I am happy to be back in school! Please remember the following items:

1) Parent permission/acknowledgement forms (in a packet) NEED to be signed and returned ASAP.
2) TBT registrations MUST be completed ASAP.
3) Pictures are Thursday, Sept. 3.
4) LONG holiday weekend, Sept. 4 - Sept. 7 (NO SCHOOL)

I am trying to catch up on all I missed while I was out. Feel free to email me with any concerns.

Please Excuse My Absence

Dear Parents and Students -

This is only the 2nd time in 12 years of teaching that I've been sick like this. I feel so horrible to be gone this early in the year. However, the doctor today confirmed that I have strep throat, and so I will be out for at least one to two more days. I hope that you are doing your best for Mrs. Williams, and I will see you soon!

Planners are here!

Parents and Students - Planners will be handed out today as the science classes go to orientation. Please be sure to use these to organize your schoolwork! They WILL help you to ACHIEVE success. Try to learn the ABC's of Sunrise Ridge this week and practice the student pledge at home. We will be pretesting on stress! Remember this is to let me know what you do/don't already know, and to measure how much you've learned by the end of the year :) Happy Monday!

I'm so excited!

Wow! It was great meeting so many parents at Back-to-School night...I hope we can count on all of you for future events, too. I was so impressed with my students today in class - I can tell we are going to have a great year! Be sure to read the disclosure statements carefully and to sign and return that page only. Parents, I did assign you more homework, that green paper with questions about your child. I find it valuable to get your input on "who" your child is, outside of school as well. I appreciate the time you spend on that for me!

Sunrise Breakfast tomorrow morning...7:15 we start serving pancakes (no cost to students)...COME HUNGRY!
