Welcome letter

                My name is Miss Sarah Powers and I will be your child’s teacher for September and October for the SKIP program at Gillette School while Katie Castro is on Maternity leave.  I am eagerly looking forward to working with and learning with your child, and I hope that you are too!  Throughout the school year we will be doing many hands-on learning activities, while using a multi-sensory approach to learning. 

            I would appreciate it if you would send the following items to school with your child: a complete change of clothes (pants, shirt, socks, underwear) in a clearly labeled Ziplock  bag for us to keep in the classroom, and a picture of your child for our bulletin board.  Also, it is important that your child brings a backpack to school each day, as well as a snack and drink for him/her to have at snack time.  Your child will be given a folder that is to be brought to school each day in order for notices and other papers to be sent home.  You may also use this folder to send in anything that is necessary.  Also, please inform me as soon as possible as to whether your child has any dietary restrictions or food allergies such as peanut butter, milk, fruit, etc.  This is extremely important, as we will be doing some cooking activities in the classroom.  Thank you for your cooperation!

I hope that everyone is enjoying the summer, and I look forward to seeing you in school.  If you have any questions or information that you may want to share with me, please feel free to call me at school at (908) 647-2313, extension 1016 or email me at Spowers@longhill.org
