Parties: We hope to have 2 parties during the year: Christmas and End of year. We will also have several special snack celebrations to celebrate and correlate with the holidays or special events in our classroom.
Snack: Each day your child will be allowed to eat a quick nutritional snack from home. Please send the snack daily. Also please try to make sure the snack is easy to be opened by your child.
Tardiness: Please make sure you child arrives to school on time. The building opens at 7:20. Students need to be in their seats and ready to learn at 8:00. It is very important that your child has had time to unpack and not feel rushed.
Transportation: If your child’s dismissal time changes, please send us a note specifying the change. We must have written permission from the parents to change a child’s transportation. If your child rides in a car, please let him/her at the walkway each morning and we will bring him/her out in the afternoon.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be glad to answer.
