Welcome to the
Little Whales Room!
Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to the Little Whales Inclusion Classroom! I hope your child is eager to start preschool. We are excited about beginning a new school year!
We have many activities to share with your child. We would like to hear what your child is interested in and what he/she would like to learn more about. The first month will be spent getting to know each other, establishing a classroom community with behavior expectations, and learning class routines. Your child will meet new friends, and we will become a community in our classroom by helping each other with our different needs. We will be exposed to social skill instruction, peer socialization, math, literature, science, and so much more!
We are very excited to meet everyone on the first day of school. We also want to get to know your family because parent and teacher collaboration enhances student learning and academic success.
Please make sure your child's bus notice is in their backpack. If he or she is not a bus rider, please make sure we are aware of how your child is getting home. Also, please make sure that he/she is wearing the Little Whale tag enclosed with this letter for the first week of school. This will help us find your child upon their arrival at school.
Enjoy these beautiful summer days with your family!
