ECDD Program


Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!!
    We are very excited to begin another school year at Allen Elementary. We will be using a daily check sheet for communication this year. It will be sent home daily, and will include a small section for any comments that we have. Please feel free to respond on the back of the paper and send it back to us as well. I know that the beginning of the year can be hectic and a quick note can be helpful, especially for our newcomers.  I also strongly recommend that you check the website regularly, and the Shutterfly emails!. All of the monthly letters and event notices will be posted on the Web Site, and the Calendar updates and pictures will be sent through Shutterfly. 
If you have not yet received a Shutterfly email with a reminder for the Open House, please let us know. Throughout the year there will be plenty of pictures for you to look at and print if you'd like!!! Reminders for trips and events will come through Shutterfly as well.

Looking Ahead

Throughout September we will be working on an "All About Me" unit as well as assessing cognitive, academic, and other developmental skills. Our main goal at this time, however, is to allow the children to become comfortable with school routines and meeting new people. It is an important process, and we will achieve these goals through exploration and PLAY!!! In the future, monthly notes will include books of focus (ex. Brown Bear, Brown Bear in September) themes, letters, and other specific skills we will be working on as a group.
The monthly letters and as well as other information will be available on my teacher website.  

We are looking forward to a new and fantastic year.
Thank you,
Mrs. Ritchie & Ms. Dar
