Movies At the end of each quarter we may watch a movie to celebrate accomplishments made in the classroom or to enhance a literature study we have done in the classroom. Some examples of PG movies we watched last year were: The Cat in the Hat, Enchanted, and Alvin and the Chipmunks. When a movie is given a rating of PG, we are required to get permission from you as a parent to allow your child to take part in the viewing of the movie. If you would prefer that your child didn’t take part in this activity, we will provide an alternate classroom with educational activities they can participate in. Please fill in the area below and return as soon as possible. Yes, my child _______________________can participate in the viewing of PG movies in the classroom. No, my child_________________________ cannot participate in the viewing of PG movies. Parent Signature ______________________________________________
Lunch If your child will not be bringing a lunch from home, please make sure that your child has money in his/her lunch account. The cost for lunch is $ 2.50 a day. You can fund your child’s lunch account from home by going to www.mylunchmoney.com. You will need to set this up using your child’s student identification number. There is a charge of $1.95 to fund your child’s account online but it is easy and convenient and you will receive an email as soon as your child’s lunch account goes below $5.00. **If you are sending cash or a check in with your child, please be sure that it is in an envelope or Ziplok with your child’s name and classroom number (B1) on it. www.mylunchmoney.com
Back Packs Please send a back pack with your child each day beginning on the first day of school. Be sure to check your child’s back pack daily.
Snack and Water Please send in a healthy snack with your child, as we do have snack in the morning each day. Also, it would be a good idea for your child to have a water bottle each day to keep in class. We keep all water bottles in one location so **please be sure their name is on their water bottle.
Transportation Please make sure that your child knows their mode of transportation for the first day and each day after that. This saves us all the feeling of anxiety at 3:04.
