Welcome to Room 208 -- Alexandra Richardson -- 5th and 6th Grade

My name is Alexandra Richardson and I am pleased to be your 5th and 6th grade teacher!  This will be my second year teaching at Barton Open and I am very excited to work with you.  We are going to have a fantastic school year filled with learning, growing and new adventures.

Good afternoon 208 families,

Updates/reminders:
-Lately kids have bringing in soda pop bottles and water bottles. The water is okay, but bottles cannot be out on tables. There have been many incidents of spilling water on books or homework. Water bottles need to be kept in backpacks. And please NO soda at school.
-Please take time to talk with your child about labeling their name on all of their materials/supplies. We will also do this in school. Pencils and notebooks have been missing lately and we want to make sure everyone has their name on materials and keeps track of everything. We are working hard on organization with cubbies and with all materials. Thank you.
-----------------------------------------------------------
-Our class has not had much time in the Art specialist. My goal for 208 students is to have the opportunity to create artwork in homeroom. I am teaming up with Gia (Art specialist) and have two projects that we will be piloting very soon. More information to come. I will be looking for many parent/guardian volunteers to help with donating supplies and your time in the classroom! :)

Save the dates:

Friday, March 10th - Ski trip (all day)
Friday, March 24th - MN Zoo field trip *Looking for many volunteers to help chaperone for skiing and zoo trip!
Upcoming volunteer event: Next Monday, Feb. 27th from 9 AM to 12 PM volunteers from Junior Achievement will come with planned activities surrounding career planning! If you are interested in volunteering for part of the time or for the full three hours please contact me. We would love the extra support!

***We are running low on disinfecting wipes for our tables. Donations would be wonderful and very helpful. Shout out to Isaiah's family for donating paper towels!

Thank you for the support and have a wonderful week.

Best,
Alexandra
