Mrs. Margie White
Hi! My name is Margie White and this is my 16th year teaching. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from ECU and a Masters in Reading. This year I will be teaching 5th grade ELA and Social Studies. I am very excited about starting a new year. Please contact me at any time if you have any questions or concerns.
Your child’s purple folder is very important. This will serve as our communication folder. Any notes, papers, etc. that need to be signed or taken home to review will be sent home in this folder. This folder is important for checking your child’s progress.
Bi-Weekly Progress Reports:
It is my goal to send out bi-weekly progress reports. Attached to the progress report will be your students' work (quizzes, tests. Etc.). This way, you can see your child’s grades and progress in their academics. These will have to be signed and returned to me.
It is my goal to send out a monthly newsletter. This will show you what your child is learning as well as any important information or upcoming events that you need to be aware of.
Class Behavior Expectations:
- Keep our classroom neat and clean.
- Listen and follow directions.
- Always try your best.
- Be prepared.
- Respect yourself and others.
In our class, we will use a reward system called Class Dojo. Students can gain points for helping others, staying on task, participating, returning signed papers, teamwork, working hard, persistence, and having a clean space. In our classroom, it is our goal that every student ends the day with at least one positive point! If there is a repeated behavior issue, a Dojo message will be sent or a phone call will be made to inform you of the issue we are having. We are a team! Please encourage your child to do their best every day! If your child is consistently having behavior issues, they may be moved to an individual behavior plan to ensure their success!
Dismissal is at 2:40.
If your child's dismissal routine changes, please send a note AND let me know by sending me a message in Dojo. I cannot take dismissal changes solely through dojo messages or emails. You must send a note and/or call the front office at 252-232-2237. Sending a Dojo message in addition to the note or phone call is extremely helpful and appreciated. Communication is imperative to ensure your child arrives home safely!
I look forward to working with your child this year!
