2017-2018 Welcome Letter


Dear Families,

What a great first day we had.  We are and will continue to be busy learning about each other and the routines in the classroom.  I am looking forward to meeting with the parents on Parent Information Night, Thursday, September 14, to answer any questions you may have about the learning and routines of room 211.  

Our day looks like this:

       Morning Work

       Circle Meeting

       8:15-9:40 Workshop time-math, social studies and science

       9:45-10:15 Recess

       10:15-10:45 Lunch-Please let me know if your child has any food allergies or dietary restrictions.

       10:45-11:15 Read Aloud-We started Wonder by R.J. Palacio today.

       11:20-12:10 Specialists-We have Science for our first rotation

       12:15-1:45 Workshop time-reading, writing.

Thank you to all who have sent in $35.00 (and scholarships) for school supplies.  If you have not done so, please send the check (or cash) as soon as possible.  Checks may be made to Barton Open School Foundation.

As always, email with concerns or questions.  It is my hope to move to paperless notes and letters.  Please provide your email address if you have not already done so.

Please look over the pink emergency sheet.  Update any incorrect information and send back to school right away.  Your child should have the take-home folder in their backpack every day!
