Information for Parents
Home to School Folder
All notices and homework going home can be found in your child's "Home to School" folder. The "Stays at Home" side is for all completed work or notices that may stay at home. The "Bring to School" side is for homework and notices that need to be signed and returned to school. Please check this folder every night. Also, if you need to send in any notes for me, please put them in this folder.
I encourage children to bring a snack for our morning snack break. Cheese and crackers, popcorn, pretzels, fruits, vegetables, yogurt, applesauce, breakfast bars, and granola bars are just a few favorite nutritious suggestions.
The children are quickly adjusting to lunch in the cafeteria. Lunchtime is about 25 minutes (that's all!), followed by a 20 minute recess period.
Back to School Night
Please note that there will be an early dismissal on the Back to School Night. Please strongly consider attending, as there is a lot of information discussed. Additional information will be sent home in the near future.
First grade conferences take place in November (Marking Period 1) and April (Marking Period 3). Conferences are in lieu of a report card. All conferences are about 15 minutes long.
Are you interested in reading to the class? Then be a mystery reader! You may pick 1-2 books from home, or I can supply you with a book from the class. Please email me a day and time that would work for you.
*If your child is absent from school, a note must be sent in one the day of his/her return explaining the absence.
*Please remember to send in a note if you are picking your child up from school. If your child does not have a note, please call the office to let them know. The office will then notify me of the change in dismissal.
