A Message from Ms. Turkiewicz

Welcome to Miss Turkiewicz’s Class!! 

Please use this website as a source of updates and school news. In the month of September, we will be reviewing our rules and routines of the classroom and make sure that all of the students are comfortable in our learning environment. We will also begin introducing the Tools Of The Mind Curriculum and studying about families and homes.

More information to come…

welcome back

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! My name is Miss Turkiewicz, and I will be your child’s teacher this school year. The paraprofessionals in our class this year are, Mrs. Pagano and Mrs. C. Our primary goals are to work as a team to create a caring community of learners in order to enhance their learning and development by assessing learning and progress. This will be achieved by using each individual's IEP goals to guide teaching by using a variety of approaches, such as small and large group lessons using curriculums such as, Tools of the Mind, Fundations, and Touch Math. We will strive to establish reciprocal relationships with each child. I have planned a number of stimulating hands on activities to begin the school year and I am excited to begin working together!

Each day, I will send home a daily sheet home indicating the activities and goals your child has worked on during that school day. The daily sheet can help enable conversation at home about your child’s school day while keeping you in the loop on a regular basis. It would be helpful if you emailed me a short introduction about your child before the school year begins, in order for us to get to know him/her better (i.e. favorite toys, likes, dislikes, and daily behaviors). A folder will be sent home everyday so that notices, absent notes, and any other paper work, or student work can be sent back and forth regularly and neatly. Please keep this folder inside your child’s backpack and empty it on a daily basis. Please send 1 complete set of clothing in a clear plastic bag that is labeled with your child’s name to keep in school.  Since this is a full day program, a healthy snack and lunch is highly recommended everyday. Please notify me of any food allergies or restrictions.

I intend to establish positive and personal relationships with every child and family. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone during conference hours or via email. I know we will have a positive and enjoyable year together and look forward to meeting you at the Open House on Tuesday, September 5th at 4:00.
