Each student will have the opportunity to develop his/her reading, writing, math and other academic skills and knowledge through our reading and math programs and a wide variety of literature, hands-on activities, historical resources, scientific inquiry, manipulatives, realia, and technology. Students will be engaged in activities that develop higher level thinking skills as they work together to increase their knowledge and develop social skills. We will also participate in weekly enrichment programs for science, the arts, computers, and the library.
I realize that teaching your child is a privilege, as well as a tremendous responsibility. I will do my best this year to ensure that each student has a motivating and safe learning experience in the classroom. However, I cannot do this alone. I need your help. We both need to be partners in the learning process. I appreciate home support in maintaining high expectations of classroom performance and behavior. I need each of you to encourage your child to do their best each day, have completed assignments, and help them study for quizzes, if necessary. I know with your help that we are going to have a great year!
Sincerely, Mrs. Tweed
