Dear Parents/Guardians,

I consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to work with you and your child this year. I am committed to working towards your child’s success in school, as well as in life. My expectations and goals are always high, but I do allow for individual needs and differences. I look forward to a great year.

I want this to be a successful school year for you and your child. To ensure this success, it is important that we maintain open communication. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

To maintain an appropriate learning environment, I have established certain classroom rules and guidelines. To encourage students to follow the rules, I will recognize appropriate behavior with various types of reinforcement. If students choose to break the rules, I have established an escalating series of responses ranging from gentle prompts and reminders, to the use of logical consequences, and to detention. We have discussed the rules, reinforcements, and consequences in class. As I mentioned above, my goal is to ensure success for your child. Working together, I am confident that it will be an enjoyable and productive school year.

I look forward to meeting you and hearing your comments. Together we can help your child reach his/her fullest potential this year.

Mrs. Lorenz
