Lunch with your child

Lunch with your child

The guidelines for coming into have lunch with your child are that you will need to give your child’s teacher a 24 hour notice so that she/he can notify the school secretary and check the schedule for that day. Also, you will need to report to the main office to sign in upon your arrival. Once your child’s teacher comes to pick the students up from lunch, you will need to report back to the office to sign out. Please do not go to your child’s classroom.

Dear Parents,

When packing your children’s snack/lunch in the morning, please make sure to pack the necessary utensils that they may require. The forks, spoons, napkins and straws in the cafeteria are for those students who are purchasing a hot lunch only. We hope that you understand. Thanking you in advance for your help with this matter.

Your child will be bringing home a website log in today. This is part of your child’s daily homework routine. The goal is to have each child read for 20 minutes a day and answer the comprehension questions that go along with each story. I will be keeping track of each child’s weekly progress. I understand that there will be days where your child will not be able to read. Please do not worry. There will be a note attached to your child’s log in explaining each step. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions. Each child will move up to a different level as they progress through the books. The goal is to have the stories start off easier and eventually lead to more challenging ones.
