Thank you

Thank you to those who came out to parent teacher conferences last week. If you need something, please don't hesitate to email me and I will get back to you.

This week is a normal one here at Leigh. We will be on a regular schedule into our usual routines.

Don't forget to practice math facts with your student and to read with them each night.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season with their families. As we get up and going again, it is important to know that January 15th ends the second quarter. These next two weeks will be important to get homework turned in and staying on top of their work. 

Both 4th and 5th grade are wrapping up chapters on fractions. 4th grade will have their test at the end of this week and 5th grade will have theirs next week. 

Feel free to email me with any questions!

Stay warm and have a great day

Welcome Back!

Welcome back from Thanksgiving Break!


I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with their families. This week we are getting back into the swing of things. Santa's Workshop will be this Thursday and Friday where students have the opportunity to buy Christmas gifts for their families. We encouraged the children to do some work around the house to earn their money to spend on gifts. Mid quarter progress reports are due this Friday, time sure is flying by!

We only have three weeks until Christmas break. These last couple weeks of the quarter will be busy. Students should continue to practice their reading at home and completing projects/homework.

Successful Pride Night

Last night was Pride Night at Ridgewood High School and I was so happy to see so many students join in on the fun. I had a great time face painting so many happy faces last night! 

It is hard to believe we are already wrapping up our third full week of school. The students are continuing to establish their routines and it is important to start off the year with a strong foot.

Please encourage your children to continue to practice their math facts and reading. It is important to continue to build this foundation so they are successful this school year.

Thank you and let me know if you have any questions

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

It was a great week here at Leigh! We had Curriculum Night on Wednesday and it was wonderful to meet some of the parents.

The 5th graders have been working on different kinds of properties in math along with some multiplication and division. They are reading the book, Bunnicula, in class and seem to really enjoy it!

The 4th graders have been working on place value, rounding, and expanding numbers. They are beginning to work on personal and persuasive essays.

The 3rd graders have been working on personal narratives in class.

It has been a busy week and I think the students will enjoy the long weekend ahead!

Enjoy the nice weather and we will see you back on Tuesday.

Welcome Tigers!

Hello and welcome back!

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer spent with family and friends. Our first day of student attendance was yesterday and all of the students were very excited to be back at Leigh! Like the students, I was very excited to be back at Leigh. Some of you may know that I began working at Leigh after Spring Break last school year. I began to work with some of the students I would see this school year which I enjoyed. I can't wait to begin my first full year of being a Special Education Teacher.
