Vision and Hearing Screenings
Campus vision and hearing screenings are coming up this Tuesday, 09/12 for PK, KG, 1st, 3rd and 5th grade students as well as any new students in 2nd and 4th grade. Please make every effort to be present. Also, if your student requires prescription glasses or contacts, please be sure they have these on the day of screening for accurate results.
Homework Begins! Math homework begins this week. Students will receive their math homework on Monday. They should complete one section per night. For example, they will complete Monday's section on Monday, Tuesday's section on Tuesday, etc.
Tardy Information: The first bell rings at 7:35 and the second bell (the tardy bell) rings at 7:40. If your child is not in the classroom at 7:40, he/she is counted tardy. Please allow a few extra minutes in your morning schedule to allow for walking down the hall after drop-off.
Snacks: Students may bring a healthy snack each day. Our snack time is short, so please bring snacks that can be eaten quickly and easily. Examples of healthy snacks are cheese sticks, goldfish crackers, chopped vegetables, or peeled and sliced fruit. Sugary foods such as candy, cookies, cakes, chips, etc. are not allowed for snack time. Please do not send any peanut or nut items for snack time.
P.E.: Students are asked to wear or bring tennis shoes each day for their P.E. rotation. Second graders have P.E. each day for 25 minutes.
Birthday Celebrations: Food items are not allowed for birthday celebrations. If you would like to send something to honor your child, please choose items such as pencils, stickers, or possibly a book donation to the library.
Take-Home Folders: Please check your child's purple take-home folder each day. This is where you will find homework, any notes that need to go home, and graded papers.
