Don't oversleep and miss the bus-
because you will be late.
That's a habit teachers generally
Never tell your friends at school
that you just ate a fly.
They are sure to tease you,
and wonder when you'll die.
Never call your teacher a name
when she is not near you.
Teachers' ears are excellent,
and they can always hear you.
And if your report card turns out badly,
don't blame it on your buddy.
Kiss up to your both parents, quick,
before they make you study.

Parents, we have SEP Conferences coming up at the end of this month. Mr. D and I will work very hard to make sure there is a time for you to come in and talk with us, but please note that our schedule is very tight. If you feel like you will need more than 10-15 minutes with us to discuss your child’s progress, please email ME in order to set up something outside of the scheduled conference window. Also, please note that we will be ending early (5:00) on Thursday evening, but staying until 5:30 on Tuesday and 7:30 on Wednesday. Tuesday will be our all day/during the day chance to meet with us.
If you have specific questions or concerns about your child’s progress at school, please email those questions/concerns ahead of time. It makes it a lot easier for us to prepare sufficiently to talk with you. Otherwise, just plan on hearing us praise your little darling to the high heavens.
Scheduling for SEPs is usually done through Miss Lisa in the front office.
Something to keep in the back of your mind (or on your browsing history) is my email address email@example.com and my class website, which is kvancemorningside.weebly.com. If you or your parents have any questions about anything at school, the best way to contact me is by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a note in your HOME folder. You can also find a lot of good information at kvancemorningside.weebly.com. I always put a digital copy of the newsletter on my class website, and there are some helpful links there, too.
Finally, in case you or your parents ever want to bring a treat to our classroom, they should know that we have a nut free classroom, and all treats shared in class must be store-bought.
