Weekly Update

Week 1 Update

Thank you for sharing your kindergartners with me! We had a fantastic first week getting to know each other and learning more about our classroom. Together we established our school family, learned about routines and rituals, and practiced a few fun songs. Ask your first grader about Here Is a Bunny! ūüôā

This week we also learned about our Safe Keeper commitment:¬†It is my (Mrs. Copp’s) job to keep you safe. Your (student’s) job is to help keep it that way.¬†¬†We will make this promise each day when we place our Safe Keeper sticks into our special box.









  • Please continue to send in a healthy snack every day with your child.¬† We will take a break around 10:15 to eat before heading out to recess.¬† It would be helpful if your child’s snack is separate from their lunch so they can distinguish between the two.¬† Sometimes desserts sneak out of those lunch boxes during snack time – we will save those for later!¬† ūüôā
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the blog to find links to district calendars, Beverly bell schedules and calendar, and class lunch and specials schedules.
  • Dismissal can be a busy time of day for kindergartners. ¬†In order to ensure your child’s safety I must know of their daily dismissal plans. ¬†Please notify me by email (ccopp@birmingham.k12.mi.us)¬†if your child’s dismissal plans will differ from those on their green Dismissal Form.¬†¬†I will always respond with a quick “Thanks!” or “Got it!” to let you know I received your message. ¬†If I am out of the building or you do not receive a response from me by 3:00 pm please email Ms. Johnson, our office manager, at ljohnson@birmingham.k12.mi.us¬†or call the office at (248) 203-3150. ¬†Thank you for helping to make dismissal go as smoothly as possible for our kindergartners!

Please email me before 8:30 am on Tuesday (Sunday or Monday are even better!) if your child would like to buy pizza on Wednesday. Please include your child’s name and the desired # of cheese or pepperoni slices.
