Welcome Back Information

Dear First and Second Grade Friends and Families,                              August 29, 2017

Welcome back and into another exciting school year!  I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing summer.  I am looking forward to getting to know my new students!  

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Sharon Ricker and I will be your child’s first or second grade teacher this school year.  This is my sixth year teaching! I am looking forward to exploring many new things with your child!  I have previously worked at SCS in grades 2, 3, and 4.  I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education.  Your child’s success in my classroom is my number one priority.   

My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different way.  One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work alongside with them to maximize it.  I believe in hands-on experiences and learning creatively.   My goal is to create a comfortable, student-oriented learning environment where all students can be successful.

During our first week of school, we will be spending time going over classroom procedures and getting to know each other.  During this time I will not be assigning homework.  Most weeks I will send home a practice sheet that will be due on Friday.  Some weeks the worksheet will be divided up by each day, but students many complete it in whatever order suits their needs.  Other weeks the homework may be a different type of practice sheet or a game to play with a family member.  I will also be sending home books for your child to read each night.

As many of you know communication between home and school is very important.  The agenda is one way that we can keep this communication open.  I will check these daily and ask that you do the same.  I will also be making periodic calls to let you know how your child is doing.  If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at school; 246-7082 or by email; sricker@scs.sau7.org

                                                                                  Thank you,

                                                                                  Sharon Ricker
