    Dear B-5 Families,

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure children can achieve their highest potential. I recognize that in order to be successful in school, students need support from both the home and school. I know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for children’s success and I want you to know that I will do my very best to carry out my responsibilities. I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

    1             attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experiences

    2             completes and returns all homework assignments on time

    3             reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

    4             shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

    5             informs you if (s)he needs additional support in any subject

    6             knows that you expect her/him to succeed in school

    I am delighted to have your child in my class and am looking forward to a very successful year. I have high expectations for your child and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations. I want you to know that one of my most important goals is to keep the lines of communication open with you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at (925) 779-7425 or JulieVerhoek@antiochschools.net if you have any questions or concerns during the year.

    Thank you for your support. I look forward to meeting you.


    Julie Verhoek
