One system I use to reward good choices and positive behavior is putting a marble in a jar. I say you can make your M.A.R.K. I say this because Leaders at Hambright make their M.A.R.K.

Make good choices

Act kindly

Respect yourself and others

Keep being your best.  

When we reach the line we vote on which “prize” we would like. Today we ate popsicles as a prize. There are some pictures below.

I have already received a lot of donations for Apple Day. Thank you so much. your generosity is very much appreciated. If want to help in the classroom you will need clearances. Please let me know if you need the more information about getting this done. Once you complete it, it will be good for a total of five years.

Please check folders every school night. Remove papers that can stay at home and return anything that needs returned to school. Please place the folders back in the backpacks so that your child has the folder in school the next day.

Today you will find sign ups for Apple Day in the folder. You do need clearances in order to help in the classroom. If you need more information about clearances please let me know. I am also collecting donations so I can buy 3 different types of apples. Thanks in advance for your support.

Also in the folders is information to sign up to receive activities through Seesaw. We would use this in case of remote learning. Please sign on as soon as possible. That way if there is any problems we can correct them now.

As always contact me with any questions.

Off to a great start

Our second week is off to a great start. I was pleasantly surprised at how much everyone remembered from last week, it seems like ages ago.

Please remember if there is a change in your child’s transportation on any day you must send in a note. It is extremely important to us that we safely dismiss your child. It becomes challenging to do that if we are not informed. Please send a note for any change in routine dismissal.

Thursday night is Rita’s night. Free Rita’s water ice for Hambright students! More information can be found here. I will be serving from 7:30-8:00. I know that is a little late for kindergarten but I hope some of you are able to come out.

This Friday September, 10 make sure to wear your Kindergarten Crew Tee shirt. If you haven’t turned in your kindergarten readiness handbook there is still time to do it and get your tee shirt. I have handed out tee shirts to everyone who has handed in a readiness handbook up to today.

It Has Been Wonderful!

I have loved being with your children the last two days. It is so much fun to get to know them and work with them. A newsletter did go home in folders today. Please take a look at it. This will probably be the only newsletter I will send home.

Over the next week or so I will be inviting you to join an online platform called Seesaw. Many of you might be familiar with it if you have another child in grades 1-3. We have this platform in case we have to do any type of remote learning. It is also an excellent way to communicate with me, so please feel free to send me messaged through Seesaw once you have joined.

Tomorrow night (Thursday, September 1) is Back to School Night. You can get all the details right here. There will be a Book Fair during this time as well.

The following links are the final 2 readiness lessons we did here at Hambright:


As always if there are any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Just three more days

It is hard to believe that the first day of school is just 3 days away. I’ve attached a picture of our Kindergarten Crew. We are looking forward to seeing you on Monday. Miss Rivera and I will be waiting at the front doors to greet you and guide you to our classroom.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions
