• Dear Parents, Guardians, Families, and Friends,
    Welcome Back! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with
    you and your child this year as we embark upon a time of collaborative
    learning. As we work together, I endeavor to facilitate collaborative and
    independent learning opportunities within our educational community. In
    our classroom setting, I hope to help foster and enhance self-motivation
    and independence in each student. I look forward to what I know is going to
    be a successful year and to working with you and your child. Working
    together is key to this success.
    To help us get started on our learning path this school year, I have
    requested the support of Russell “Rusty” Fuller as I recover from a medical
    procedure I had over the summer. Rusty, who is familiar with most of the
    children in the class and the grade level teaching team, will support our
    class as guest teacher until the end of October. At that point, I should be
    fully recovered and ready to join the journey. Here’s to a great school year!

    Preferred method of contact: Email - bulleysimpsons@aaps.k12.mi.us

    Attendance – The official start of the school day is 8:15am and the end is
    3:18pm. (Students can enter the class at 8:10am.) Attendance is taken
    after 8:20am.
    Curriculum – While I plan to use multiple sources that effectively enhance
    instruction and provide learning goals, I will base the scope and sequence
    on the curriculum chosen for the school, school district, and projects based
    on my expertise in each of the subject areas. (Bridges Math, MAISA for
    ELA, Science, and Social Studies, etc.) We will also incorporate time for
    project based learning for students to engage in learning topics of their
    choosing, independently or with partners and small groups.
    Materials – Students could benefit from the following materials for in-class
    Folders for paper pencil assignments (4)
    2 Spiral notebooks to use as they deem fit to support class work.
    Loose leaf wide-ruled paper for submitted writing assignments.
    Below are some items that some students consider helpful but that are not
    required to be purchased (These are also provided for class use in school.)
    Dry erase board and markers
