Remember to have your child pack a snack everyday, he/she is hungry by the time lunch rolls around at 12:20. I keep emergency packs of pretzels in the class, but once they’re gone for the week, they are gone. 5 students a day are forgetting their snacks, this class seems to like pretzels, so have your child pack pretzels.


It’s November and the weather is colder, make sure your child is dressed to go outside. We go outside unless we are told not to or rain. It is more pleasant to be outside if your child has layers: coat, hat, and gloves.
