Welcome Back Parents and Students!!!
Welcome back to another exciting year here at Frog Pond Elementary School. It is our goal to make the learning environment a rewarding and fun experience. Please know that my door is always open and I encourage parents to visit or join our class throughout the year.
Please refer to the student/parent handbook to find any policies and procedures that may be helpful to you and your child. There are some things that have changed since last year so please read through the handbook carefully and with your child. If you need to contact me here at school for any reason please call 296-1719 ex. 2307 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org I am looking forward to a wonderful 2016-2017 school year!!
Typically there will be at least two conferences scheduled during the school year to discuss your child's progress and behavior. The first conference generally occurs in October/November. It is preferable that both parents attend each conference but I understand that there are occasions where this is not possible. Conferences can be scheduled in late afternoon or early evening. Please check your handbook or my webpage calender for exact times and dates.
Volunteers are welcome to join us each day at school. You may set up a time to join us each week or whenever time is available for you. Please know that you will need to fill out a volunteer form in the office at the beginning of the school year. Volunteers will be required to have a background check to ensure the safety of our students. I love to have volunteers and encourage this throughout the year.
Snack will be scheduled in the afternoon. (1:45). Please pack a healthy snack for your child. No soft drinks!!!! See the parent handbook if you have any questions.
Waterbottles may be used during the day. We prefer water over sugary juices but we understand many students will not drink water, or will even be averse to it. Please use your judgement.
Goals and objectives:
Since each student has individual goals and objectives, please feel free to call or email me to set up a personal meeting to discuss them further. Our class will be using the New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards this year. More information can be found here
