Welcome to the 2013/2014 School Year!

Welcome to the 2013/2014 school year!  I hope everyone had a wonderful summer.  It's so hard to believe that the school year is already upon us.  (and so exciting!) 

This year, I have moved 3 classrooms down to room 3.  I have been in and out this week working on setting everything up. 

We will have the fabulous Mrs. Stehm this year working with our class and Mrs. Delano's class.

Open house is scheduled for Thursday, September 5th at 1:00.  This is a great chance to come checkout the classroom before the 1st day of school.  I will also be working with parents on filling out transportation forms, so I can have everything ready for Friday.  It will be VERY helpful for parents to know bus routes and stops ahead of time.  Parent pick-up numbers will be available in the office.  If you will be picking up your child, you will need to have the number card every day. 

The only items your child will need for school is a lunch box and a backpack.  The backpack needs to be big enough to hold a binder and should not have any wheels.  (they are not safe on the stairs and we don't have the room in our small cubbies)  If you would like to donate any items to our classroom, I will have a wish tree on the day of our open house.  Some of the items that are always needed and very appreciated are:

Ziplock baggies-sandwich, gallon and 2 gallon
Glue- Large glue sticks, white glue, and tacky glue
Shaving Cream
Large paper plates (cheap plain paper kind)
Wood Pieces-scraps or other (as long as it's smooth)
old magazines
milk caps
