    Teacher will post assignments on teacher website.  There will be one assignment for each subject per day (English Language Arts, Math, & Science).  Students are expected to the complete given assignments by the end of each day.  Most assignments will be completed in the GREEN Homework Journal that was sent home.  Parents are expected to take a picture of the completed work and send in a private message to the teacher on Class DOJO to be assessed by the teacher. 
    I will be posting updates regularly on Class DOJO.  PLEASE be sure to check our "Class Story" on a daily basis, as well as send me photos of your child's completed work in private messages on DOJO.  THANK YOU!

    Welcome to Kindergarten, scholars of Room 5!  My name is Tara Stevens and I'm a Kindergarten teacher here at Rosa Parks Community School.  I have been teaching in Orange for 18 years, and have spent the last 9 of those in Kindergarten.  I look forward to having a successful, rewarding, challenging, and exciting year with your child! 
    This year, I had the privilege of hosting a student teacher from Montclair State University, Miss Coccoz.  She was with us on a daily basis until December and we are happy to have her experienced Kindergarten in our classroom!
    Currently, I am hosting a student teacher from Kean University, Ms. Munoz.  She will be with us on a daily basis until the end of May, and we are happy to have her experience Kindergarten in our classroom as well!
    Parents, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email me any time at:  steventa@orange.k12.nj.us
