Raving Fans

The CRANE FAMILY is a Raving Fan of MS. DIVITO: I really needed to take a minute and tell you what an outstanding job Ms. DiVito is doing and what a great year our daughter, Logan, is having as a result.  Mrs. DiVito meets her needs perfectly.  She has gone the extra mile this year in teaching reading and has spent time really looking at Logan's needs as an individual.  In taking some time out she noticed that Logan needs to specifically work on reading Fables.  I as parent really appreciate that targeted information. 

She has shared the charts (via email) they make in class on strategies to tackle fiction, etc.  She sends the parents photos of them to let us know the exact strategy.  My husband shared some concerns for math, and Ms. DiVito (even though it is not her subject area) took time out to email us some useful web sites for third grade math.

Her classroom management is terrific and Logan has got more GOOD friends this year than ever. I just wanted to share all the great work she is doing and let you know that this is Logan's best year yet.

MRS. PETERS is a Raving Fan of MRS. PARSONS: Reese is loving the essential 55 lessons each morning. She is enthusiastic each night in passing down information and teaching us all what she has learned. Reese absorbs all the personal anecdotes you include in those lessons, so please know you are making a big difference. I just wanted to send you a note to say, "thank you!" for this unique lesson that has inspired my daughter!

THE DEL NEGRO/KATSAVAVAKIS FAMILY is a Raving Fan of MRS. WEILER: There are teachers that leave long lasting memories in the education of a child. And you always wish that you will get at least one teacher like that. We are blessed that our son Sebastian has Mrs. Weiler as his teacher. She is wise beyond her years and has a true talent at recognizing children's strengths and weaknesses. She goes above and beyond her work to help her students and make school a positive experience. These attributes along with her academic knowledge makes her a great teacher that JV Washam should be very proud to have.

THE HOOPES FAMILY is a Raving Fan of ALL THE MORNING CARPOOL LINE TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS: No matter the weather, they are happy to help, encourage and say "Good Morning!" as the day begins. Thank you!

THE CRANE FAMILY is a Raving Fan of MRS. SCHIERLOH: Kindergarten is such an important year for beginning learners. Our daughter, Brylen, has learned so much already this year. Of course her reading, writing and math skills have grown, but so has her love of learning and her enthusiasm for school. She loves all of the interactive activities, centers and websites. Mrs. Schierloh does a great job communicating with the students and parents and has a great behavior system. Thanks for bringing her on board and making her a part of the J. V. Washam team!

THE DOEBLERS are Raving Fans of MRS. LONON and MRS. ABERNATHY: My husband and I want to thank you both so much for the amazing care and consideration that you showed our boys this week. Jackson and Nicholas were a little nervous about transitioning to bus riders this week and you both went above and beyond to ensure they were in the right location, were introduced to the bus driver and you so nicely communicated to us to ease our minds. Your daily care and kindness continue to amaze us. This circumstance was just another demonstration of your great effort.

THE VAN ROSSEN FAMILY is a Raving Fan of MRS. CREELY: This week, she went above and beyond her job as a teacher. We all know the methods our children are learning in math these days are very different than what we were taught in school. Mrs. Creely took the time to make a video for her student's parents to explain to us the methods our children are expected to understand and apply when it comes to multiplying and dividing fractions. This was extremely useful and we appreciated it greatly. :-) Thank you, Mrs. Creely

THE PESCHOS are Raving Fans of MRS. BYARS: Our son is a late starting kindergartner. Although he matured so much over the summer months and we knew he was ready mentally, we were concerned about what he actually had learned leading up to kindergarten. There are absolutely no concerns any longer. Mrs. Byars' has done an amazing job with him and he actually comes home every day and wants to write words!! He is learning his sight words and wants to sound out letters to figure out the word so he can read the word. He loves school, his friends, his great teacher. Thank you Mrs. Byars for creating a encouraging environment for learning!

MRS. WHITTAKER is a Raving Fan of MRS. FURCHES and MRS. LONON: I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how very pleased we have been with our daughter's progress this year! Ms. Furches and Ms. Lonon have really helped Anna Ross come a long ways in just a few months and we are so appreciative of their hard work with her. She loves coming to school and we are proud of what she has accomplished in such a short time. We are looking forward to the rest of the year with such a tremendous team.

THE VESELYS are a Raving Fan of MRS. WHITTAKER: Mrs. Whittaker's enthusiasm has further encouraged our girl's passion for learning through high energy, creative lessons, and high expectations taught in such a positive enviornment. Mrs. Whitakker's infectious passion for learning and dedication to each student's success has made all the difference this year.

MRS. KNOOP is a Raving Fan of MRS. KOLBENSCHLAG: I feel so extremely blessed to have my daughter in Ms. Kolbenschlag's class.  WOW!  Words truly can not explain what a wonderful experience the last few weeks have been.  My daughter has soared in all areas, but her reading and writing I have seen so much growth since school has started.  I know teacher's hard work is often so easily unnoticed, so I wanted to pass on how extremely happy we are and how excited we are to see what this new year will bring.

MRS. MAHONEY is a Raving Fan of MS. BRYANT (literacy facilitator):  Ms. Bryant has already set my son up for reading success this year!  Mrs. Bryant has been very proactive and responsive in helping find the right guided reading and interest level of books to get Matthew hooked on reading.  She has also provided strategies and theory for her input.  Ms. Bryant is an awesome andpleasant asset to JV Washam!
