• Hello Kutz Cougars!


    I am SO excited to be your child’s teacher this year. It will certainly be an exciting year full of patience, grace, and enthusiasm. The infornation below is a little lengthy, but it gives you the nuts and bolts of what  you will need for next week.


    Below you will find:

    • Welcome 
    • Schedule for the First Week of School
    • Forms Survey for Parents to Complete
    • Technology Support
    • Work Flow Chart
    • Supply List


    Welcome: We are going to have an exceptional year together. I believe one of the components for a successful year is for us to work together. I will send frequent communication in regard to what we are learning, important dates, reminders and general class updates. Please e-mail me with any questions and concerns you may have. I am here to support you in any way I can.  I’m planning on a quick Teams or phone call with each family in the next week or so in order to say hello and so you can put a face to the person behind the e-mails. I will send out a sign-up genius for that as soon as possible.



    Schedule-The schedule below will be followed every day the FIRST WEEK of school. We will spend the week building our classroom community, getting to know one another and learning how to use the technology tools that will allow us to virtually learn until we can be together in person.

    Forms Survey-Please complete this survey to help me learn about your student and family. Building relationships  and making connections is my top priority this year. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=j0gLqp78hUGl4zhCIN8jyhOeFdUdhbhLmVbPAowBk9xUNkxaTU05MVc3OEwyMThUNlZVMVNaUVBFNi4u


    Technology Support -It is very important that your student’s device is set-up prior to Tuesday. I will be sending you and your student the Teams link for our first call at 9:00am on Tuesday am.  I will e-mail it directly to the student via their CBSD e-mail address, and also to a parent’s e-mail. The easiest thing for your student to do is open this link from their CBSD e-mail on their device (and use your link as a “back-up”).

    -Follow the directions you received with your device to get set-up, find your student’s e-mail, etc. A copy of that is found here https://www.cbsd.org/1to1

    -This sway was created to assist in more detail https://www.cbsd.org/Page/63267

                  -If you have log-in and/or password issues, please contact our librarian Mrs. Jones, mjones@cbsd.org. If you still need assistance, please contact me so I can help you get what you need.  ( jabato@cbsd.org)

                  -Priority: Student E-mail (follow directions above).  

    Work Flow Chart: This will be helpful to show you the steps to follow, once we get started.
