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 may not get messages until the end of the day, so if you do not speak to me directly and I need the information before the end of the day, please call the office back and ask them to be sure 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 every morning. You will also find communications from the school and classroom.
Please send your child with gym shoes every day. We have a scheduled time in the gymnasium each day and visit the playground when possible.
Please have your child dressed for the weather every day. We may be on the playground, out for a walk, or out for a drill at any time in any kind of weather. Thanks for helping us to be prepared!
You may want to 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.
