• Dear Parents,


    Welcome to Room 6! My name is Shannon Polakowski and I am looking forward to a wonderful school year with your child. We will be working together to help your child work to the best of their ability and have a successful year. 


    Stay-Tuned:  Ask your child what he or she is studying, and look in the homework folder every night. Your child will be sent home with his/her homework log and folder daily. Please empty the folder out.   It is very important to look at the parent portal.  New information is always given and grades are always being updated.


    Ask Questions:  If you have any concerns or are wondering why something is happening, please feel free to email me at any time (spolakowski@marsd.org).  I welcome all concerns, ideas, and feedback that affect your child or our classroom. I will also be using REMIND to send information out about our classroom and you will be able to contact me through REMIND.  


    Snack:  We will be having lunch around 11:00; therefore we will be having a “working” snack in the morning. Please send in a snack for your child separate from lunch and labeled with their name.  I will not be giving any snacks out. Please keep in mind we do have allergies in the classroom. (NO PEANUTS PLEASE) Please also give me a heads up at least one day ahead of time if your child is planning to bring a treat (nut-free) for his or her birthday. No candy please.


    Transportation: If your child is going home a different way than usual, you NEED to write a note or call the office; we cannot go by your child’s word. 


    I hope to see you on September 17th at 7:00 pm at Back to School Night. Good communication between us is the key to your child's success this year. I’m looking forward to a fantastic year!



        Mrs. Polakowski
