Dear Parent/Guardian of students in first and third grade:
This letter is to inform you that a reporter from the TV show "Chronicle" will be at the Memorial School tomorrow to film a segment about educational topics. The filming may take place in your child's classroom.
We have the photo release form for your child on file but we wanted you to be aware that this will be taking place. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 781-270-1721 or email ddresslerGbpsk12.org.
It was a long week for everyone but we finished strong! The children worked really hard at practicing our new rules and putting them into effect. I use rules from Whole Brain Teaching, as well as attention getters, some games, and a few other ideas. Here is a link to what it is all about if you are interested:
What a day we had today! I am sure your little munchkins were tuckered out because they were ready to leave by mid-morning ;)
By the end of next week, we will be all settled into our new routines and the days will just sail along.
This week we will be focusing on class rules and routines. I try to follow the Whole Brain Teaching method and have had great success.
I appreciate everyone filling out the student information sheet and the 3-2-1 form. They were a huge help in getting everyone where they needed to be. If anything went wrong with how your child got dismissed, please let me know ASAP. This week is all about fixing those kinks. As for the 3-2-1 form, I just read through them all and I felt like The Grinch...my heart literally expanded with every page I read. I am so excited to get to know these students and hearing about them through your words is special. Here is a word cloud that represents what you had to say about your children. The bigger the word, the more frequently it was used.
I was able to get pictures...unfortunately not a whole class one...and someone was in the restroom and I forgot to get him. Take 2 tomorrow ;)
I am looking forward to a great school year!
Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
