First grade Dual Language families, you will be amazed at just how much your child will grow this year. As our first cohort of Dual Language students, we are embarking on an amazing and challenging journey. 

Staying involved in your child's education is the key to a successful year. Engage your child in conversation about his/her day, but know that children won't always give out much information. Check your child's take home folder EVERY evening. You'll usually find it PACKED with school and homework, projects, flyers, notices from the office, as well as notes from us. You can use this as a springboard for discussion; instead of saying "What did you do at school today?"  You can say, "Oh, I see you're learning about....what did you find out?"

I encourage you to visit our classroom at any time. I can always use an extra pair of hands and another smiling face when I am working with the children. I am in need of helpers who can come on a regular schedule, whether weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, as well as helpers who would just like to drop by when they can.

I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate with you through notes, emails and parent-teacher conferences. Feel free to contact me for any reason, we are a team. Our teamwork will ensure the success of your child.
