Welcome to Room 103!

 Dear Family,

 We are very excited to begin the 2018-2019 year with your child!  This year we will be learning shapes, colors, numbers, letters, science, and so much more! Throughout the year we are going to be discovering new things in our classroom and outside in our community. We will be taking field trips throughout the year to give your child more hands on experiences.

We cannot wait to get to know your child, as well as getting to know you. Parents are the child’s first teachers and play an important role in the success of their education. We hope to have a lot of opportunities for family involvement in and outside of the classroom. Be sure to check your child’s take home folder for important information coming from our classroom or the school. This is also a great tool for you to be able to send notes to school.

 You can contact us through:

·         Email

·         Phone (260) 423-4333 (8 – 8:30 or 3:30 – 4)

·         Take home folders

·         In person before school (8 – 8:30) or after school (3:30 – 4)

Thank you for entrusting us with your child and their education. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Rachel and Ms. Melanie
