Week 1: Welcome to Kindergarten!

Hello Families of Room 104,

I am so happy to welcome you to Room 104. Each week I will update this blog with the week’s specials, sight words, events, and what we are focusing on in our classroom. This first week we will be focusing on building classroom routines, procedures, and getting to know each other. I will ask that on the first day please send your student with a small object that begins with the letter A. For example, an apple, ambulance car, ant toy, etc.)

Our specials for this week are: Tuesday – World Language, Wednesday – Gym, Thursday – World Language and Library, Friday – Art.

This week I will be sending home many important forms to fill out and info sheets to read. A few that I want to highlight are: Classroom Dojo sign up code, Kindergarten Info flip book, CPS School forms, ABC Bootcamp info sheet, classroom calendar and newsletter, and the monthly project ‘All About Me’ book page. Please see all due dates listed in the calendar.

For the first day please come early as Mr. Mason will host a back to school prep rally. I will be checking students in by my door (Door 3 by the playground). I will be taking in school supplies and I have set up first day pictures for the morning. I will invite students inside at 8:45, at this time parents will give their last goodbyes. No parents will be able to enter the classroom once the school day has started.

I will ask all parents to sign their students out at dismissal. If your student will be taking the bus please double check with the office that they are routed. If someone that is not the listed parent picking up your student always communicate their name and have them bring their I.D. for me to check for sign out.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out. My email is vmelanson@cps.edu.

Let’s have an amazing week!


Ms. M
