1 All I Ever Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten by Robert Fulghum Most of what I really need to know about how to live, and what to do, and how to be, I learned in kindergarten. I learned: share everything, play fair, dont hit people, put things back where you found them, clean up your own mess,dont take things that arent yours, say youre sorry when you hurt somebody, wash your hands before you eat... Learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some. Take a nap every afternoon. When you go out into the world, watch for traffic, hold hands and stick together…

4 Attendance After being absent,a student is required to bring the teacher a written excuse signed by the parents or doctor. Any student who is absent more than 18 days may have their attendance record reviewed by the campus attendance committee.

5 Transportation When there is a change in your childs usual transportation: 1.Send a note to the teacher and call the office before 2 pm.

6 Notes to the Teacher Please put all notes in your childs calendar folder.

7 Dress Children should wear comfortable clothing for an active day. All grades are required to follow the dress code as outlined in the Klein ISD handbook. Tennis shoes are required for PE (except Wednesday).

8 Snack and Lunch Kindergarteners need to bring a small snack (finger foods only) and a water bottle (with a sport top). Children may bring their own lunch from home or buy lunch from the cafeteria. We recommend that parents put money in their childs lunch account, rather than send cash to school.

9 Conferences There will be a parent/teacher conference in the Fall, which will be a holiday for your child. Parents only at the conference please. Parents and teachers may request another conference as needed. Parents may leave messages on the teachers e-mail or voice mail at any time during the day.

10 Birthdays Party invitations can be distributed by the classroom teacher. There must be an invitation for every child in the class (or all girls/all boys)– no names on the invitation envelopes. Parents interested in sending party food must seek approval from the school nurse 2 weeks in advance. Birthdays are acknowledged at school by the teacher and classmates.

11 Toileting Accidents If a child has an accident at school, they are sent to the school nurse. Please keep a change of clothes in their backpack.

12 Backpacks Each student needs to bring a backpack to school everyday. Backpacks should be big enough to hold 2 pocket folders and a library book. We suggest water bottles be kept in an outside backpack pocket (or a ziplock bag).

13 Folders Behavior/calendar folder – goes home in the childs backpack everyday. Parents should initial the calendar daily and return it to school the following day. Wednesday folder – goes home every Wednesday. Parents should look at their childs papers, read the teachers comments, sign, and return the folder to school on Thursday.
