First Day Letter
Monday, August 30, 2010 9:55 PM

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. We are lucky to have a student teacher, Ashley Gonwa, working with us this year. I am looking forward to meeting with the parents on Parent Information Night, Thursday, September 2, to answer any questions you may have about the learning and routines of room 211. On that night I will also have a sign up for goal setting conferences.

Thank you to all who have sent in $20.00 (and scholarships) for school supplies. Checks may be made to Barton School.

We will be using Time for Kids in the classroom this year. The cost of the subscription is $6.00, again made payable to Barton School. Our first issue will arrive Sept 4. Please send in the money as soon as possible.

The stretch between breakfast and lunch and then lunch and dinner seems long to most of the kids so I will again be asking for snack donations. Crackers, pretzels, fruit snacks, granola bars etc. Children are also welcome to finish up anything they did not get a chance to eat from their lunch at snack time.

Most children like to bring a treat to celebrate their birthday. I welcome this. We have 27 children in the class and the allergies I am aware of so far is a peanut allergy. Please keep this in mind when thinking of the birthday treat. (Let me know of other food allergies please.)

The annual and necessary paper work for you to fill out will be sent home Wednesday. Please take the time to fill out all the papers, I know its a lot, and return them the next day. It helps me immensely if I can get these things returned in a timely manner.

As always e-mail, (preferred) or voice mail 612-668-7527 with concerns or questions.
