    “Dedicated to Reaching and Teaching EVERY Child” 

     Dear Families,

                Welcome to the 2016-2015 school year at Kimmel Farm Elementary.  I am delighted to have your child in our classroom this year and look forward to sharing the school year together with him/her.  As a teacher, I will endeavor to create an educational partnership with you and your child that will foster courage, determination, and passion for knowledge.  In addition to this, my commitment as an educators will be to provide your child with a nurturing and challenging educational environment that will ensure his/her academic growth and success in 1st grade.

                 The 1st grade curriculum is challenging and moves at a steady pace, homework will be an important reinforcement tool to help students achieve mastery.  Homework will be assigned to your son/daughter every Monday and will be due on Friday morning. The purpose of these assignments will be to reinforce concepts already discussed in class and always be a natural extension of their class work.  

                 Attendance and appropriate behavior at school are crucial to the learning process; it is imperative that your son/daughter attends school every day and is ready to do their best work.  During the first two weeks of school, we will be working together to develop and set the classroom rules, rewards and consequences.  All family members are invited to visit and help in our classroom.  We will be taking field trips as well as having occasional classroom celebrations.  We will need your help to make these events successful.  You are a very important part of the education and success of your child.  You are encouraged to visit our classroom anytime, but please make sure to sign in at the office and receive a visitor’s pass.

                 Through our strong partnership, we can ensure that our common goal to have your son/daughter reach his/her full potential will be realized.  Please look for future communications regarding behavior policies, classroom rewards and consequences, grading procedures, and daily schedules.  I would also like to take this opportunity to thank each one of you in advance for both your support and partnership for the upcoming school year.   You are welcome to contact  me anytime you have a question or concern.   I can be reached at 336-703-6760 or dcstowe-hosch@wsfcs.k12.nc.us.  I look forward to a fun and exciting year with your family.
