Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!
My special education students will once again participate in a “push in” program to receive Tier 1 instruction in the regular education class with special education support staff. My 3rd grader pushes into Mrs. Dixon’s class for Social Studies and Mrs. Thomas’ class for Math and Science. My 4th graders push into Mrs. Springer’s class for Social Studies and Mrs. Spell’s class for Math and Science. My 5th graders push into Mrs. Barbre’s class for Social Studies and Mrs. McIntyre’s class for Math and Science. You may access the regular education teacher’s page to see what assignments are listed for homework and study guides, but keep in mind that the assignments might be changed, so please refer to your child’s agenda and take home folder each evening.
ELA (English Language Arts) will be taught in the special education class providing Tier 1 instruction and extra support. Students will participate in WIN (What I Need) each day to help boost reading abilities and levels. Since students’ lessons are based on his/her individual needs, homework assignments will not be posted in order to maintain confidentiality. Therefore, assignments are written daily in the student’s agenda.
Students are expected to get his/her agenda signed each day and expected to bring his/her take home folder and agenda each day.
Please read any message I may have written for you in your child’s agenda. The agenda will be our communication tool.
Very important papers will be stapled in your child’s agenda. Please sign and return the following day. Test papers will be placed in a separate folder and your signature is required on the stapled sheet on the left hand side of the folder.
I am looking forward to seeing all parents at parent/teacher conferences, and annual IEP meetings. Your child will bring home a JP22 invitation for his/her IEP meeting prior to the due date.
Your child can work on iReady. They are required to get 45 minutes of iReady Reading and 45 minutes of iReady Math per week. This is done on computer, so if you have internet access, your child can get a head start or surpass the minimum requirement! To access iReady, go to jpschools.org. Then under quick links, there is a section that says clever instant login. Click on that quick link and it will automatically take you to the Clever login, which every student knows their user name and password. However for your convenience, your student’s log in user name and password has been written on the first page of their agendas along with the website address.
Please write me messages or comments in your child’s agenda or you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
