Back to School Information
I hope you enjoyed your summer break. I am looking forward to starting our year together! You are really in for a fun-filled year of learning and adventure. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us!
Here is some important information for the start of the year:
Please refer to the tab "School Supplies" to make sure you have everything ready to begin the year!
The TEAM folder (provided by me) will be brought home every night and brought back to school each day. This folder is a great way to stay connected between school and home. In this folder you will find important notices and homework.
Please send your child to school with a peanut free snack and a water bottle each day. Your child should be able to comfortably manage opening his/her snack independently.
Students will be enjoying both indoor and outside recess this year. Please make sure your child is wearing appropriate footwear and clothing so that they can comfortably and safely play. Please DO NOT let your child bring in toys from home. Bringing toys from home can create conflict and misunderstandings if items are traded or lost. There are plenty of toys and activities that students can have fun with right in the classroom.
Birthdays will be celebrated in many fun ways. Although passing out food items is not permitted, your child may bring in non-edible items such as Play-Doh, pencils, small toys, and stickers to hand out to their classmates
Your child will be able to draw or take photos and videos of their daily school work and post it to their account. They will also be able to complete assignments on the application that have been virtually assigned to them. You can engage with your child on Seesaw by hitting the like button and commenting on their school work. Please note that your child will not be able to view anyone else's portfolio or work. I will provide them with feedback on their work.
***Individual login information will be sent out during the first full week of school. Please make sure to sign up for Seesaw Family so that you will be able to receive any important announcements/reminders from me.
Applications that will be utilized this year:
- Using Clever Badge to Login to Clever
- Accessing Seesaw through Clever
- Posting to your Seesaw Journal
- Responding to a Seesaw Activity
- Seesaw - Getting Started
- Seesaw - Tour of the Class App
More information on all of these applications will be explained at Back to School Night.
