The activity sings to the song “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” which I have included on my teacher page. Please ensure homework binders, reading bags, and books are returned to school. Many have gone missing, and I am in the process of doing a quick inventory. I have also included a review of our first set of numbers (0-30) that have been well rehearsed in class. Please practice all week and return Friday. Please continue to read books nightly, and ensure that it is return daily and also colored on their reading log sheet.

We will be discussing our heights this week as we learn what makes us unique. This will concluded our first unit in French. Next week, students will incorporate what they have learned into our first writing assignment.

My name is M. Glazier, and I will be teaching your child French this year. I look forward to laying a solid foundation as your child begins to learn French

Positive communication between teachers and parents/guardians is essential. I hope the following information will help you understand certain aspects of your child's academic year.

Teacher Page:

I post frequently on my teacher page, which is located under the “Teacher Page” tab of our school website. Student’s schedules, notices, reminders, assignments, links, etc. will be updated weekly.

Likewise, it is very important that you verify our school website on a regular basis in order to know what is going on. Many notices, updates, important reminders, etc. are posted daily.

English Language Arts:

English will be taught by Mrs. Simmons for 30 minutes daily starting next week.

Book orders:

Scholastic book orders will be sent home monthly. This is a great opportunity to build your child’s French library. Your orders also help us earn points towards additional browsing box books for our classrooms.

Homework:

I try to keep homework to a minimum. I do, however, encourage your child to read every night in French for 15 minutes. Books will begin to be sent home in late October after we have established our vocabulary and sounds. If work has been assigned, it will be due on Fridays. Any incomplete work (French, Math, etc.) will be sent home as well. If you have any questions, please contact me and I will respond via telephone as promptly as possible.

You may prefer your child to divide his/her workload throughout the week as he/she could have activities on certain nights such as: hockey, karate, dance or whatever the case may be. It is up to you! I hope this “homework routine” will be easier to organize your family’s schedule, as we encourage children to get involved in extracurricular activities.

Other information:

  • Please send a note if your child will be absent or when there is a change in the child’s routine. School policy dictates that your child will be sent on the bus if I do not have a note stating that he/she should not “take the bus.”
  • Students may keep a bottle of water (optional)
  • Gretna Green is a peanut free school.
  •  I teach from 8:30-2:30, and committed to school extra-curricular activities on most days. I will respond to messages as promptly as possible.
  • Thank you so much for your cooperation. Your child’s education is at heart.

Let’s work together to make 3FI Glazier and the greater Gretna Green community a positive learning environment for all. Cheers!

M. Glazier :)
