Hello to all students and families,

We would like to welcome you to our classroom for the upcoming school year.  We invite you to join us for a classroom orientation on Friday, August 15 from 1:00 P.M. to 2:00 P.M.  This will be a time to see friends and have a brief meeting on a few classroom items.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind the students entering the third grade about the summer reading requirements. Please refer to the reading list that is attached if needed.

Classroom information packets with more detailed description will be on the students’ desks during orientation or sent home on the first day of school for those who will not be able to attend.

Our traditional sorting ceremony will occur on the first day of classes.  Students will be sorted into “houses” (Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw) as a way to build camaraderie, cooperation and responsibility.  Students can earn house points in a variety of ways, including but not limited to, hard work, classroom citizenship, respect and participation.

We look forward to enjoying our time together as we take on the challenges of education.  Please email Mr. Richard at raslanian@millhopper.com  when you receive this letter so he can put your address on the class email list.  Enjoy the remainder of your summer.

Mr. Richard Aslanian
Ms. Suzi Rumsey
