Check folders every night!  

Sign conduct calendar daily.

Snack: Don't forget your snack everyday.  Finger foods only- nothing that requires a spoon, fork, or has juice.  You may bring plain water.  We eat snack around 10:30 each morning. Place snacks in a Baggie labeled with your child's name or label the snack.  We have a working snack and only have time for the students to snack on ONE thing.  

Playground: I love flip-flops, but they don't work very well on the playground.  Please keep in mind that our playground is gravel and open toed shoes are very uncomfortable and hard to play in on gravel.  We have recess everyday at 1:40, weather permitting, please keep an eye on the daily temps as they change.  Some days may require jackets if it gets chilly.

Dismissal: Any changes in dismissal must be in writing.  If you need to change the way your child goes home, you must send a note in your child's folder.  If you need to change the way your child goes home during the school day, you must come to school and make the change in writing.  We cannot accept changes over the phone for the safety of the students. 

Announcements/ Events  

Money for breakfast and lunch needs to be labeled and in the pouch inside the daily folder.

Students will need to bring a small snack from home each day.  Finger foods that do not need a fork or spoon and water.
