• Hello Wonderful Parents!

    Welcome to another amazing month with your child. Your students have been working really hard to prepare for the Georgia Milestone. This month in math we will be working on telling time to the nearest minute and measuring liquid volume and mass. In reading we are working on point of view and opinion in reading and writing. In science we are studying Colonial America and fossils in science. 

    Please make sure your student charges their computer every night before bed. Too many students are coming to school with dead computers which prevents them from being able to complete assignments on time. GA milestones will be online so having a fully charged computer is very important.

    We do have a trip coming up to the High Museum March 19th. I will send the permission slips home by Monday February 10. We only need 2-3 volunteers per classroom. Please let me know if you are interested in being a chaperone.

    Students will be working on their black history projects in class as well. Please encourage your students to come to school, prepared, respectful and ready to work. With milestones coming up remaining focused and on task at all times is essential to their success.

    We are in need of some basic classroom supplies. If you can donate any of the following we would very much appreciate it: Kleenex, hand sanitizer, dry erase markers, copy paper, paper towels, and lysol or clorox wipes.

    Birthday treats can only be given out in the cafeteria during lunch time which is  10:52 am-11:22 am. Parents must also be available pass out treats in the lunchroom. If you are sending treats for valentines day your child can pass them out at the end of the day before it is time to go home.

    Homework is always posted online on google classroom on  a Monday and due that Friday. Reading homework is always on readworks. Math is normally on quizzes or khans academy. Please make sure students are completing these assignments.

    Please use classdojo to communicate with me in regard to your student during school hours 7:00 am- 3:30 pm. I will respond during that time frame. Also please allow 24 hours for a response to your questions or concerns. You can also email me at jessica.ricketts@henry.k12.ga.us. Classdojo is preferred because I recieve alot of emails daily and I will see your dojo messages easier and faster. 

    Thank you so much for your support and all you do!

    Sincerely,

    Ms.Ricketts
