Recent Fun Happenings in Room 6

(Please check weekly updates)

    We will emphasize developing good social skills during our daily Morning Meeting. For the next few weeks, we will be identifying various feelings, how they are expressed, and what can be done to give us a "sweet day"! In explaining examples of strategies, through effective classroom discussion,  children can change moods and facilitate their ability to insure they gain the most from a productive, happy day! How we treat others is an important topic also. 


   There are a few things that may be important for you to know:

1. Playground: To play on it, the students must be wearing something other than "flip-flops".  (for safety reasons.) The shoes must have a strap in the back.

2. Any "temporary" changes in your child's plans for dismissal should be told to a secretary in the front office. The secretary will then call down to my room.  I don't always have the opportunity to check my messages until after dismissal, at the end of the day. A substitute teacher can't access my voice mail either. Please don't rely on my voice mail for anything urgent.

3. Regular dismissal will be from the All Purpose Room promptly at 3:05.
