What's going on in Room 125?

Room 125 Back to School Picnic!

on August 4, 2015

Hi families!

I’m baaack!

I hope you have had a fantastic summer! I spent mine playing in the mountains, growing in acro and aerial arts, babysitting, and spending time with my horse and cats. Fun times and now gearing up for another rockin’ year at Edison!

It’s time for our back to school class picnic! Here are some reasons why I love this event:

  1. It’s an opportunity to connect with new and returning families and get to know our class community.
  2. It aids in the transition back to school by allowing students to be at Edison, see me, and see each other in a fun and relaxed way (outside, playground, lunch, fun!).
  3. We have a chance to catch up about summer without also trying to talk about all the school things (this will happen Back to School Night).
  4. You can complete your registration in the office the same day and I’ll be there to offer assistance if needed. I’ll also have my classroom info forms for you to complete if you’d like to do this prior to Back to School Night (which can get so busy!)
  5. We build the psych for school!

And now, the details:

What: Room 125 Back to School Picnic

When: Thursday, August 12 at 12 pm

Where: Edison Elementary’s outdoor amphitheater (right by the “big” playground behind the school)

What to bring: Your own lunch and water, a picnic blanket (if desired)

I hope everyone can make it!

I’d love if you had a moment to send me a quick email (kelsey_wales@dpsk12.org) to let me know if you’re planning on coming and fill me in on anything about your child or your summer you’d like to share prior to our picnic.

Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon! (Please tell your children I am SO excited to see them!)

PS A note about home visits…

At the end of the year I laid out the back to school plan, which usually entails this picnic, Edison’s Back to School Night, and home visits. This year, I am required to attend a multiple day training during the time I usually complete home visits. I am trying to find a way to still visit, but we may need to change what this looks like. I may visit new families first and/or visit as the school year begins. Thank you for your flexibility and patience as I explore new options for this. Because of this change, I am even more eager to see everyone at the picnic!
