Welcome letter

  • Greetings 2nd grade parents,

    I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as your child’s teacher for the 2016-2017 school year.  I am coming out of many years of teaching middle school and junior high grades with a wealth of knowledge to provide a strong foundation for your child.  I am a professional educator that strategically challenges the brain to excel to its full potential.  I welcome your child into my classroom where intentional and explicit instructions are delivered daily. Higher level thinking is encouraged and nurtured in preparation for their professional life.  I also welcome your child with the expectation of a strong foundation and an even stronger support system at home.  I, as a parent myself acknowledge the critical influence of the home.  I understand that the home is the child’s first learning environment and that is why we anticipate collaborating with you for the success of your child.

    To maximize all learning & prevent classroom disruptions, any and all telephone & one-on-one conferences between parent and teacher MUST be scheduled (per BPS code of conduct pg. 1 & teacher contract).  Other means of communication are as follow: correspondences (allow at least 48 hours for responses), teacher webpages, REMIND ME @ remind.com (text based communication through remind.com).  Simply text @e3egf to 81010 to enroll.  Enrollment is now open.

     

    Educationally yours,

    Mrs. Morales, M.S. Ed. Leadership
