Welcome Letter

Hello Kindergarten Families. My name is Melissa Bloomberg. I have been teaching for 25 years and a member of the School 5 staff for 23 years.  I have enjoyed teaching 3rd grade, 1st grade, and Pre-K.  I am excited to continue my teaching journey as part of the Kindergarten team. I am so excited to begin the 2023-2024 school year with all of you. I know it will be an adjustment back into the classroom and a new experience for many, but this year is going to be amazing and your children are going to thrive and "Reach for the Stars!" I know you and your child may be feeling a little nervous and unsure, but I promise it will be ok. We will work together to make this an exciting, productive and fun learning experience. I will be here to assist you anyway I can. I am looking forward to getting to know your child and working together with all of you!

 Communication is Key

I am sure there will be many questions and concerns along the way.  Therefore, it is so important we keep in touch and communicate with one another. I will mainly begin communicating through email and notes.  I will also be using this webpage as a way to communicate and keep you informed of our curriculum and daily activities. So, please visit often for updates. This year we will be using the Clever portal to access learning apps including Seesaw (learning Activities) , Benchmark Advanced (reading program), and many more fun educational programs. There is more information regarding Clever in the red box to the left.

***Homework will be assigned Monday - Thursday on Benchmark and iReady as well as pencil and paper activities.  Homework folders should be returned daily and all assignments should be completed on time.  Homework folders need to be emptied out daily and returned the next day. 

We will continue to use Clever.  To log onto Clever please use your child's ID number@yonkerspublicschools.org  for the username and their birthday (mm/dd/yyyy) for the password. You can also scan the badge that I will send home.

 

 

**Please click on the iReady icon on Clever for your child to practice math skills on their individual level.

*** Homework folders should be returned daily and all assignments should be completed on time.  Homework folders needs to be emptied out daily and returned the next day. 
 
If your child needs to quarantine, they will be able to access Clever each day for their assignments. They can log onto iREADY, IXL and the SmartyAnts app. All of these learning platforms are individualized and will allow your child to review necessary skills at their own pace. Please also have them visit Seesaw for a review of lessons and homework.  Thank you!
 
Reminder: Any student returning to school following an illness-related absence MUST provide clearance to the school nurse prior to returning.
