First Week of School

Hi Folks,

Welcome back to school. I hope everyone had a great summer.

Over the next few weeks we will be working on classroom routines. This will allow me to get to know the students.

The boys and girls have started cursive writing and this will be a focus for the first part of this term. We have gym on days 1 and 3, and music on day 2. Next week I will be able to schedule a library period.

The boys and girls will have homework from time to time. This will usually be work that they didn't get done in class such as spelling and math.

Looks like a good year!

Sincerely,

Andrew Plater
