Reading Logs:

In an effort to promote reading and family involvement, our school will continue implementing Reading Logs for students in Pre K- Grade 5.  Each student will receive a sheet to track the amount of reading done at home.  We are encouraging 20 minutes of reading, 4 nights a week.  This includes students reading or parents reading to the student.  It is our hope that reading for 20 minutes a night will become a standard in your home.

I will include a reading log in the folder every Friday.

Thanks J

Reading Logs :  I will collect the reading log on Friday morning of each week.

Folders: I will send home folders on a nightly basis. Homework will be sent home on Tuesday and would like it back by Thursday of each week.  

Parents use this code to submit their Scholastic Book Clubs Orders to you online.

Class Code


Building a sense of safe and respectful classroom community includes simple group activities that help the children get to know each other better.  Guided discovery is a method by which areas of the room or classroom materials are introduced slowly and deliberately to the whole class. 

In a responsive classroom setting, teachers see mistakes (in academics and in behavior) as important steps in learning. They encourage students to learn from their mistakes and “try again.” They offer support and reteach as needed. At the same time, teachers provide clear expectations for behavior and stop misbehavior quickly so that students can focus on learning.
