Welcome to Universal Pre-K room #7.
We are planning for a year of learning and fun for every child!
On this site, you will find information about the classroom and classroom teacher, links for fun and academics, and links for Pre-K specific information.
IF I CAN HELP:
See the "About Teacher" section for contact information, or use the "remind" app. I often can not look for messages until the end of each session, so call and speak to me directly if I need the information quickly or call the office back and instruct them to get the message to me.
YOU CAN HELP:
Please CHECK, EMPTY and RETURN the communications folder every day. This is a great way to communicate, as we check the folders before every session. You will also find communications from the school and classroom.
Please send your child with gym shoes and dressed for the weather every day. We may go out for a walk, or out for a practice drill at any time in any kind of weather. Thanks for helping us to be prepared!
Please send (and replace as needed) an extra set of clothing for your child so that we may deal with life's little accidents without having to call you into school.

Mr. E. Nelson
Mr. Nelson came late to teaching after years of being a counselor for children and adults in a variety of settings across New York State. As a teacher, he has taught eighth, seventh, third, and first grades, kindergarten, Pre-K, and special education. He has taught in Saxapahaw North Carolina, and the Islands of Majuro and Kili in the Marshall Islands. He is glad to now be back "home" in Chautauqua County and is thoroughly enjoying coming back to Pre-k for the second time.
