•  Dear Parents/Guardians,

         Each student is provided with a RED communication folder from the school.  The purpose of this folder is to provide a successful communication line between the parents and their child's teacher.  Please remind your child to bring his or her red folder to school every day! Make sure to check your child’s folder daily for notes, school updates, and homework.  Tests will also be sent home in this folder.  Please review, sign, and return these tests to me the following day.  You may also send office notes, book orders, or notes to me in this folder to review.

         My students will be copying their homework assignments and school messages into their PLANNERS each day. It is very important that you check your child's planner for these assignments and messages. Please sign your child's planner each day so I know you have seen it, even when there is no homework. I will be checking for your signature every morning before our day begins.  

        There is a limited amount of space in the children’s desks. Please do not send binders, art kits, or TOYS to school! You may send in pencils and a notebook with your child. We have a 15 minute snack in the morning before lunch. Please send one nutritious snack and drink with your child each day.  Recess will be in the afternoon.  Please do not send in any toys or balls with your child.  I will provide chalk and sports equipment for my students to use on the playground.

        If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at sharkeyt@hasdk12.org or send a note to school with your child and I will respond as quickly as possible. Together, we can make this an enjoyable and productive year for your child!
