Welcome Letter

Hi Parents,

 

I would like to welcome you to the new school year.  I am honored to return to Leapwood.  For those who are new to Leapwood, I am Tosha Sargent, and it is my pleasure to be your son/daughter’s Special Education Teacher. 

 

My Special Education Program is filled with lots of hands on activities which focuses on all learning styles; visual, kinesthetic, audio etc.  Your son/daughter will be learning social skills, life skills and academics through many different channels:

 

·      ART

·      MUSIC

·      DANCE       

·      SINGING

·      MODELING

  • TECHNOLOGY

and much more.  Feel free to give me information that will help me better understand your son or daughter’s need.

 

IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR YOUR SON/DAUGHTER TO BE AS INDEPENDENT AS POSSIBLE.   MY STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO DO FOR THEMSELVES WITH AS LITTLE HELP AS POSSIBLE TO INCREASE THEIR COGNITIVE ABILITY.

 

Thank you and have a great day,                     

 

Tosha Sargent, M.Ed.

Parent Reminders

Please make sure that I have the following information on file for you and your child

 

  • A list of the type of snacks that your child likes as treats (feel free to send a small amount to school if you have a few at home).  I will use the treats as a motivator to work nicely and calmly.  
  • Your name and contact number in the event that I may need to contact you during class
  • Your email address so that your child will have access to their VizZle homework.  VizZle is a great interactive program that is used in the classroom.

Homework Policy

Your son/daughter will be receiving a homework folder that will include daily logs, homework, and other notices.  

 

I will also include a communication book for your comments.  Feel free to visit our classroom. 

 

All homework given is expected to be completed by the student and returned. 

 

Students will earn homework treats based on their completion of homework.
