Dear Parents, Grandparents, & Family,
My name is Nicole Battle and I will be your child’s 3rd/4th grade Math and Science teacher for the 2017/2018 school year.
I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I have lived most of my life here in Texas. I am an EC-6th Generalist, ESL and Special Education Teacher. I have over ten years teaching experience. My main objective is student success. I am delighted to have your child in my class this year. I am looking forward to a very successful year and I know you are too. I have high expectations for your child and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations!
So what in the world is a Star Book? The S.T.A.R. Book is a three ring binder that your child will use every day. Star is an acronym for Students Taking Academic Responsibility. The purpose is to aid in the development of organizational skills and foster responsibility. Third and Fourth grade are transitional years, and it is important to keep the line of communication between home and school open. This book is a way of helping your child become accountable for those communications. Please check your child's S.T.A.R. Book each and every day.
The front pocket in the S.T.A.R. Book will be used for homework. This pocket will contain any homework that is assigned during the week. Completed homework should be returned to school in the same pocket. Please check this section daily. Each child will bring home an assignment book. Please sign your child's assignment book nightly, after you have checked their homework for completion.
I have many exciting math and science activities planned this year. Please take a few moments to write me a letter about your child. Include things that might be important for me to know as well as your hopes, goals and expectations for the coming year. I look forward to working alongside you this year to help your child grow!
