• School Hours

    School opens at 7:10am.  Breakfast is served from  7:10-7:35 am.  Please make sure your child arrives to school on time.  Learning starts promptly at 7:40 am and continues until the end of the school day at 2:50 pm.



    It is very important to me to have constant contact with all of my parents.  To ensure a strong partnership we need to be able to communicate on a regular basis.  If you have any concerns or would like to share information regarding your child, please feel free to message me through ClassDojo, call during office hours, email me, or place a note in your students take home folder.

    Take Home Folders

    Your child's folder will be used as a communication tool for behavior.  It is very important that the folder is checked everyday for important papers and information.  In your child's take home folder will be a behavior calendar that needs to be initialed everyday.  Please click the lkink to review the class behavior contract with your child.


    Behavior Expectations

    I have high expectations of all of my students.  I expect ALL students to contribute to a positive classroom environment in which everyone feels safe to take risks in their learning. Students are expected to follow the  3 R's:  Be respectful, Be responsible, and Be a Role Model.  For more in depth explanations of rules please read the CPE Parent and Student Handbook for school rules and the "Paw"sitive Behavior Contract for classroom rules and consequences.


    Sanford Harmony

    All students will be particiapting in Sanford Harmony as part of our Social Studies curriculum.  When we begin discuss a new topic, a parent letter discussing what it is and some suggested at home activities will be posted in the Social Studies folder assignments.  Below is an overview of the program:


    Sanford Harmony provides educators with the tools to foster and support social connections among all students, and to promote the social, emotional, and cognitive skills students need to successfully negotiate peer interactions, develop positive peer relationships, and thrive in school. Sanford Harmony incorporates multiple methods to teach positive relationships and create an inclusive classroom environment. A multi-layered approach is necessary to build a mutually respectful learning community.


    These goals are accomplished through:

    Relationship-building lessons and activities that help students learn and practice key social-emotional competencies.
    Everyday practices that provide students with ongoing, supported opportunities to interact with peers and participate in dialogue and decision-making about issues related to the classroom community.

    By combining these approaches, students not only gain interpersonal competencies, but they also have continual experiences that promote the development of positive attitudes and relationships, as well as a supportive classroom climate.
