*Supplies and Classroom Fee:
Each child will need to bring the following items to Open House or the first day of school.
- Headphones - your child will keep these in their materials pouch and use as needed throughout the year. This is very important for them to be able to complete assignments and activities on ipads, laptops and chromebooks.

If you need to send a check, please make it payable to Corbin Primary School AND note the student’s name on the check. This needs to be paid no later than Friday, August 17th.

CHANGES FOR THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR
*In order to ensure student safety, we are respectfully asking that second grade students be dropped off at the door instead of walking them in. Safety of our students is a number one concern. It also helps with setting the tone for school procedures and getting them use to what they will do in the morning.
*All Corbin schools will be getting FREE breakfast and lunch. However, parents must still fill out a lunch application form. By filling out the lunch application, this will help our school system to hopefully continue to be able to offer free lunch to our district.
*This year 2nd grade will be trying something new! We have partnered up with a colleague and have been assigned a subject to teach each others' students. This will allow teachers to have more time to plan for a specific subject which in return will increase student achievement. This will also better prepare students for their transition to 3rd grade in which they have different teachers per subject. I'm so excited to see the results from this experience. I hope that all my students have a very positive experience with this new approach. My partner this year is Mrs. Angela Disney and she will have your child for one and half hour in which she will be teaching Reading! She is a certified teacher through Kentucky Reading Project (Collaborative Center for Literacy Design through the state of Kentucky)! However, I will be your child's homeroom teacher and will be teaching your child Mathematics along with Spelling, Grammar, Accelerated Reading, Science, and Writing. Our team is name is called "Team Incredible!"
*Nightly Reading will begin on Tuesday (September 4th). Please be patient while we are accessing Reading levels. At first, I allow students to read based upon their interest. Then in a few weeks, we will have them on a more accurate reading level. I think its important for kids to have the opportunity to read books that they enjoy as well as books on their reading level.
*H.O.M.E. Folders will be sent home the first day of school. This is our main source of communication. Please make sure your child returns their H.O.M.E. Folder daily!
