    Dear Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s):


    I want your child to enjoy coming to school each and every day , whether it be in person or a virtual setting.  I want to make your child’s classroom environment a pleasant one, filled with rich experiences, challenging projects, loads of achievements, and lasting friendships.


    In order to accomplish this task, I feel it is particularly important to develop and maintain a year of classroom involvement with you.  You will be the first to know whether your child is enjoying school, whether your child needs special attention in a specific subject or whether your child’s relationship with a friend is affecting their academic development.  My commitment to your child is genuine and our interaction is essential to your child’s education - both academically and behaviorally.


    It is important for us to build a strong relationship with one another for several reasons.  Some of the most important are:

    -To motivate your child

    -To build self-esteem in your child

    -To reach common goals together

    -To work through difficulties that may arise

    -To see that your child enjoys the mental, physical, and social activities at school

    -To see that your child reaches personal fulfillment

    -To nurture and support your child

    -To see that your child learns and becomes more responsible


    Thank you for your cooperation and for your involvement.  I look forward to getting to know you and working together in the best interest of your child.  If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please contact me by note, email (varlmi@centennialsd.org), and/or school telephone.
