Hello Everyone! 

A special thank you to Mrs. Pappert, Mr. Pappert, Ms. Albright and Ms. Wolf for reorganizing my room and painting it. It looks and feels like a new classroom! Extra special thank you to Ms. Wolf for generously donating two whiteboards to the room as well. The kids love the room. Thank you! 


A few notes from the classroom: 

  •  As Christmas approaches, the sweet children have been inquiring about what I want for a gift. If they insist on getting a gift, please see the Classroom Wish List below. Often times these are things that the students ask for:
    • Dry erase markers (skinny and broad tipped) (Target Up&Up show up the best)
    • Board games  (especially educational)
    • Candy - for trivia questions / rewards - Jolly Ranchers
    • Books for the classroom library (new or used!) (SAVERS is cheap!)
      • If you tell SAVERS that they are going to a school - they will give you 50% off!
    • Individual desk items:   
      • Personal sharpeners 
      • Mechanical Pencils 
      • Pencil pouches 
      • Hand sanitizer or wipes 


Please have your student bring these items to class daily: 

  1. Filled Water bottle  (many students have been missing these lately)
  2. AM & PM snack
