CAMPUS VISITOR PROCEDURES

 

  • If you would like to come onto campus during the regular school hours (8:30 - 3:00), you more than likely are assuming the role of a school volunteer - - you have a clear purpose or role you are engaging in with students during this time. Examples include parent facilitators for centers in the classroom, book readers (including "mystery reader"), party helpers, recess and noon duty supervisors, library helpers, art helpers, etc. This also includes chaperones for school sponsored field trips. All volunteers need to have a level 1 clearance through Be a Mentor: http://www.srvusd.net/parents/volunteer
  • Once you have been given level 1 clearance, you are approved to function in the role of volunteer on campus and/or during field trips. When you come to campus in this role, you will need to:
    • Sign the visitor log at the front desk of the office
    • Check in with the front office staff who will verify your level 1 clearance
    • The office staff will provide you with a volunteer badge that needs to be visible at all times while you are on campus. The reason for the visibility is so that students and school employees are assured you have gone through the proper channels for clearance and accountability. When you are finished with your volunteer role, you will sign out at the front desk and return your badge to the office staff.

COMMUNICATION

The best way to get a hold of me is through email. My email address is smoffitt@srvusd.net.   I check it consistently and respond pretty promptly. However, if there is something that needs to be relayed to your child immediately during the day, the direct phone number into the classroom is 855-5330.

NEWS

WELCOME TO A NEW SCHOOL YEAR!!!

 

I can't wait to get to know our class!  These first couple of weeks will be busy with me learning about your child, both academically and personally and your child learning the routines and expectations of 3rd grade.  This will be a great year for your child to develop as a student and as a kid.  It's very important for me to build a class family feel where everyone feels a part of our class team...9 months is a good chunk of time to be together, so I'm hoping that our class can work together in how to resolve problems, talk to each other, and just being aware of everyones' feelings. Kids tend to learn more, when they are happy about going to school. It's going to be a whirlwind at first with beginning of the year assessments, both with reading and writing. I will utilize the first few weeks reading one on one with every child to gage a starting point reading level wise.  That will ensure that we are on the right track with books that are not too easy or too hard.  I try to update my webpage consistently- primarily when a new concept, unit of study, field trip, or any other important info there is to relay to all of you.  I tend to send out all class emails as well, so I am hoping to create a class group with all of your email addresses sooner, rather than later.  

 

Keep in mind, I am a parent of two boys and completely understand different personalities, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses.  I also understand when things happen beyond our control. Keeping open communication is key.  Please don't hesitate to email me whenever about whatever.  

 

I'm so excited to make this a great year!

ABOUT ME

A little bit of info about me:


My educational background includes both an undergraduate degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Sociology and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from California State University, East Bay. My professional background includes teaching in a variety of schools, both public and private and in a variety of grade levels from 1st-5th.  
On a personal note, I grew up in Walnut Creek, but have lived in Danville for the past 14 years with my husband, our two boys, 6th  and 8th graders at Charlotte Wood, and our dogs Daisy and Emmie.  I knew from an early age that I always wanted to be a teacher and I am so fortunate to be able to teach at such a great school.  I can't wait to make this a memorable 3rd Grade year!
