    Dear Parents,

                 Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Wylam Elementary School. I am delighted to have your student in my classroom this year and look forward to sharing the school year together with him/her. As a teacher, I will endeavor to create an educational partnership with you and your student that will foster courage, determination, and passion for knowledge. In addition to this, my commitment as an educator will be to provide your student with a nurturing and challenging educational environment that will ensure his/her academic success with the Alabama State and Common Core Standards for Kindergarten and ALAKids.


                 Homework will be assigned to your son/daughter every evening, Monday through Thursday. It will reinforce concepts already discussed in class and always be a natural extension of their class coursework.  


                Since attendance and appropriate behavior at school are crucial to the learning process, it is imperative that your son/daughter attends school every day. During the first week of class, I will be working together with my students to develop a set of classroom rules, rewards and consequences. Your son/daughter should be in class no later than 8:00 a.m. Instruction will begin promptly every day. If an absence or tardy is unavoidable, your son/daughter will have the opportunity to complete their missed assignments, but nothing can recreate the classroom environment filled with student~teacher interaction when a student is late or absent.


                Through our strong partnership, I will ensure that our common goal to have your son/daughter reach his/her full potential with the Alabama State and Common Core Standards will be realized. Please look for future communications regarding behavior policies, classroom rewards and consequences, grading procedures, and daily schedules. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank each one of you in advance for both your support and partnership for the upcoming school year.
