Wonderful Week in A2!

Dear Families,

What a wonderful first week!  Mrs. Vazquez and I are enjoying getting to know your and your children and are looking forward to a fantastic school year! This week we have been busy reading stories (many by my favorite author, Mo Willems), learning and practicing classroom rituals and routines, practicing writing our names the "school way" (first letter uppercase and all other letters lowercase), practicing recognizing color names, meeting new friends, and so much more!  

Thank you SOOO much to all the parents who have already donated supplies.  We can't tell you how much we appreciate your generosity and promise to put these supplies to very good use this year.  If you still want to bring in supplies, it's not too late.  We always appreciate donations.  :)  

If you have not already done so, please complete and turn in the following items on Tuesday:
-All About Me Pennant
-Yellow Emergency Form
-Signed form saying you read the Vallemar Handbook
-Classroom Volunteer Form
-Classroom Parent Contact Info (we would like to create a parent/teacher communication email list as soon as possible)

A few announcements:
Picture Day is Thursday, September 18th
Back to School Night (parents only) is Thursday, September 11th
     6:30-7:00 4th-8th grade classrooms
     7:05-7:30 Multi-Purpose Room

Homework: There is no homework packet this week.  Kindergarten homework packets will go home on Fridays (starting after BTS Night) in the yellow kindergarten homework folders and will be due on the following Wednesdays.

Hope you all have a fun-filled 3 day weekend!  We look forward to seeing you again on Tuesday morning!
