Welcome to a new school year! It has been wonderful meeting all of the families and having time to get to know my new students individually. Thank you for allowing us to come into your homes, and making time to meet with us. Mr. Walker and I look forward to a great year.

School Year 2016-2017
Welcome to a new school year!
I am excited about the new school year and all of the new friends that are in my classroom. We have lots of wonderful things planned this year and I look forward to working with each and every family to ensure that the children get the maximum benefit of being in a Pre-K4 classroom in DC Public Schools.
Many things are starting to come home in your child's backpack. Please take the time to read them, and when necessary, sign and return items. I will try to post the documents that were sent home on the school website.
Feel free to send me a message if you have a question or concern. I look forward to a wonderful working relationship as we connect our home and school communities.
Your Partner in Education,
Winter Break is almost here!
However, there are lots of things to remember before we can relax and enjoy that time set aside for friends and family.
December 14, 2015, all of the Early Childhood class will go to the Publick Playhouse for a child-friendly program. This trip will include lunch.....at no cost to the families. Sorry guys, but we are not in need of chaperones for this one.
December 16, 2015, the 1st graders will perform for the entire school. the performance will be at our local high school, Ballou. The entire school will travel to support the program.
December 17, 2015, all of the Pre-K4 classes will go to the Kennedy Center for a performance of Elephant and Piggie. This is a short trip, so all classes will have lunch prior to leaving the building. Sorry guys, but we are not in need of chaperones for this one.
December 18, 2015, the entire school will travel to see the movie Star Wars. many of my students have returned the permission slip and money ($10 per person), including one parent. If you would like for your child to attend this trip, please make sure that the permission slip and money are turned in to the classroom teacher by Friday, December 11, 2015.
In the event that your child does not attend the movie, Star Wars, there will be several activities at school for them to enjoy.
In addition to all of the wonderful outings that are planned, on Tuesday, December 15, a Holiday Activity Packet will be sent home. Please take time over the break to complete the review activities with your child.
I hope I haven't missed an event. December is always so busy at school.

Important Upcoming Events
When October starts we are all excited about fall, but before we know it the school year become extremely busy. With that being said, A lot will take place in the coming weeks:
Family Literacy Projects started today. We have 4 fabulous presentations. I am looking forward to more this week. If you are in need of help or clarification, please reach out to me.
October 22, 2015, our class will visit the historic Tudor Place to learn about its history, visit the garden and use water colors. This is a relatively short trip because we will return to school in time for lunch. There is no cost to the families, nor is there a need to pack a lunch.
October 26, 2015, our class will visit a local grocery store, Giant, to help us build background knowledge for our new theme Grocery. The students will receive a guided tour of the different departments and the roles that the store employees play in making sure the grocery store works for the community. We will be using public transportation, so no cost or need for lunch because we will return to school by 11:30am.
Ocotober 26, 2015 begins SPIRIT WEEK for Leckie ES. Please check out all of the wonderful activities that the PTO has put together to make sure that everyone that wants to be included feels that way. The Grand finale will be the Boo Bash(costume dance) held at Leckie afterschool on Thursday 10/29. After the dance, children will be allowed to collect treats from the various classroom. What a wonderfully safe way to celebrate.
