Dear Families and Friends,
Can you believe it’s almost time to set sail on our adventure together? It’s going to be a fun year filled with lots of learning, and new adventures, and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. I can’t wait to learn more about you and, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I went to college at the University of Southern Maine in Gorham and Portland. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Communication, my K-8 teaching certification, and my Master’s Degree in Education. This is my fifth year teaching at Skillin School. Before teaching at Skillin, I taught 1st grade in Biddeford and Waterboro, as well as kindergarten in Scarborough. I love calling Skillin my home!
So far this summer I have attended several Red Sox games, spent lots of time reading by the pool, and relaxing at the beach. I’ve also adopted a puppy, named Fenway, who will join my 9 year old dog, Cami. I can’t wait to hear about your summer!
There are a couple things to know before we set sail into the school year. Please send your child to school with a healthy snack and a cool drink (a bag lunch and a cool drink if needed)! We’ll have snack time every morning and your child will need a snack each day. Please remember, all classrooms are nut-free. School lunch is available for purchase every day, even on the first day of school.
Instead of creating a newsletter, I have a classroom website for you to check at your convenience to see what we’ve been learning and doing in the classroom. Check it out at Skillin School’s website.
We will be having a “Meet and Greet” on Wednesday, August 31 from 5:00-6:00. This is an opportunity for you and your child to visit me and our classroom. Our classroom is room 107. I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer, and I look forward to seeing you all at the end of the month!
P.S. More information about classroom routines, specials, and other information will go home the
first week of school.
