Ms. Amber King
I am so excited to be working with you this year! I graduated from UNC-Charlotte with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education and Minor in Children's Literature and Childhood Studies. I look forward to our year together!
A T Allen teaches good citizenship and positive behavior through our PBIS program. Your child will bring home a Responsibility Card each day. This card will let you know how your child's day was. For every hour of the day, each child has the possibility of earning one point, for a total of seven points by the end of the day. If a child does not receive a point, they receive a letter instead, and it is marked with a code that is further explained on the responsibility card. I will also write an extra note explaining what happened on the back of the card. This card will come home daily, so please look for it as we ask for a parent’s initials each night. Good weekly behavior is rewarded on Friday’s with “Fun Friday”, as well as whole grade celebrations each quarter.
As you know education is a three-way street between teachers, students and parents. Communication is key! You can stay informed with what is happening in our class and at school by visiting the A.T. Allen website, A.T. Allen page on Facebook, our classroom website, and calendar. I will also send home a newsletter each month in your child's binder. This will inform you about what we will be learning in class, special days and your child's schedule. You may send notes/money to school in your child's zipper bag which is located in the front of your student's binder. You may also contact me through phone or email. Email is the best way to reach me since I am able to check it throughout the day. I will not be able to speak by phone during instructional hours, but will do my best to return phone calls within a day.
I look forward to working with you and your child this year. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. :)
