Notes and Reminders for Parents:
Toys: Electronic devices and trading cards are not allowed in school unless specified by the teacher. (such as a special game day)
Outdoor recess: All students will go outside for 20 minutes of fresh air and exercise every day when it is warmer than 32 degrees. If your child has a medical need which prohibits him/her from going out please send a doctor's note to the nurse.
Snack: We have snack every afternoon. Please pack your child’s snack separately from his/her lunch. We ask that you not send glass containers to school. The teachers do not provide snack.
Money: If your child chooses to buy lunch, or bring in money for a special event, money MUST be sent to school in an envelope or wallet labeled with your child’s name. Please DO NOT send loose money to school with your child.
Invites: If your child will be handing out invitations in school, please make sure that everyone in the class is invited. Invitations may not be handed out to only a few children in school.
Birthdays: Children like to celebrate their birthdays with their classmates. Birthdays at the district's eight elementary schools may be celebrated but we ask that this be done without food. We will celebrate by singing "Happy Birthday" as a class, and I will give the birthday child a crown to wear all day and a birthday pencil. Should you want your child to celebrate his/her special day with his/her classmates further, here are some suggestions:
- Send something with your child to hand out to their classmates like stickers, pencils, small erasers, and/or bookmarks.
- Send in a copy of your child's favorite book to the classroom library in honor of his/her birthday and I will read it aloud to the class.
- The birthday child can bring in a game/song to share with the class. We will play it together.
Thank you for your cooperation!
