2016-2017 School Year!

Hello and welcome to Miss Amanda's blog! 

I usually use this forum to post pictures and information about our amazing field trips and fun activities we do in class (such a cooking, special guests, etc.)! 

On the right side of your screen you'll see some links to important pages! 

The Upper SRC Wishlist 

When you click this link you will find some items the Upper SRC is in desperate need of! We can always use snacks, baby wipes, and anything else you are willing to donate! 


Miss Ashlee (the teacher of the Primary SRC) and I get together every summer and create an awesome SRC syllabus! Here you will see the month, the thematic unit (all named after TV shows or movies this year! We're soooo creative ;), the topics of study, the special activity for the month, and the parental responsibility. This way there will be no surprises when field trip permission slips come home! 

Homework Policy

Click here for more information regarding the homework policy. Homework is not mandatory, but if you want some for you child, don't hesitate to ask!


Remind is this awesome app that allows the teacher to send messages to families! I usually send out Reminds to remind parents about upcoming field trips, snow days, and anything else exciting! I try not to send them out too early! It's hard to remember not everyone gets up at 5am! :) 

Too Sick For School?

Here is a nice visual of the Beaverton School District's sick policy. Since some of our students have difficulty managing themselves and their symptoms (wiping nose, covering coughs and sneezes, etc.) at school, this policy is especially important! Please make sure your child is fever free, vomit free, and diarrhea free for at least 24 hours (without the aid of medication) before sending them back to school!
