Dear Parents and Guardians of Emma C. Smith Elementary,
Welcome back to school!
When students arrive to our classroom on August 19th, they will find their own set of basic classroom school supplies on their desk. These supplies will be kept in our classroom:
If you would like to plan ahead for your child’s home study center, you may want to purchase some of the same supplies so that your child can have them available at home.
In addition to the basic supplies and curricular materials for learning that we have in our classroom, I would like to be able to offer some additional enrichment programs and materials to supplement and extend learning that go beyond our budget:
Please reference your child's teacher guide for specifics that will come at Cougar Arena on Wednesday, August 14th.
If you would like to donate to our classroom fund to enable these additional programs to be offered, I would welcome your support. You may donate items from the teachers list or make a check payable to “Emma C. Smith Elementary” and add “Teacher Name and Grade” in the memo. We gladly accept donations at the start of the year, and at any time throughout the year.
Please know that donations are not required of any student or family. No child will be denied participation in any activities, regardless of whether donations are given.
I look forward to involving you in your child’s education this year. Please feel free to reach out to me or your teacher with any questions or suggestions of ways that I can help you support your child’s learning.
