    Our class will not be sharing supplies brought from home this year.  I have a set of watercolors and glue bottles that will be shared so if you send some please don’t label them, and I will use them to replenish my class sets.




    Please e-mail me with any questions/concerns at  You can also call the office and leave a message at my classroom extension 4727.  Please notify me of any important information such as changes to your child's after school plans before noon as I sometimes don't get a chance to check my messages after lunch. 






    We have a no treats policy at our school, so please do not send your child with a treat on their birthday.  I have a tradition of reading their favorite book (or a book based on a first grade theme) to the class.  Please donate a copy of their book to our class if you would like to and/or are able to.  You can sign it with their birthdate and dedication to our class.  It is a great way to build our class library and to commemorate their special day.  Your child can choose from our classroom library if they do not bring one from home.

    ***Please do NOT send invites unless you will be inviting the entire class.  This is our school's policy and will help to ensure feelings won't get hurt.


    Behavior Expectations

    This year we will continue implementing our behavior program called PAX.  PAX stands for peace, productivity, health, and happiness.  Our class will build a vision of what we think an ideal classroom and school would look like.  Throughout the year we will add to and refer to our vision.  You can find out more about this program by visiting their website at
