Welcome, students and families, to the 2020-2021 school year! We are preparing our virtual classrooms for learning together with students as we speak! I am so excited to meet and work with you and your students this year, and even though we are beginning with virtual learning, I know that our class will grow into a lively team that loves learning together and from each other!
My name is Kathy Thornton, grade 3 teacher at Emerson! Connecting with families is the most important way we can bring about academic success for your children! If you have not yet, please accept my texted invitation to join Remind (you should have received it today), a wonderful texting tool many teachers use to easily communicate with families. This is a nice time to make sure your contact information is up to date at school! Thank you in advance for joining me on Remind!
Let's work together to build trusting relationships that make school safe, accepting and compassionate for each of you and your students. I can't wait to get started on September 9!
