Things to Know

Welcome to Mrs. Joiner’s Kindergarten

AGENDA

The agenda needs to be signed daily by a parent. There is a place for signatures by each date. The agenda will show your child’s behavior for the day. Happy face______ great day. Straight Face______ received a warning and Sad Face_______ needs to work on changing a negative behavior. The agenda will also serve as a means of communication between the teachers and the parents. (See attached Clip Chart Behavior System)

HOMEWORK

Homework packets are given out on Monday to be returned on the following Monday. Do homework together and keep it fun. Please do not send in sloppy or incorrect work. Homework is given for skill reinforcement only and will not be graded. Going over homework and having your child make the appropriate corrections, creates good study habits.

EARN TALLIES

Every week your child is given the opportunity to win Tallies for their table by having mini contest or showing good behavior. At the end of the week, the winning table gets a treat.

TRANSPORTATION

If your child is going to be transported from school other than the usual way, please write a note in the agenda. If it is a last minute arrangement, please notify office at: 859.282.4620. NEVER change transportation needs via email. I am teaching not checking emails.

LUNCH

School lunches are $2.00 per day. If you plan for your child to buy a lunch, send money in an envelope or zip lock bag marked with the amount sent and student’s name. Our Lunch time is 12:40pm-1:10pm
