  • Parents please be reminded that all undershirts under uniform shirt must be white.
  • ALL homework books and assignments should be signed and dated by parents.
  • Students should have at 3 - 5 sharpened pencils for school each day (this is a daily homework and should be a part of the packing routine). Sharpening pencils during class time is not allowed as sharpeners are not allowed (until I get an electric one)
  • Each student should have a glue stick (we do a lot of cutting and pasting and the glue stick is easier to work with), crayons or colored pencils, scissors, and a big eraser. (The pencil erasers do NOT last long).
  • 8 TENNIS BALLS. THIRTEEN down 7 more to go.
  • There is no morning playtime children should proceed from the car directly to the classroom to begin bell-work.

Parents, I do a lot of interactive notebook activities with my students. This requires a lot of ink and paper. The school can do some but not all. I have my own printers/copiers in my class. I need your assistance to help defray the cost of the paper and ink.

This is not a demand or a must. If you can assist, great! If you can't, no problem. Whatever you can do will be greatly appreciated.
