Parent / student info

Welcome to my blog. Here are some tips I would like to share in making sure your student is successful in the classroom.
1) Making sure students stay organized.
2) Making sure your son / daughter gets at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep every night.
3) Allowing your child or making sure your child reads 30-60 minutes every evening. It’s clear that a students writing ability is indicative to how well they can read.
4) Staying positive.
5) Keeping in contact if there is an issue or any question. I’m always here to ask any questions you may have and to help in any way I can.

Info for Spring!!!

Hello all,

Welcome to Spring! I wanted to let you know that in the Spring the Malabon track team gets ramped up and started and I encourage you speak with your child about running with the Malabon team. Mrs. Kampfer and I have been the Malabon track coach for the last five years and we love what we do. The team consists of both fourth and fifth grade students, and it’s a wonderful oppertunity for your child to have some fun, socialize, and exercise too! Come check it out!

This is just a little tid bit about the state OAKS math and reading assessment coming up soon for students in my class in the next couple weeks. I wanted to make sure to let you know that its very important that your child completes their assignments and that they receive plenty of sleep and excercise as Spring arrives.

Furthermore, the class and I are beginning to study and learn about the planets for the next couple weeks. Each student will be placed in a group and they will be responsible for researching their planet, doing a class presentation about their planet, making their planet out of a ballon, water, paper, flour, and finally painting their planet.

I hope that you encourage your child to teach you about what they’ve learned, and to share any information you may have about the planets with your child. The Spring is a fun and exciting time of year for students and I’m very excited about more activities to come!!!

Kindly, Johnny

Mr. D’s class is soaring in writing!!

Hey all,

I wanted to let you know that in a couple weeks,  my students will be taking the state writing assessment. They have already come so far since the beginning of the year, but we still have much more to learn. 

If you have a spare moment at home, allow your child to show you the skills of just what they’ve learned. You would be amazed to see that indeed these kid are soaring and I’m so proud of the knowledge they’ve gained over the past 4 months.

 I recommend that your children “my students” should get plenty of sleep over the next couple weeks so that they can be properly rested in preperation for the writing assessment. I also recommend that your kids are eating right. 

These kids are not only incredibly hard workers, but they strive to be the best which is a wonderful quality.. A quality that will take them far in life!! Go Mr. D’s class!!
