Dear Students and Families,
Hello! I hope you are having a fun and restful summer! My name is Mrs. Ardery and I will be your teacher this year!
I have had a great summer but I am ready to get back into this school year. I am super excited about this 5th grade year. There will be a lot of things happening this year. We will be participating in DARE, 4H, guidance, and world languages. Not to mention all the stuff I get to teach you!
Now let me tell you a little about myself. This will be my 13th year at Warner, I have taught all grades except 1st. I used to think 4th grade was the best but after a few years in 5th I have changed my mind. I love the independence and the maturity level of this age. I LOVE NASCAR! And I support Jimmie Johnson 100% J I love to read but I did not get to read as much as I wanted to this summer. I love my family, my husband Chris is a merchandiser, I have a 16 year old stepson named Chase and my baby is 11 months old- her name is Quinn J We also have 2 dogs, Dixie and Shiloh. I talk about my family a lot so it might seem like they are in class with us! We will have another teacher working with us some this year, Ms. Donaldson. Ms. Donaldson has a cat named Stanley that she loves a lot, plus I know some of you had her as a teacher in 4th grade as well.
Enclosed with this letter you will find a school supply list as well as a “Facebook” profile. I would like for each student to complete the profile and bring it to either Open House or on the first day of school. You can attach or draw a picture of yourself in the box. I can wait to use these as a get to know you activity on the first day of school. Additionally I have created a group on facebook specifically for our class. If your parents are Facebook users they can join this group- I will use this as just another tool to give information out this year. The group will remain open until September 4th at which point it will be closed and visible to members only. Also our class website will be up and running by August 12, 2013. In the meantime if you have any burning questions or needs before school starts you can contact me at Rhiannon.firstname.lastname@example.org. ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR SUMMER!!!!!!!!
I am very excited to start this new school year. I hope everyone will come meet me in room 61 on open house night. Open house is August 12, 2013 from 5:45-7:00 I hope to see you there!
