Welcome to   Room 16

          

     My name is Janet Stith and I welcome you to Room 16.  My instructional assistants this year are Mrs. Villars in the AM class and Mrs. Bornstein in the PM class.   We are looking forward to meeting a new group of children and parents.  In my effort to get to know your child better, I have a short questionnaire.   If your child is in my class this year please click on the link below to answer a few questions.

      Your child will need a back pack that can easily hold a snack, a daily folder, and cold weather clothing.  A pocket folder will be provided on the first day of school.  If something happens to this one we appreciate parent replacements.  If your child goes to another program before or after school please supply a second folder so paperwork does not get mixed up.  Your child does not need school supplies.   Please leave all pencil boxes, crayons, etc. at home for "homework" and home projects.

     We will have snack every day at school.  Please send a healthy snack that your child can easily open on their own and be independent when eating. (No oranges to peel or whole apples to cut please.)   Teachers are sometimes working with small instructional groups while others are eating.    Prepackaged items like fruit cups are often difficult for children to open and can be extra messy.  Assisting with these takes eating time and teaching time away from children and teachers.  We do teach children to open packages with scissors when needed.

     During the nice fall weather we try to go outside daily.  During the winter weather we will go out two days a week with our winter gear on.  Please be sure children wear appropriate clothing and especially foot ware for the playground.

      Children learn routines quickly and we have predictable schedules each day.  Our daily schedule includes child and teacher directed tasks as well as small and large group instruction. Our curriculum focuses on reading, writing and math skills while integrating social studies and science topics.   We attend to each child's social, emotional, physical and cognitive development in a variety of ways throughout our daily activities.   I send home weekly or biweekly newsletters that will give you information about current areas of focus.

     There's always lots of fun and learning in kindergarten.  I encourage all parents to be involved in whatever way they can.  We love classroom volunteers that can come in and work with small groups of children.  The Moose Hill PTA has many events that need volunteers.  Most of all, make time for your child to tell you about his/her friends, teachers.
