Hello and Welcome to our beautiful newly renovated Bob Hope Elementary. I wanted to take an opportunity to introduce myself and begin to give you some important information regarding our classroom procedures and expectations.
My name is Ms. Elsa D.Sanchez-Quintanilla and this is my 28th year in elementary education. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade. I also have credentialing as a Master Degree in Bilingual Education, and Master Degree Counseling and Guidance.
The success of all my students is my primary focus throughout the year. That can only be accomplished with a strong partnership with parents and families. Communication is vital for that success to continue. Please contact me anytime at 210-927-8180-the main number for Bob Hope Elementary. Also, my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
. I will try to contact you that same day or by the following day for sure. The children will be taking home their homework/behavior folder each day. It “MUST” be signed daily to acknowledge that you have seen it and are aware of what is happening in our class. Please look for our weekly newsletter. It will contain a lot of information about what our class is doing and important upcoming events. The homework folder is an important link between the school and parents. Special care must be taken to assure its safe return to school each day. If it should be lost, it will be replaced with a different cover for the papers. As we progress through the school year, please be aware that your child’s school supplies will need to be replaced as they run out. I will send home notices in sufficient time for those supplies to be up-dated.
Please look for notices to be coming home regularly regarding your
child’s progress, i.e. progress reports and informational notes. Please use the Behavior Folder to communicate with me as well as the e-mail and telephone. The Behavior Folder is a direct way to reach me each day. PLEASE include a phone number in your note or telephone call. I am looking forward to this school year.
Sincerely, Ms. Elsa D. Sanchez-Q.
