Reminders - Heath forms and Head phones

Every child needs to have Health forms on File.

The physical need to be LESS than one year old.

If you do not have a form, let me know.

If you do not have a physical form on file, but have an appointment, let me know I can note your file.

We need every child who wants to use the listening center to have his or her own earphones for sanitary reasons.

So far only two students have brought in headphones. We would like to open the center up soon. I have seen some inexpensive ones at places like Homegoods/Marshalls.

Send in the Clothing

It can get cold as the weather changes.

Please pack a sweater or jacket in your child’s back pack.

Our classroom may be cold.

Also a light weight small blanket or throw will help your child feel comfortable.

We might need longs pants soon... one can hope!

Favorite Links....remember the commercials are crazy, so turn off the sound until the video starts or get a pop-up blocker. The political ones are really frightening.
