Dear Parents,

          Starting in January, I will be requiring that your child type up one of their weekly journals.  They have the option of doing this on Tuesday’s or Friday’s assignment.  If they want to, they could type up both journals.

          Typing up a journal will give your child practice getting familiar with the keyboard.  This practice is needed when your child takes the SBAC test in 2016 because they will be required to type out their answers.

          Please send me a note if you do not have access to a computer at home.  Also, if you do not have a printer, you may email me your child’s journal and I will print it out for them. My email is jzaremski@stamfordct.gov

          Thank you for all you do for your child’s education.  Have a happy and healthy holiday season.

 

 

Mr. Zaremski

 Queridos Padres,            

A partir de enero, voy a exigir que su hijo escriba una de sus revistas semanales. Ellos tienen la opción de hacerlo en los martes de o asignación del viernes. Si quiere, pueden escribir las dos revistas. 

           

Al escribir un diario le dará a su hijo a practicar familiarizarse con el teclado. Se necesita esta práctica cuando su hijo/a toma la prueba SBAC en el año 2016, ya que tendrán que escribir sus respuestas.

            

Por favor envíeme una nota si usted no tiene acceso a una computadora en casa. Además, si usted no tiene una impresora, puede enviarme un correo electrónico diario de su hijo/a y yo le imprimirlo para ellos.

 

 

Mi correo electrónico es jzaremski@stamfordct.gov Gracias por todo lo que hacen para la educación de su hijo/a. Que tengan unas felices y saludables vacaciones.  

 

Sr. Zaremski

 

 

 

 

 

November 2015
Dear Parents,
Starting Thursday, November 5th, I will be available to help your child with the 5th grade math concepts.   I will be offering help in the mornings from 7:30 to 7:50 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Any child may come to me on those mornings if she or he needs some help.   You will have to provide the transportation to the school.  No reservations are needed!!
I hope this extra time will help your child if he or she is struggling in math.  Thank you for your continued support in your child’s education.
Mr. Zaremski
