Welcome To The Catalpa Room
It's School Year 2019-2020!
Dear Catalpa Families,
My name is Sybil Shelton-Ford (Mrs. Sybil) and I will be your child’s PPK teacher this year. If you are a parent of a kindergarten student, your child’s afternoon teacher will be sending a separate correspondence welcoming you to their environment. I feel so grateful that you will be part of the Catalpa room family and I look forward to working with all of you.
This year I will once again be joined by two amazing paraprofessional assistants - Miss Sarah Padilla and Mrs. Julie Smith-Baldwin. We are so excited that Miss Sarah is expecting a baby this September. While she is on maternity leave, we will have a guest parapro joining up. I will keep you updated on who will be joining us as soon as I am able.
Hopefully you received a list of supplies this summer. In case a list did not make it to your door, your child will need to bring the following to school:
*A healthy snack to be brought to school each day (please label the containers, as we get duplicates from time to time)*
Two complete changes of clothing (please send them in a labeled plastic bag)
Backpack to carry items to and from school
Simple slippers, “crocs” or other shoes to be worn indoors (indoor shoes)
Kindergarten students will need a pair of headphones for their computer devices
Gym shoes for gym days (preschool students will enjoy gym class bi-weekly)
“Bleach” or disinfectant wipes (2 containers)
2 boxes of kleenex
Wish List Items (not necessary - just little wishes)
1 box of crayons (per child)
1 box of washable markers (per child)
Dry erase markers (thin and thick)
Crayola watercolor paints
Small liquid glue in bottles - Elmer’s or other brand
What We DO NOT Need (we have plenty!)
Thank you in advance! This year will be awesome!
