Communication

  •      Communication between school and home is an important tool for your child’s education.  This website is updated weekly and as needed and contains information about curriculum, classroom events, and other important information.  In order to save us both valuable time, please check this website for answers to questions you may have before contacting me.  I have based the contents of my webpage on 22 years worth of parent questions, so most answers should be there!

         Students have a progress binder.  In the binder will be information about goals, behavior, and progress along with needed resources.  Students will be responsible for keeping their binder up to date and for making sure that they go home every Friday and come back every Monday.  Please look closely at the binders when they come home.  They will be the main communication tool between school and home.  

         Students also have a planner.  They will record important dates, learning targets, and assignments in their planner.  They will also indicate the completion of assignments so that they can keep track of what they need to complete at home for the next day.  Planners should come home everyday.

         I am happy to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.  The best way to contact me is by email.  I check it regularly, except for during the instructional day, and I am really good at responding right away.  My email address is graceyb@aaps.k12.mi.us.  If you need to get timely information to me during the instructional day, please contact the office to get a message to me as I am not always able to check my email during this time.  If your question or concern is not possible to communicate by email, please contact me by email to set up an appointment.
