Entering the Building
During drop off we ask that you stay in your car and let the teachers help your child come into the building. We want to foster independence for your children- walking into the building is a task that they can do by themselves.
If you need to speak to the teachers please e-mail or schedule an appointment. We want your input about child's education and concerns . During arrival and dismissal may not be the best time to speak to us because our focus is your child safety.
A Rainbow of PK
Thank you for supporting us as we try to make learning our colors fun. We have had students wearing the color of the day. This has made learning fun- students have been able to tell their teachers if they are wearing a specific color and even name the article of clothing that they were wearing that had the color of the day. We will continue dressing in a different colors each day for the next couple of weeks. This is to give our student a better understanding of the color, makes it real to them and best of all it is fun. Please if you can dress your child in the color of the day. If you don't have an item of clothing to match for that day it is fine. We do not want you to go out and buy something for one day.
Here is the schedule of colors.
September 23-Rainbow Day
Just to let you know the teachers will be dressing in the color of the day too!
Mac The Fox
MAC the Fox will come home with your child for 1 week. We will send MAC home on Monday and your child will return him on Friday.
There is a notebook in the backpack with the fox. Please take the fox on a simple adventure then photograph it, draw or write about the experience. We have already started the journals with our weekend with the fox as an examples.
This is suppose to be a fun family activity. Please keep our fox safe. Your child will share their time with the fox on Friday in a whole group time.
For Our Whole Day Parents
LABEL MEALSWe need your assistance with lunch boxes. We need to have your child's two meals CLEARLY marked. On the container write BREAKFAST and LUNCH.
Please wash nap time blankets and return to school on Monday. There is nothing like napping on clean fresh bedding.
Dismissal in the Little Horseshoe Drive Way
Have you noticed we are getting faster? As all the parents and students learn about dismissal, we are getting faster. Inclement weather will slow us down again. We will keep your children under the edge of the building. Therefore, it will take us a few seconds longer walking your children to your cars. Please be patient and keep to our dismissal routine.Once again,we are trying to keep things safe for everyone around the school. The newest change will require your to stay in one line. This will mean waiting in line with kindergarten and 1st grade parents until you reach our horseshoe driveway. Please do not do a double line and cross over the center line to move into our small horse shoe driveway. Our goal is first and foremost is to keep your children safe. Please have your car tag hanging off the inside car mirror. Secondly make only one line closest to the preK playground. If you park next to the street we will not place your child in the car. Most of all please stay in your car. This is a moving line, if you need to please pull up and move out of line to buckle your child. If you have parked please do not remove your children from our line. We need to know who has them. Once again it is a matter of keeping your children safe.
Meal Time Accounts
You will need your students id number. If you don't have that already please email your teacher and they will be happy to give it to you.
If you have applied for free or reduced lunch please know it could take a few weeks to get that status established on your account. Your child may end up with a balance that you will need to pay.
