Please dress your child in clothing appropriate for play. Both inside and outside, we run, jump, dance, crawl, and climb. It’s helpful if you label coats and hats with your child’s name. It is also helpful to send in an extra set of clothes to keep in your child's locker, just in case!
A plastic folder will be sent home daily. It is very important to check the backpack every night. Please empty it and send any notes, lunch money, etc. back to school in the folder as I will check it daily. This is a main form of communication and it’s necessary that you check your child’s folder EVERY DAY.
Excuses are required each time your child returns to school after an absence. Please include the date(s) and the reason for the absence(s), as well as the child’s full name, my name, and your signature. Please send the excuse the first day back to school with your child in his/her take-home folder.
Children love to celebrate birthdays! In our class we celebrate birthdays with a book. On your child's birthday, please choose one special/favorite book from home to send in and share with the class. Students also receive a coupon for a free ice cream treat from the cafeteria! If your child has a summer birthday, we celebrate half birthdays. I will write on the monthly calendar when birthdays will be celebrated and do my best to send a book reminder home the day before.
