News & Notes

Getting Started.
 
We have gotten our year off to a great start so far. We spent the first week and a half of school getting to know each other, learning routines for our classroom, and talking about our school and classroom rules and expectations.
 
Your child will have homework each week. The most important homework is reading. Your child will be expected to read for 20 minutes for 4 days each week - not over the weekend. Be sure to fill out his or her reading log. There will also be a math worksheet each week, which will be similar to what we are doing in class. 
 
Homework will be due each Friday. Your child will have all week to get it done.  
 
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. The best way to reach me is by email: paul.castelloe@bcsemail.org. I check my email at least twice a day (once in the morning, first thing, and once after school). You may also send in a note (Spanish is fine) or call Emma before or after school. 
 
Your children are wonderful. I am so pleased to be their teacher.
