It is hard to believe that we are not only in the fourth quarter already but that the end of the 2017-2018 school year is literally just around the corner! What a year it has truly been! The goal of every school year is growth and this year in our classroom, we have experienced growth on every level. We have so many reasons to celebrate, there have been gains in academics, language, behavioral management and independence. The kids have faced a lot of personal challenges and change and have embraced them with grace. It is such a joy to not only be able to witness their growth, but to also be a part of it is something I consider as a blessing.
As all of you know I am expecting a baby and my due date is fast approaching. With the exception of going into labor beforehand and or medically needing to leave earlier, my expected last day for this school year is going to be Tuesday May 1, 2018.
My position will be filled by substitute, Samantha Byram or Mrs. B for short. She is coming to us from Spectrum of Hope and is full of enthusiasm, resources and has a great deal of experience with ABA which are the principals and methods we use in the classroom at this time. I am very confident in her ability to successfully complete the end of the school year while maintaining our classroom standards, behaviors and academics.The other staff members in the classroom will remain: Edana Fontenot and Tonya Sparks will remain as paraprofessionals during this time and we will also have a third paraprofessional position active in the classroom during which will be filled by substitutes.
We have been very luckily to have had Mrs. Byram join our class already, on Monday April 16th she arrived ready to dive in head first and the children have taken very well to her! Our plan is to have Mrs. Byram stay with our classroom until I go on leave, allowing the students to become comfortable and adjust to her as well as allow her to adjust to a new classroom and get to know the students before it is time to take over. This transition has been very positive! Mrs. Nagel will also be maintaining a close relationship with our classroom as always ensuring that things are running smoothly and supporting where/if necessary.
During the time of my maternity leave if/when you have questions, concerns or needs, you should still send an email to my school email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Mrs. Byram will be checking my email daily, and I will also be checking my email daily as well and will communicate with the classroom staff if I see something immediate so it does not get missed.
Just a few reminders of important dates coming up:
Thursday April 26th 2018- Rodeo Run
Friday April 27th- Country Fair
Friday May 4th- Challenge Day
Friday May 18th- Field Day
Monday May 28th- NO SCHOOL- Memorial Day!

Mrs. Lindsey Webber
Information on the Rodeo Run that is taking place next Thursday, April 26th is going home tomorrow in Wednesday folders as to what time students will be running in the Rodeo run. At this time the current schedule is set as follows:
Mrs. Webber’s 4th Grade students will be running in the Rodeo Run during the 4th Grade time slot of 8:50-9:45.
3rd Grade students will be running during the SLL time slot.
If for whatever reason the sensory level is too high or your child is overwhelmed, we can/will be bringing that student inside and will try again during the SLL time slot of 9:45-10:40.
The running during the SLL time slot will actually take place from 9:45-10:15 however the time slot is extended to allow for necessary adjustments if needed.
As a reminder you are welcome to come and cheer on your student, please save yourself time and pre- register using the form that is going home. If you cannot pre-register you will need to sign in in the office before being allowed to go outside to cheer your student on. All forms must be returned by the due date.
In the next few days I will be sending home a Letter and E-mail regarding more important dates coming as well as a few reminders for the end of the year! I cannot believe “end of the year” is even being talked about already!!
Stay tuned for more information!
We will be having a Valentine’s Day Party in our SLL classes on Wednesday, February 14th.
It will be at a different time as the general education classroom parties so our students can attend their inclusion class party, as they are able. You can sign up to bring items for our ice cream sundaes at: http://signup.com/login/entry/1216986313094256053
If you plan to send valentines there are 13 students total between both classes. Please e-mail me at email@example.com for a complete list if you need one.
As always if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
