My name is August Traylor. I was born and raised in Lincoln,
Nebraska and moved to Omaha to pursue my teaching career. This is my third year
at King Elementary and my second year as a first grade teacher. I hope to develop
a love for learning within your student and I look forward to teaching your
first grader this school year!
King Elementary uses
the Rockin’ Behavior Guitar to monitor student behavior. At the end of each day your
student’s folder will be marked with the color they ended the day on. They will
move up the chart for positive choices and down the chart for negative choices.
I expect all students to end the day on green or above. I hold high expectations for each of my students as I know they are
capable of following classroom and school expectations and making positive
Homework days will be
Monday and Wednesday.
Homework is expected to take between fifteen to twenty minutes each night it is
assigned. Students are expected to bring back their homework the next day. I understand
that things happen and sometimes students forget to bring their homework back,
therefore they are given two freebies. After they forget their homework twice
they will have to sit out of recess until they bring it back completed. This
same rule applies to their blue folders. Their folders are expected to come
back each day. Just a reminder, the paperwork in the left side of the folder
can be kept at home while papers in the right side are to be returned back to school
as soon as possible.
Many students bring
school supplies from home. I would ask that they keep these supplies at home as
we do not have desks in our classroom. I have let your student know that they can use these
supplies to complete homework or practice their skills at home. Each student
table has a team tub with all of the supplies they need for the day. If you
would like to donate to our classroom our biggest needs throughout the school
year are Kleenexes, snacks or your time in the classroom.
Your student’s safety is very
important to me. If there is any change
in how your student will be getting home after school or who will pick them up
please let me know by either sending a note or giving me a phone call at the
school. This is a very important part in getting your student home safely.
I am excited to get to know, learn from and teach your
student this school year. I also hope to develop a positive working
relationship with your family.
If you ever have any questions or concerns about your student
please do not hesitate to call me at the school (402-457-5723). If I am not available when you call please feel
free to leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
