Ms. Bailey's Boombox was stolen from her classroom after school hours a
few weeks ago. The Boombox is an important part of her education program.
The machine has a combination CD Player, Dual Cassette player/recorder.
The recorder has the capacity to record one tape to another and an AM/FM
radio with a microphone jack. The machine also has the capacity to
isolate tracks. As you can tell this is an expensive piece of equipment,
if you have any idea who has it or you know someone that can donate a
replacement please call the school office at 933-5350.

fun for everyone that was able to attend.
The following suggestions are meant to help parents support their child's
Again, communicate concerns/questions to your child's teacher. Most
parents feel uncomfortable doing this, but teachers are not mind readers,
and they truly welcome your feedback.
Provide a regular time for homework. Short periods of concentration are
better than long periods of messing around." You and your child can
decide together about the best time. After dinner and before television
is often a good time. Consistency is the key.
- Provide a place for students to work with minimal distractions and needed
materials (paper, pencil, ruler, dictionary, etc.). This can be as simple
as the kitchen table with a box for school supplies.
- Reward children for doing their job. This can be praise, watching
television, playing a game with you, etc. Remember, they get tired too,
and learning is not always easy.
- Stop when children get frustrated. The most important thing is to make
learning and school work a positive experience.
Thank you for helping be a partner with us in your child's education!
