Call the attendance office at 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. As per Board policy, homework will not be sent home ahead of time for unexcused absences.
Invitations can only be handed out if the entire class is invited. On the day of your child's birthday, please send in finger foods only. If the treat requires napkins, plates, or utensils please be sure to send those in as well. We strongly encourage you to send in a HEALTHY snack for your child's birthday such as fruit cups, fruit bars, pretzels, yogurt, etc. The treats will be passed out during snack time by your child with teacher assistance. Passing of treats outside of the classroom is prohibited.
Children bring home their book baggies filled with "Just Right Books" Monday-Friday. Please help them to put the baggies back into backpacks so that they are returned to school the following day.
There will be daily outdoor recess after lunch, weather permitting. Please send your child to school with warm attire during the winter months.
Please sign up for your conference at Curriculum Night. Conferences will be held once in the Fall. If you have any other concerns, please contact me so we can schedule a meeting outside of the conference times.
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.
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. The nightly "Just Right" reading book is considered homework.
Labeling clothing, backpacks, lunchboxes, and personal items is very helpful. Lost and Found is located by the main office.
All Rx's should be given to the Health Office if taken during school hours (this includes cough drops).
Email is a great way to communicate with me. Please allow for a 24 hour turnaround in responses. I collect and review notes sent in by you every morning. When sending in a note for me, please alert your child that there is a note in his/her folder for him/her to give me. Please send in a note for all dismissal changes. If the change occurs mid-day please be sure to call the main office as opposed to an email as I cannot guarantee that I will have the opportunity to read it before dimissal that afternoon.
Please make sure that you sign your child out in the Main Office if you are picking them up early for any reason.
Please supply your child with a HEALTHY snack everyday, including days in which your child is ordering school lunch, when there are celebrations, and on mininmum days.
If your child is late, please have him/her go to the Attendance Office immediately for a late pass. School begins promptly at 8:05 a.m.
If you need to speak with me, please schedule a meeting either before/after school or during a special.
All visitors must report to the Main Office to sign in and receive a Visitor's Badge. Please be sure to bring your driver's license.
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 Main Office to sign in and receive a Visitor's Badge.
