September 2020

  • Back to School

    Homework/Friday Folders: Your child will receive Reading and Math homework Monday thru Thursday. Math will be sent home each night and needs to be returned the next day.  Reading homework will be sent home on Monday in their green Friday Folder.  Students will choose one book to read for HW for the entire week. This will help build stamina, fluency, and comprehension. The completed reading log is due on Friday.  Homework serves to enrich and reinforce what we have learned in school that day.  Please help your child to develop good work habits by establishing a quiet place for the completion of homework. 

    Take-home Folders: Your child’s Springfield folder is to go home each day and should be checked each night by a parent/guardian. Please remove any papers on the Leave Home side daily to help keep your child organized. Completed homework, lunch money, and notes to the teacher or school must be sent into school in the take home folder. I will check this each morning.

    Attendance: Students should be in the classroom by 8:50 each morning or they are marked late. If your child is absent, on the day they return they must have a note stating the date and reason they were absent.

    Dismissal: If your child's regular dismissal routine is being changed, you must send in a note. Without a note they will be dismissed as usual.

     Money: When money is needed to be sent in, please make sure it is placed in a sealed envelope. On the envelope, please mark your child's name, the amount enclosed, and its purpose ( picture money, lunch, book fair, etc.) This will save time, and ensure no money is lost.

    Communication: The best way to reach me is through email, atraino@springfieldschool.org, or the Remind App.  Please feel free to contact me at any time if there is a question or situation you would like to discuss.  I feel as though open lines of communication between the parent, student, and teacher are the key to promoting an educational climate that is conducive to learning. I will be using the Remind App to send out reminders for upcoming events.

    Class Dojo: Class Dojo is a way for me to motivate the students’ learning behaviors.  Students can earn points for making good choices as well as lose points for displaying negative behaviors.  All behaviors will be documented and shared if needed.

    Birthday Treats: Your child’s birthday is a special day and we look forward to celebrating in class with a special recognition! Unfortunately, students will not be able to bring in a treat for the class this year.
