Dear Students and Parents of the Explorations Classroom,

Welcome to the Explorations classroom website, 2016-2017.

We are heading into a new and exciting school year! Our team is very excited to begin the school year in our new classroom!

Our focus is to learn and grow together as a classroom community. Developing reading, writing, math, language skills, and social skills will be the primary drivers each day in class.


Our Home and School connections are important!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Look for News Letters, SandBox Learning Publication, and Scholastic News in your children's backpacks. This information will help enhance your child's language and reading skills and help you develop ideas. Included weekly are your Read at Home forms to record daily reading with your child. When returned the minutes add up to opportunities to earn a new book, watch a movie in an 'all school' environment, and other on-going opportunities.

I hope you find this website informative and useful at home.

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement, nothing can be done without hope and confidence." -Helen Keller
