Weekly Overview 9/2-9/6

Dear Ray Families,


Welcome to a new school year and welcome to fifth grade!

My name is Ms. Krecik and I will be your child’s 5th grade teacher this year.  I am delighted to have your child in my class.  I have high expectations for your child, and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations.

This is my thirteenth year teaching at Ray School.  I hold a bachelor’s degree in Dance and a Master’s degree in Education, both from Columbia College in Chicago, IL.  As a result, expect your child to have an experience this year that is both creative and academically challenging.

I want you to know that one of my most important goals this year is to keep the lines of communication open with you. I am available most mornings to talk with you between 10:00 and 10:45 am. Please schedule a conference by contacting me via email through ClassDojo or you may email me at agkrecik@cps.edu.

Every week I will do my best to post updated homework assignments, as well as any reminders for the week(s) ahead.  Please sign up for Classdojo, as I use it as my most immediate form of contact.

Here are some announcements for Week 1:

  • PLEASE sign up for ClassDojo, either on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.  ClassDojo is how I will send weekly updates and announcements throughout the week.  I will send a signup sheet this week for those of you not yet signed up.
  • The class fee is $85.  Please remit payment as soon as you can.  This allows us to order class texts, supplies, and pay for online programs.  You can even pay online!                       Here is the link: http://rayschool.weebly.com/student-fees.html Please go through and fill out all necessary forms in the ‘Welcome Back’ packet that were sent home on the first day of school.
  • Don’t forget the join the PTO! Ray’s PTO is  a vital part of our school culture, and your membership will immediately affect your child’s classroom.  The PTO provides funding to classrooms, special programs, as well as field trip supports.  We love out PTO <3
