Parents and Guardians,

 

I believe in strong parent/teacher communication. This year I want to send weekly emails to keep everyone in the know.  Please send an email to: coleen.owens@ucps.k12.nc.us with your name and your child’s name. Always feel free to email me with questions or concerns. 

I also plan to celebrate my students throughout the year, I will work hard to keep you updated on any events happening this year.

 

Students,

 

I believe in open communication between teacher and student, as well. As long as there is honesty and trust between us, we are guaranteed a productive year ahead. In our classroom, we will: take initiative and cooperate with each other. 

Everyone has choices. I know sometimes temptation leads us to make a choice without thinking, but if you stay truthful and learn from mistakes, we can easily move forward. I start every relationship with trust and respect, you have to prove that you can be trusted to make the right choices in order to keep my trust, but I will always show you respect and I will always make choices that benefit your learning.
