    Dear students and parents,

                It is at this time we would like to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.  This is an exciting time for all of us. Before we get to the nuts and bolts of room 18, I would like to take this opportunity to let you know about our school wide goals for this year. The first is attendance, as the saying goes "If you miss school, you miss out!" Last year, Hill Creek had the highest attendance rating of the entire district. With your help, we are hoping to repeat that again this year. Our second school wide goal is what I like to call "The Bulldog Way".  As an entire school we will be focusing on 3 character traits: Kind, Responsible & Safe. We will be discussing and demonstrating what it is to be kind, responsible, and safe both inside and outside the classroom. These traits will be echoed and seen each and every day on our entire campus! Our class goal is alway be kind, responsible, and safe every day in and out of room 18.
     Classwork/ Homework
    Students will receive an assignment calendar every week to be used to record assignments on a daily basis. You may also check my website to see assignments/tests assigned for that day and for upcoming quizzes, tests and projects. 


    *Grades will be available on-line this year. Student and parent access codes will be available and sent home early in the year and all are encouraged to monitor grades on a weekly basis. If your child is missing work or tests because of an absence, then he or she must take the responsibility to get these items turned in to the late/ absent basket located in my classroom for full credit. I will also accept late work or tests, not due to an absence, for partial credit. Accuracy, neatness, and best effort are essential for your child to meet the expectations of this class.



     I wlll be using Class Dojo. This will allow you to monitor your child's daily behavior. Explaining when redirection was needed and to show you your child's positive reinforcement of " the Bulldog Way". Class Dojo will also allow me to communicate with you about upcoming events and reminders.

    Once again, welcome to the new and exciting year. I look forward to working with each and of you this year. I welcome any questions, concerns and/or suggestions you may have.
      Thanks for your time and support.
