Dear Parents & Guardians:

I hope that you and your children have had a fantastic summer break and that you are off to a great start for the 2018-2019 school year! As your child’s special education teacher, I will be working hard to help him/her make significant academic progress in a safe, structured, and positive environment. I will maintain regular communication with your child’s general education teacher and I will keep you informed with regards to your child’s progress.  I strongly believe that parents and teachers must work as a team to ensure that the children get the most they can out of each school year.

You can help by:

♦ discussing what they have read and asking questions about their school day in general.

♦ reading to your child and having them read to you regularly.

♦ helping your child with homework.

♦ calling or writing a note to the teacher with any questions or concerns you have.

♦ encouraging writing often (letters to friends or relatives, short stories, keeping a journal/diary, etc.)

♦ practicing basic math skills a few times a week.

♦ getting your child to school each day and on time.

♦ attending meetings and contacting the teacher ahead of time if there is a problem.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.  Working together, we can make this a very positive and productive year for your child.
