Class Information

General Information


My email address is:


Take-Home/Communication Folders:
These folders will be the home-school routing system and will need to be seen daily. Notes, newsletters, letters from the teacher, homework, special projects, and other announcements will be sent throughout the week in the folder. Folders will be taken to and from school daily for you and your child to look through.

Conference Period:
I am available to discuss your child from 9:00-10:00 daily. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I will do my best to return your call or answer your notes as promptly as possible. Often I do not have a chance to check my e-mail until after the students have left for the day. If you need to contact me immediately, please call the school.

Homework:
Weekly, your child will come home with a newsletter and homework for the week. There will be a list of “must-do” items and then some choices. Homework is due every Friday unless otherwise noted. Homework should take no longer than 20 minutes a night. If it is taking your child longer to complete assignments, please let me know. I expect your child to read his/her book in a bag each night for extra reading practice.

Guided Reading Book:
Each night your child will bring home a book from his or her “Book Box”. This is a leveled reading book for your child to read every night. We read and discuss the books in class during guided reading. The same book will most likely come home a few nights in a row. Rereading books improves a readers comprehension and fluency. Be positive with your child about rereading their books for a second time! Please keep the book in your child's take home folder whenever you are not reading it. This will protect the books from pets, spills, younger siblings, etc. The book MUST come to school daily! Please read with them and ask them questions about the story to work on their comprehension.

Monday Mail:
Your child will bring home school wide information (PTO, notes, letters from office, flyers, etc.) on Mondays in their take home folder.

Please empty and return the folders on Tuesday. You can sign up for the Woodridge E-Blast on the Woodridge Home page and receive Monday Mail electronically.

Library:
We go to the library every other Friday. Students are allowed to check out two books at a time. We try to encourage the students to choose one book on their independent reading level as well as one book that they are interested in reading. Please encourage your child to read every night!

Parent Helpers:
Parents can volunteer to work with individuals or small groups in the classroom, listen to kids read orally, send in needed supplies, help on field trips, share a talent, etc. Check your schedules for days and times that you would like to help and I will start a class volunteer schedule. Any help will be appreciated…weekly, monthly, etc. Just make sure you have completed a DPS background check before volunteering!

Snack/Birthdays:
Please send in a daily healthy snack for your child.  Please do not send in any nuts or nut products for snack.

For birthdays, parents are welcome to send in a treat that is easy to pass out like cupcakes, cookies or doughnuts. The birthday treat will be passed out during recess at 2:50. This will not be a party.

Also if you want to send in invitations for birthday parties outside of school, that is fine with us as long as they are for the whole class or all the boys/all the girls. Invitations to students in other classes will need to be mailed out.
