    Welcome Back To School! 

    Preparing for the First Day:  The first day of first grade is a very exciting time!  Students will be starting in a brand new school with a new teacher and new classmates.  Hopefully you will take advantage of Open House to tour the school building and get a peek into our classroom.  I have been busy preparing things for the school year and am anticipating the start of the year as much as the students!  Browsing our class website is a great way to prepare for the first day of school.  You can check out many of our policies for Kindergarten and specifically for our class.  

    If you have any questions or concerns before the first day please feel free to email me.  It helps me to know things like "My son always goes by his nickname" or "My daughter is a little shy and nervous about school this year" or "My child suffers from really bad allergies".  This type of information will help me be more sensitive to your child's needs. 


    Contacting Me: Please email me at hwatson@swsdk6.com. Our class does utilize Class Dojo, but the messaging section will be reserved for quick reminders or questions. Thank you!


    School Messenger: If you have not done so already you can sign up for school messenger alerts from the school district.  The district uses email and phone services to send out important messages throughout the year.  You may need to sign up for or update contact information to receive these emails.  Please refer to the district website for more information.

    Back to School Night will be on Wednesday, September 28th from 6-7:30pm. Picture day will be on Friday, September 16th and our class is scheduled for 9:50.
    Book Orders:  Our class participates in Scholastic Book Clubs.  Please refer to the Book Clubs section of the site for details.  I hope to begin book clubs in September or October.
