The 3 Rs
· Be Respectful
· Be Responsible
· Be Ready
These go hand in hand with; never give up, encourage others, and do the right thing. That is what I try to live by, and inspire my students to follow.
Snacks, Water, Library Day, and Appreciation
· After considering children’s needs, I believe that children should bring their own snack each day.
· Students that wish to bring a water bottle, may bring one. They will be able to get a drink when needed. Library day is Tuesday.
· I really appreciate all of the sweet children, teachers, and parents that I have met at Broadmoore.

A Wonders’ study guide (The Pencil Page) for Spelling, Vocabulary, and Skills we are learning for the week, Math Homework, and a Reading Log to Initial will be sent home on Mondays in the Homework Folder. Math Homework and the Reading Log will be due on the following Monday. I will give them a new Wonders’ study guide for Spelling and Vocabulary. A vital part of improving reading skills is to practice, daily. Reading Logs are sent weekly for Parents to initial. Please look at your child’s Behavior Chart, daily.
Accelerated Reader Levels were sent home and signed. Your child should be choosing books on their level to read and take a quiz. If a child's level is above Second Grade, they may still read some books on the Second Grade Level. If their level is below Second Grade, they need to be reading on their level to take a quiz.
Lexia is a website that may be accessed from the Dashboard on the Broadmoore website. The username is the child's first and last name with no capital letters, and no spaces. The Password is their lunch number.
