Hello My Name Is...

Jasmine Killings

2017-2018 School Year


Dear Parents,


I would like to welcome you and your child to the start of a new school year! We are going to have a busy and productive year filled with exciting learning activities, social events, and so much more.

It is my pleasure and privilege to be the teacher in your child’s classroom. This is my first year with Jefferson County Schools. My experience has included working first and second grade in New Mexico with the Alamogordo Pubic School System. I am fully certified and licensed.

I have high expectations for your child, and I will be doing all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations. Respect is what I give to my students, and Respect is what I expect from my students. To provide your child with the excellent educational climate they deserve, I have developed the following guidelines:


Classroom Management Plan

RULES

1. Listen to and follow directions the first time they are given

2. Be Respectful

3. Be Prepared

4. Be Productive

5. Be Safe


If You Choose to Break a Rule

First Time: Student receives a warning

Second Time: Student will have a short conference with the teacher

Third Time: Silent lunch will be assigned.

Fourth Time: Parents will be called, and a note is sent home to be signed, and returned the next day.  

Fifth Time: Student will have a conference with the principal

*** Severe Offense: Parent and principal will be contacted immediately.


Reward System

Praise (daily)

Positive notes home (random) Class dojo Treasure Box               

 


Work Polices

Parents are the key to making homework a positive experience for children. Therefore, I ask that you help to make homework a top priority at home. Please provide your child with the necessary supplies, a quiet working environment, as well as lots of praise and encouragement. Homework will only cover materials taught in class so they should be able to do the work on their own. If you feel that your child has given his/her best effort, please give some help. If there is still a problem with understanding, send me a note so that I can help.  


Not completing homework, or forgetting to turn it in, is a problem for some students. Students will be encouraged to make up their late work. Students will need to complete any missed work before they can receive their weekly rewards.  

Your help and support will not only make your child more successful in school this year, but will also instill good study habits that will last a lifetime.  


Communication

Finally, I want you to know that it is so important to keep the lines of communication open. Please do not hesitate to write me notes in your child’s student planner. Class dojo is the fastest way to reach me throughout the day. You may also call the school and leave a message for me. I will return your call.


Thank you for your assistance and support.


Sincerely,


Ms. Killings
