Lauren McBain


Dear Parents,

Welcome back to HES!  I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Lauren McBain and  I am so excited to be your child’s first grade teacher this year! This is the start of my 4th year at Highlands and my 8th year teaching. During  that time I have taught Kindergarten and first grade. Here is some important information to get you started. Please complete the Welcome Questionnaire .  This will help me learn more about your child  including any specific goals you would like them to achieve and any concerns you may have.

Every  student has received a home/school communication folder. This will be the main folder your child will use. It will go home every day and should return to school the next day. Please check your child’s folder every night for important notes, graded work, and homework assignments. Homework will begin the week of 9/17.  I will send a more detailed homework letter home that Monday.

Every morning students will be given time to eat snack. It is important that students eat something nutritious to help them maintain focus until lunchtime.  Please send in a healthy snack with your child everyday.

If at any time you have questions or just wish to talk please feel free to contact me.  My email is lmcbain@hesk6.us or you can send a note in your child’s folder.  I promise to return all notes and emails within 24 hours. I look forward to meeting all of you at Back to School Night! Sincerely, Mrs. McBain
