Dear Parents and Guardians,          
My name is Carmen Niemiec and I will be your child’s fourth grade teacher this 2014/2015 school year!  I am very excited to be at Kennedy Elementary working with a wonderful group of students, parents and teachers.           
I graduated from Eastern Michigan University in 2004 with a bachelors in science and am certified to teach elementary school as well as middle school science and language arts.  I have been blessed to have had many wonderful teaching experiences here in Livonia, including second grade at Hoover,first and second grade at Cass, and fourth grade at Roosevelt.          
Starting today the students will bring home an purple folder and a daily planner.  It is important for your child to get into the routine of bringing these items back to school each day.  The folder will contain homework and important notes, and the planner is a tool that will help them to stay organized with their assignments and up-coming events.              
I look forward to seeing you at Open House/Curriculum Night on Tuesday, September 10th.  Please feel free to contact me by either calling the office and leaving a message or through e-mail.  I check my e-mail at least twice a day, before and after school.   

This will be a great year as we care, learn, and grow together!                                                Sincerely,                                                            Carmen Niemiec
