Helpful Information and Reminders

 Contact Information

It is VERY IMPORTANT that we have the correct contact information for your child.  If there is a change in address or phone number throughout the year, please inform me (and the school) of the changes. Please make sure that I have your current email address. Email will be my primary source of communication.


School Dismissal

If for any reason there is a change in your child’s dismissal, please send a written note to inform me of the change.  In the case of a last minute change, please DO NOT leave me a voicemail message.  Make sure that you inform someone in the “Main Office” of the change.




Lunch can be brought from home or chosen from school daily or in advance. Lunch or snack money can be loaded onto your child's account or sent in with your child's name and homeroom.



Homework takes place Monday-Thursday.  There will be 1 or 2 sheets of written homework given.  Students should practice their spelling words each night, too.  Children are expected to read for at least 15 minutes every night.



Birthdays are special days!  Birthday snacks are permitted but not necessary. In our classroom, the birthday child will receive a class made birthday book. 


Additional Reminders

  • LABEL, LABEL, LABEL everything!  This avoids confusion or loss of articles.
  • Please make sure your child brings a backpack with the agenda and red folder each day.
  • Don’t forget to send an art smock to school if you have not done so already.
  • If you are visiting our classroom for any reason, please stop in the office to get a visitor’s pass.
  • Remember that children go outside for recess everyday (weather permitting). Please be sure to have your child dressed for the weather and wearing comfortable shoes, suitable for running and climbing.
