Hi! My name is Callie White and this is my fifth year of teaching. Last year I taught second grade at Hilton Elementary. Prior to that, I taught the first and second grade magnet class at Spencer. During my first year of teaching, I taught first grade at Dolsen Elementary in South Lyon. I began my teaching career here in Brighton as a student teacher in third grade at Hawkins Elementary. In 2014, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Eastern Michigan University. While I was there, I was a double major, I studiedElementary Education as well as Integrated Elementary Science. We are going to have a wonderful time this year and I can’t wait to get to know every member of our classroom community.

Ms. White

Take Home Folders

This year, your student will be receiving a special take home folder that they will bring to school every day. These will be used for communication between home and school.These folders will be used to bring home school work. Any important notes that I need to see should be sent to school in this folder or in an email. Homework will always come home in your child’s green daily communication folder.

These folders should comeback to school every day even if there is no homework. There will be days when there is no homework and I will be sure to let you know. Homework will be coming home inSeptember. You’ll be surprised to see how excited they are to have real homework!



Our class will be using the Remind communication app this year. This can be downloaded from your app store. (google play or apple)
