Classroom Information (Friday Folders, snacks, discipline,technology)


Dear Parents,

Welcome to 3rd grade at Sand Creek!  I am looking forward to an exciting and successful year with your children.  To insure this success, it will be helpful to share with you some information about our classroom.

 Discipline

I have high expectations for the students in my class.  During our first few weeks together, we will develop a mission statement and a set of guidelines for appropriate classroom behavior which align with S.O.A.R expectations.  We will be working on a sense of community in our classroom.  Classroom meetings will be held each morning.  These meetings help children understand daily schedule changes, discuss classroom and/or recess issues.  Character Ed is a curriculm which will hopefully foster a sense of integrity in each student.  Please find other resouces under the Teacher tab on the main Sand Creek website.  We will be continuing a program called "Second Step."  This program gives students tools to help them understand empathy, impulse control and conflict resolution.

Water and Snacks

All students should bring water bottles to school.  Walking to the hallway for a drink of water is often disruptive to learning.  Since the morning is long, I also suggest that each child bring a healthy snack to enjoy midmorning.  Snacks can include fresh fruit, vegetables, crackers, cheese, granola bars, fruit roll-ups, etc.  Please do not send candy, puddings, yogurt, or drinks as snack items.

Communication

Friday (or an occasional Thursday) is designated as "Take Home Information Day".  Friday Folders will include evaluated student work, community and school information.  Please review the information, remove the weekly papers, and send the folder back to school on Monday or next school day.

I do my best to update our classroom website each day after school.  This website will remind you of upcoming events, supplies needed, projects and tests.  Accessing this website will help you foster long-term planning and study techniques with your child.

Also you may email me at any time at elizabeth.boggs@dcsdk12.org.  I do my best to get back to you as soon as I poosibly can.
