Here is some information that you will find helpful:
We have snack every day around 10:30. You may send in a healthy snack and a bottle of water with your child. Some suggestions for snacks are
I do not allow chips, sugary treats, juice, or gatorade. Those can be saved for lunch.
If your child is celebrating a birthday please remember we are not allowing parties any longer. If you would like to bring in a goodie bag for your child to pass out at the end of the day please make sure that every child gets one so nobody is left out. We have 24 students this year.
Suggested School supplies:
The school and I have provided most of the supplies that your child will need this year. If you would like to contribute to the class the following items would be very helpful:
- Hand sanitizer
- Clorox wipes
Also, your child needs a folder to have in their desk for any incomplete work. You may want to buy them a pencil box so they can hold all of their crayons, pencils, markers and so on. It would be very helpful if you can send a pair of headphones for your child so they can listen to a book on the computer during Daily 5. The headphones are not being provided by the school at this time.
Monday – Gym
Tuesday – Media
Wednesday – Art
Thursday – Music & Library Check Out
Friday – Enrichment and Music
This year we will be using Class Dojo to monitor students’ behavior. I will be sending home the class link later this week so you can access your child’s behavior on a daily basis.
Homework will not be sent home on a daily basis. I believe that your child should read every day as their homework. Math and other subject areas may be sent home as homework, but not daily.
Each week your child needs to read 100 minutes. You need to sign the reading log once a week. If they do not turn in with their reading log then they will lose their recess. The reading log will be sent home on Monday.
