A Note From Our Resource Teachers:

SPECIAL EDUCATION CLASSROOMS (RESOURCE ROOMS) ARE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS WITHIN OUR SCHOOL THAT INCLUDE A VARIETY OF DIVERSE LEARNERS. REGARDLESS OF GRADE LEVEL, THESE STUDENTS REQUIRE A STRUCTURED PLAN AND A MULTITUDE OF STRATEGIES THAT MEET THEIR LEARNING STYLES.  WE TEACHERS OF PINEVILLE ELEMENTARY SPECIAL EDUCATION CLASSROOMS ASK PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, AND GUARDIANS OF OUR STUDENTS TO PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE DO OUR BEST TO MEET ALL OF THEIR LEARNING NEEDS DURING EACH SCHOOL DAY.  WE SUPPLY NEEDED MATERIALS FOR THEM, SUCH AS PAPER AND PENCILS, FOLDERS, AND OTHER THINGS THAT ARE NECESSARY FOR THEIR DAILY WORK. THEY MAY ALSO BRING THEIR OWN ITEMS, SUCH AS PENCIL BOXES OR CASES, GLUE STICKS, SCISSORS, ERASERS, ETC.  SOME PARENTS BRING US TISSUES, HAND SANITIZERS, AND CLOROX WIPES, WHICH ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED.  WE HOPE THIS CONTINUES!!  CRAFT ITEMS ARE NEEDED, ESPECIALLY FOR THE HOLIDAYS. DONATIONS WOULD BE WONDERFUL.

HOMEWORK IS GIVEN TO OUR STUDENTS!! THIS MAY BE GIVEN FOR BOTH ELA AND MATHEMATICS.  IT IS GIVEN FOR SEVERAL REASONS.  THIS IS MAINLY FOR PRACTICING A SKILL, WHICH WE HAVE COVERED IN OUR INSTRUCTIONAL TIME, AND/OR FOR READING OR MATH PRACTICE.  A READING SLIP IS USUALLY GIVEN FOR A PARENT OR GUARDIAN SIGNATURE.  WE HAVE REWARDS AND INCENTIVES FOR THEIR RETURN.  HOMEWORK IS SOMETHING THAT ALSO TEACHES SELF-DISCIPLINE AND RESPONSIBILITY.  PLEASE ASK YOUR CHILD IF THEY HAVE HOMEWORK AND GIVE A STRUCTURED TIME TO SEE THAT IT IS COMPLETED AND RETURNED.  WE WANT OUR STUDENTS TO ACHIEVE, AND THIS ADDED WORK IS VALUABLE!

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO A WONDERFUL 2018 – 2019 SCHOOL TERM!  LET’S WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE OUR STUDENTS EXCITED ABOUT EDUCATION AND SUCCESS IN ALL THEY DO!

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL YOUR CHILD’S TEACHER THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. OUR SCHEDULES WILL INCLUDE A PLANNING TIME THAT YOU MAY CALL WITH ANY COMMENTS OR CONCERNS.  THIS WILL BE POSTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  WE ARE EXCITED TO BEGIN THE SCHOOL YEAR WITH YOUR CHILD!!!

OUR SCHOOL TELEPHONE NUMBER IS 304-732-7966. THANK YOU!
