Radford City Schools

Welcome to Mrs. Luckett's Class!

I am so pleased to have your child in our class this year!  I am looking forward to an enjoyable, productive year.

 

The following is a list of information you will need to know before we start our year.

 

* I will keep you informed weekly with a Monday Folder and send home a progress report for you to review and return on Tuesdays.

 

*Each day, your child will bring home a Take Home Folder with any homework, notices, etc.  The Take Home Folders need to go home/come back to school every day.

 

*We will have a daily snack time around 10:00am-ish to “re-energize”.  Snack time is optional for your child, but if you decide to take advantage, please be sure to send something healthy each day.

 

*For use of the Chromebooks, we are asking parents to please send in earbuds or lightweight headphones (we have noticed most children prefer the headphones over earbuds).  These will be kept at school.

 

*Our class will use the following items throughout the year.  If you are able to send in these items to help out at any time, it will be greatly appreciated! We do many STEM activities and use up items quickly. Items in bold are used on a daily basis and need to be replenished often.

If just 25% of U.S. families used 10 fewer plastic bags a month, we would save over 2.5 BILLION bags a year.
