Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Welcome to room 125!  I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child, and working together to help your child succeed!  As parents and guardians, I understand that you are the most important teachers in your child’s life and it is with that understanding that I appreciate the role that you and I each play in the partnership to your child achieving the goals set forth for him or her.  

    I have very high expectations of myself as a teacher as well as of my students and I have always found that to be a formula for success!  I want this to be an enjoyable year for all of my students but also a productive, challenging, and encouraging year.

    My main objective in writing this letter is to get to know my students.  If you could please take a moment to fill out the attached form about your child. This form would be immensely helpful,  since making your child feel comfortable in our classroom is a major part of his or her success as a student, as well as mine as a teacher.  I thank you in advance for taking the time to write to me.  In addition to this letter, if you have any other concerns, please feel free to contact me. Communication is a huge part of your child’s success.  If you have any questions/concerns, you can contact me on Class Dojo or email me at jonesmel@orange.k12.nj.us.

    Once again, welcome to the new school year!  I know that, together, we can make this a wonderful school year!

    Educationally Yours,

    Ms. Jones
