Parents, Welcome to Room 506!
Welcome to Middle School at Funston Elementary! My name is Mrs. Smith and I have the pleasure of having your child in my Middle School Math and Science Science class. Our middle school team is excited and looking forward to working with our students to help them reach their full potential. We will be continuing Funston’s interdisciplinary approach to education and working to incorporate technology in various forms to help our students prepare for the future.
During these first weeks, we will be getting to know one another and identifying each student’s strengths and areas of interest. I believe it is important that students feel their classroom environments are safe, while creating dynamic, creative, and motivating learning opportunities. We will emphasize positive social interactions, respect, and work on developing skills, which they will use throughout their lives.
Communication is the key to your child’s success in school. Throughout the year, we will communicate through notes, telephone calls, e-mails, progress reports, and report cards. I encourage you to get in touch with me if you have any questions or concerns. You can send a note via your child, email me at email@example.com, or call me at (773) 534-4125. If you would like to meet in person, please contact me so that we can arrange a convenient time. I will be posting homework assignments and announcements for my classroom on my website.
Would you please review with your child the Middle School Norms and Classroom Expectations. You will be receiving an Emergency Contact information form soon. Please complete it and return it to school with your child. It is VERY IMPORTANT that we have correct information. If your emergency contact information changes (a new telephone number or address), please let the school know as soon as possible. That way, in the event of an emergency, we will be able to contact you immediately.
Once again, welcome to our new school year. I look forward to meeting you at our upcoming Open House. Thank you in advance for your kind support and help.
