Brittany Campbell - Kindergarten  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to Kindergarten! A new school year is here and I am thrilled your child is in my class.
Please be sure to check our classroom website often for important dates, our classroom newsletter, and our TIGER schedule.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email or call me.

{Take Home Folders}
Take Home Folders will come home every day with important notes and completed work. Please check folders each night.

{Purple Fluency Bag}
Every child will have a purple fluency bag that should go between home and school DAILY. We will use the leveled readers inside each day in class and it will be your child's HOMEWORK to read them at home each night. Also in the bag will be math games and activities to practice. They will be switched out every couple of days. These do not need to come back

Our school works on the T-I-G-E-R schedule. Because of this, our specials do not occur every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. Instead, specials will fall on a T, I, G, E, or R day. When we have a day off school, we will not have a letter day.
Here is our classroom’s TIGER Schedule:
T day: P.E.
I day: P.E. & Art
G day: P.E. & Technology
E day: P.E. & ELC
R day: P.E. & Music
Lunch: 11:15-11:35
Recess: 11:35-11:55
We have P.E. every day. Please remember to have your child wear or pack gym shoes.

We are required by Erin's Law to provide lessons on sexual abuse & prevention education. During the weeks of November 12th & January 27th, Grand Prairie Elementary School Social Workers will be teaching a lesson during your student’s art class about the "Think First and Stay Safe" program. The lesson in November will cover the concepts of "Using My Built In Computer: Staying Healthy and Safe." The lesson in January will cover "Laws Help Protect Me: Kids Have Rights Too!" and "Listening to My Instincts: No Secrets".

Should your child have any questions, you may refer to the handout that will be provided to them on the day of the lesson. If you have additional questions feel free to contact a School Social Worker – Morgan Bilthuis, Nichole Reiser, and Sarah Altobelli.

Grand Prairie will once again host a giving tree during the holiday season. We will gladly accept donations of new children’s gloves, mittens, hats, and scarves to decorate our giving tree. We will donate all items to a local shelter for children in need of warm winter gear for the cold weather season.THANK YOU!!
