Dear Henry Mayfield Elementary 5th grade Families,
My name is Jolanda Keeby and I will be your child’s Reading and ELA teacher this year. This is my first year teaching fifth grade, Reading and Language Arts but my sophomore year at Henry L. Mayfield Elementary. I am looking forward to an exciting and productive year with your child.
I wish to welcome you and your child to the exciting world of 5th grade. This adventure you and your child are about to begin will be stimutlating, demanding, and fulfilling. I will help your child discover their possibilities. Your child will be encouraged to learn and flourish in a safe and dynamic educational environment. Your child will have the freedom to experiment, explore, seek, and question. He or she will succeed without fear.
Have your child arrive to school on time, ready, and able to learn. A happy, well-rested child will meet the exciting challenges of school each day. Let your child know that their learning is exciting and wonderful and I promise to provide a stimulating, educational experience. I will do my best to make sure that each student develops academically, socially, and emotionally. The classroom will be structured so that each child can achieve his or her highest potential.
Finally, I am looking forward to an excellent school year. Please know that I am here to help you and your child in any way. 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 if necessary before school to conference in person or via phone with you between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and Wednesday and Thursday 4:10 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at 985-643-5693 or firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions or concerns during the year. Let the journey begin...
