    Absentees

    Call x6376 if your child is going to be absent. Notify the school in advance if your child is going to be absent due to a vacation.

    Birthdays

    Invitations can only be handed out if the entire class is invited. On the day of your child's birthday, please send in healthy foods only. Ex. fruit bars, frozen fruit bars, popcorn, cheese sticks, etc. The treats will be passed out during snack time by the child. Passing of treats outside of the classroom is prohibited.

    Book Orders

    Each month, you will have an opportunity to order books from Scholastic. You are under no obligation to purchase. For every book that you order, I receive bonus points that can be redeemed for free books for our classroom. If you order, please do not send cash. Checks can be made payable to Scholastic Books Clubs.

    Classroom Books

    Children are encouraged to borrow books from the classroom. Books must be returned the next day in order to sign out another book.

    Clothing

    There will be daily outdoor recess after lunch, weather permitting. Please send your child to school with warm attire during the winter months.

    Conferences

    Please sign up for your conference at Curriculum Night. Conferences will be held in October. If you have any other concerns, please contact me so we can schedule a meeting outside of the conference times.

    Folders

    Please check your child's folder everyday. Often there are important papers enclosed; not only the children's work, but also important notices from the teacher. The children have been informed that their folders should be emptied nightly with the exception of returned notices, homework, etc.

    Homework

    The primary purpose of homework is to encourage your child to be responsible and to reinforce concepts taught in class. Homework is due the following morning, unless otherwise noted. 

    Labeling

    Labeling clothing, backpacks, lunchboxes, and personal items is very helpful. Lost and Found is located by the main office.

    Medications

    All Rx's should be given to the Health Office if taken during school hours.

    Notes

    If your child is going home a different way than usual, please send in a note stating so.

    Signing Out

    Please make sure that you sign your child out at the Greeter's Desk if you are picking them up early for any reason.

    Snack

    Please supply your child with a HEALTHY snack everyday, including when ordering lunch and parties.

    Tardiness

    If your child is late, please have your child go to the Greeter's Desk immediately for a late pass. School begins promptly at 8:05 a.m.

    Teacher-Parent Meetings

    If you need to speak to your child's teacher, please schedule a meeting either before or after school or during a special.

    Visitation

    All visitors must report to the Greeter's Desk to sign in and receive a Visitor's Badge.

    Volunteers

    There will be many opportunities to volunteer in the classroom during the year. Please sign up at Curriculum Night. When you come to volunteer it is important that you go directly to the Greeter's Desk to sign in and receive a Visitor's Badge.
