•  For Room 410

    • For my classroom I will start with a warning, if the behavior continues then they will be sent to the cool down corner in my room to fill out a think sheet to reflect on their choices and ways to prevent or avoid it next time. Then the sheet will be sent home for the parent to look at and discuss with their child and to be signed and returned the next day. In addition, I will send an email or phone call letting the parent/guardian know what happened and to be prepared to see a think sheet in their child’s backpack. If the behavior continues, I will contact the parents/guardians and administration to discuss next steps to take.
    • Toro Tickets: When a student is modeling one of the TORO attributes (TOROS Expectations), they will receive a Toro Ticket from me and it is placed into a bin. Every Friday I will choose a few tickets at random to get to pick a prize of out the treasure box.

    Communication

    Class Website

    • We have a classroom website! I will be updating it with information about what we are learning in the classroom, homework, and upcoming events in the classroom and on campus.

    Planner 

    • Students will receive a school planner-this will be used to keep track of assignments and when they are due, when tests are, school events, classroom events, and nightly homework. 

    Weekly Newsletter and Announcements

    • Every week I will be sending out an email with the weekly newsletter for the following week. It will contain information about campus, our classroom and what we are learning. Also when I send reminders I will be sending out a text announcement via blackboard.

    Contact Details

    Please do not hesitate to email or call me with any questions you may have. I can be reached at my school email, sloan.tomasello@dvusd.org or through the school with my office phone 623-445-5858. Typically I respond to emails within a few hours or less, give or take the day or time it was sent.

    Union Park has implemented email office hours and a “curfew” to ensure that we maintain a healthy work-life balance. I will respond to emails/remind/calls Monday through Friday from 7:00am to 8:30am and again from 3:30-5:00pm.

    Please schedule specific times to meet with me, as we need time to communicate effectively. I often have professional duties directly before and after school hours. Please understand that I will not be able to meet or discuss issues while I am teaching or supervising students. However, I will contact you as soon as I can.
