Week of 8-31-2020 First Day Kdg Orientation!

Dear Families,

Hooray Hooray it’s the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! I am SO excited to have your child in room 106 and want to welcome you all to DuVall Elementary School. This year your shiny new penguin and I will experience a love for our classroom family and education together. Although we are beginning virtually, I want you all to know that I am right here with a huge heart, personality and love for teaching the young child. I have just finished teaching summer school virtually and we had a blast each day working together as a team so I promise you it is not only possible, but enjoyable for the kiddos! Below I have prepared a few videos for your child and family to watch today and one little assignment. Your child will watch the read aloud and draw a picture (with your help of course!) of how they feel today on the first day of school. Of course I would LOVE to see it and share with the class. So, if you would like to show your child how you will send in a picture of their work this year snap a pic and reply to our post! They will be so excited to see they are famous! Enjoy the videos and I will share more fun activities each day at 8:55am sharp! Remember, I will be available each day from 8:45am-4:00pm. The first week of school, I will be calling each family to say hello and check in, greet your child and family and make sure that you have the materials you need. We can also troubleshoot any issues we encounter with technology! Looking forward to it.

  1. Nolan says β€œI’m a little bit scared but also excited. I can’t wait to see who my classmates are on our video day Thursday. I hope you like my picture Mrs. Ross! I heard you are a really good teacher Mrs. Ross. That book was pretty funny but also pretty learning. Thank you for sharing.”

    • Wow Nolan thank you so much for the wonderful compliment. I am always a little bit scared on the first day of school too, but as soon as I see the happy faces of my kindergarten class my heart becomes so happy and I forget what I was even worried about. I am so glad that you like the story, I love books and learning too. I am so excited for Thursday as well and I just know that all your new friends are going to love you too! See you soon my darling.
