    Welcome to the Fox Room!                   
    Hello 2nd Graders and Families,

     My name is Katherine Vastis and I would like to welcome you to the Fox Room for the 2021-22 school year. This will be my fifth year teaching 2nd grade at Stix ECC and I am eager to get to know each one of you as we learn and grow together.

    Before I meet all of you, I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I am originally from the Chicago area. I graduated from Saint Louis University in Spring of 2017 where I studied Elementary Education. During my time at SLU, I was interested in studying how to develop a strong classroom community. I am excited to create a classroom environment where each student plays a key role in fostering responsibility and teamwork.

     Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to a successful school year! Attached to this letter you will find our classroom logo, a fox. I ask that your child wears this tag on the first two days of school. If your child is a bus rider please make sure their bus card is in their book bag. You will also find a supply list of the items your child should bring with them on the first day of school.
