    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    My name is Ms. Cohen, and I am very excited to have your child as one of my fabulous fifth grade students this school year! I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with you and your child.  This year will be packed full of learning experiences and fun adventures that no one will want to miss out on!

    In order to promote academic success and a good classroom-learning environment, this year all students will be expected to abide by a few main classroom rules.  I would like for you to be familiar with our classroom rules as well as the school rules and policies.  Our main classroom rules are 1) Come to class prepared to work with materials 2) Be respectful 3) Treat others as you would like to be treated 4) Always follow directions.

    I have very high expectations for the academic school year, and I am devoted to helping your child succeed!  I believe that all students are unique and capable of learning.  I will keep in contact with you regarding your child’s grades.  I want you to always be aware of your child’s progress, so there are no surprises.

    I believe that teacher-parent communication is extremely important, and I encourage you to contact me with any and all questions or concerns.  I will be available by e-mail (dgarner@cleveland.k12.ms.us), phone (662-417-6022), or school phone (662-843-4355), or please feel free to send a note back with your child.

    I strongly encourage all parents/guardians to get involved this year!  There are opportunities to help, and I hope that you will take advantage of them.  There is a place for everyone! I am thrilled to be working with your child this year, and I cannot wait to see all of the amazing achievements this year brings!
