5A Gina Makara

September 8th 2019

Dear Parents,

I am delighted your child is in my 5th grade Prep class this year! My name is Gina Makara and this is my fifth year as a Prep teacher. My daughter Allie is also in the class. I am very excited to work with you and your child as we learn what it means to be followers of Jesus and follow Jesus’ teachings. It is very helpful when parents, students and Prep teachers work together to ensure a positive experience and a successful year!

Our class will spend the next upcoming weeks continuing to get to know each other and establishing a caring Prep class community. I will send home updates via the Saint Matthew website to keep you informed about what we have learned, what we will be learning and any assignments which require completion for home reinforcement…home reinforcement is very important in the learning experience and highly recommended/encouraged!

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. Thank you in advance for your support …I know we are going to have a fantastic year!

Blessings,

Gina Makara
