• To make the their child
responsible for daily tasks (i.e. homework, household chores, etc.)
Parents can also help by providing information about themselves, their professions, special interests, or other contacts that might be of use at some point during the school year. Students enjoy hearing about various careers/ adventures--share yours with us!!
Homework is vital to the success
of a students' learning. It is an extension of the learning experience
that the children have during the school day. Homework is designed to
aid and enhance their skills and help them to achieve our classroom goals.
It will never be used to merely keep students busy.
Homework generally falls into one of these four categories:
Drill: This is an extension
of work already introduced in the class. Its purpose is to strengthen
the child's weak areas.
If your child is ill, but able to do schoolwork at home, please contact the School Office by 9 AM. I will then prepare assignments that may be done without direct teacher instruction for pick up by 3 PM (or earlier as necessary). Please note however, that due to the busy nature of classroom life, I may be unable to fulfill a request in a timely manner.
Mrs. Anne Flynn
Please feel free to contact me regarding any
concern you may have for your child.
Birthdays are special occasions and we will enjoy them at school. Please know that you are welcome to send treats, edible or material.* However, it is not necessary and we will be sure to take a few moments to honor your child's special day~
* I would like to suggest alternatives to
"sweet" treats: Why not send a copy of your child's favorite
book to be donated to the classroom in honor of their birthday instead?
I will put a bookplate on the inside cover with your child's name and
birth date on it as a permanent, meaningful gift for the classroom to
enjoy. Bring in your child's favorite movie to watch--or game to play
with the class. Pencils are another great choice.
