Dear Parents/ Guardians,

    Hello! I am Mr. Schmoyer, your child’s fourth grade teacher! I wanted to take this opportunity to open communication that will make your child’s year a happy, productive, and successful one. I am enthusiastic as I enter into another year at Rolling Hills Elementary School, and am thrilled to be part of the school community. It is most certainly a pleasure to work in such a devoted community as Council Rock, where families and educators work together to ensure the best education for their children. This partnership that you and I will develop throughout this coming year will be crucial to the success of your child.

    We're living through trying times. In the midst of the current health crisis and the crisis over racial equality, it is now more important than ever to establish caring and trusting relationships with others. Students won't be accessing new information in a traditional format, but their time with me will still be academically, behaviorally, and emotionally meaningful.

    In order to make this year as impactful as I can, I need to know as much as possible about your child in the different areas of their life. There will be lots of time in class to get to know them, but it would be foolish if I didn't consult the people who know them best: YOU! To assist me in this endeavor, I will be reaching out soon with a survey for you to complete.

    I firmly believe that with your child at the center of our goals, we will have a successful partnership and a prosperous year in fourth grade, regardless of where we are physically! Thank you in advance for taking the time to help me get to know your child. Your insights will help me to address your child’s individual needs to the best of my ability. I look forward to meeting you and your child in the coming weeks!


                                                                            Most Sincerely,

                                                                            Mr. Nick Schmoyer
