this a great year.
Now, let me explain a few of my class policies and information.
I will send homework home on Mondays. This will be for the entire week. There will be a sheet attached that tells what day each assignment is to be turned in. I do it this way so that your child has the chance to complete it all if you know there is a certain day or days that will be busy that week.
We will be continuing with our RTI2 program this year at MES that focuses on rewarding positive behavior of our students. It will be based on a point system. The students will be able to earn points during the day based on their positive behaviors. The students will have many different opportunities to “spend” their points during each nine weeks for certain rewards. I will also continue to have a classroom discipline policy as well. I will be discussing our school and classroom rules with the students. They will know what is expected of them. Our discipline policy is as such; 1st rule broken-warning; 2nd rule broken- miss 5 min. of playtime; 3rd rule broken- miss 15 min. of playtime; 4th rule broken- miss all playtime; 5th rule broken- office referral.
If you ever have any questions, suggestions, or concerns about anything, please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can do so by; sending a note in your child’s folder, email- firstname.lastname@example.org,or calling the school (376-0160).
I’m looking forward to a great year with your child!
Mrs. Tina Albanez
I am happy to be your child’s teacher. I am Annette McBryde. I am married and have two children and a daughter-in-law. I received my bachelor’s degree from Blue Mountain College and my master’s degree from the University of MS. I was a teacher assistant for four years and I have been teaching for 27 years.
Homework assignments will be written in the planner on Monday. Written assignments are due on Fridays. Students will have a daily reading assignment.
We will continue with our RTI2 program this year. This program focuses on rewarding positive student behavior with points. These points will be redeemed for rewards throughout the year.
My classroom rules are:
BE RESPECTFUL FOLLOW DIRECTIONS LISTEN CAREFULLY
I use the turn a card system:
GREEN: a good day! YELLOW: a warning BLUE: 5 minute loss of play time ORANGE: 10 minute loss of play time
PINK: loss of entire play time and parent contact (or the student will be written up)
I am looking forward to having your child in my class. I know we will have an exciting year. It is important that we work together as a team. If you have questions, suggestions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. email@example.com
My name is Mrs. Paige and I will be your teacher this year! I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree from Western Governor’s University in December of 2018. I began teaching 1st grade at MES in January of 2019. Although I am a new teacher, I have a lot of passion and love for each one of my students and I am devoted to making sure each one of you get the attention, help, and guidance you need to help you succeed this year!
I CAN’T WAIT TO START WORKING WITH YOU!!
I will send homework for the week home for the week every Monday, along with their list of Spelling words and the fluency passage that should be read over every night. Homework should be signed by the parent or guardian and turned in to me first thing Friday morning. Spelling and oral fluency will be tested every Friday, so please take the time to study with your child throughout the week to help them ace these tests!
I will be utilizing communication through your child’s planner every day so please make sure it is checked and initialized and by you every night. Your child will receive a DOJO point for returning it the next day initialed. I will also send out messages to you about upcoming activities or behavior through Remind.
