Birthdays! Feel free to bring in a treat for your child’s birthday. Plan on distributing during lunch. However, we will help your child hand out treats if you can’t make it during that time. Important: To avoid hurt feelings, birthday party invitations can only be distributed at school if (at least) everyone of that gender is included.
Transportation Walkers will gather on Kindergarten playground beginning next week. Emails can’t be accepted as notes for transportation. Please send a written note if transportation is changing for your child. No changes can be made after 2:00. If a child is unsure about transportation and we have not been advised he or she will be placed in ASP to guarantee safety. We will always try to contact you first. Car riders must be picked up by someone with a car tag. Otherwise, you will be required to go into the office to pick up your child. Cooperation with these procedures will help ensure the safety of our wonderful students. Please note that parents and students can’t go back into classrooms after 2:45. Please do not drive into the bus port during the mornings or during dismissal.
Absences and Tardies Please send in a note dated for when your child is absent explaining why they were absent. If a student arrives after the 7:50 tardy bell he or she must sign in at the front office. We will check for a tardy passes of students who arrive a few minutes after the 7:50 tardy bell.
Learning within the Classroom! Differentiation will be implemented, as needed, for all students. We will have many opportunities for small group instruction in all curriculum areas. Past experience shows that children perform much better in small group settings. Students will be challenged based on their instructional level as opposed to being plateaued or left behind. We are excited about the opportunity to work together with your child!
