Polkadot Class Happenings

Week of September 3rd - 6th

What We Are Learning This Week

Social Studies

This week in social studies, we are learning about how culture is celebrated in our local communities. We will learn about various community, state, and national celebrations, such as Labor Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Thanksgiving. You can support your child at home by talking to him/her about holidays your family celebrates and the significance of those holidays.

Other Important Information

Snacks - Just a reminder that our class is a Peanut-Free Zone. Please do not pack any snacks for your child that contain nuts. Should your child have a snack that contains nuts, he/she may receive an alternative snack. A list of snack ideas is available on my website.

Beginning of the Year Forms - If you haven't done so yet, this is a friendly reminder to return your beginning of the year forms as soon as possible. The forms came home on the first day of school in a large white envelope. If you know your child's ID number, please write it on the top of every form you turn in. This will help our office staff with entering and filing your child's information. Thank you!

Running Club - Running Club begins this Tuesday, 9/03 at 7:20 a.m. on the track behind the school. It will take place Monday through Friday. All students are invited!! This is a great opportunity for your child to get in some early morning exercise! Please remind your child, if they eat breakfast at school, that they need to eat breakfast BEFORE going to running club.

Grandparents Day Lunch - Grandparent's Day Lunch is this Friday, 9/06!! Forms were due to me on Friday, August 30th. Students always love it when parents and grandparents come see them for lunch. We will see you this Friday if you signed up!

Home Transportation: If the way your child goes home changes, you must call the front office at 512-464-6794 and let them know as soon as possible or send me an email or note letting me know. Otherwise, your child will be sent home the way that was specified Home Transportation form. We cannot legally send your child home a different way without your written or verbal consent--this is for your child's safety.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
