It is with pleasure that I welcome you and your child to my class. We can all look forward to a very exciting school year. I am Mrs. Candice Long, a first grade teacher here at Beecher Hills Elementary. I have been teaching with Atlanta Public Schools for 21 years and at Beecher for twelve of those years. I have taught first and second grades my whole teaching career. I am really looking forward to having a great year of learning with your children!!! I want to thank you in advance for your support and cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com. In order to provide my students with the excellent educational climate they deserve, we have developed the following Essential Agreements that will be in effect throughout the school year.
Beecher has also developed a system for collecting "Bee" Points that is reinforced daily in the classroom and rewarded on Fridays. Your child can earn a "Bee" Point daily by :1. Being present and on-time, 2. Completing homework and returning important forms, 3. Being focused and on-task, 4. Respectful behavior, and 5. Wearing uniforms. Any student who has earned at least 23 out of 25 points by the end of the week will be rewarded.
