Homework Folder: Each student will have a "Homework Folder." that they return to school every Friday in order to turn in the weekly homework. I will return it on Monday with a new homework sheet.

Classroom newsletter: I will be sending out a weekly newsletter to let you know what we have on tap for the upcoming week. Look for one every Friday.

Birthdays: Our class celebrates each student's birthday! For those students with birthdays on a weekday, we will celebrate them that day. For birthdays that fall on the weekends, we will celebrate on the Friday before. And we will celebrate summer birthdays throughout the month of May. You can send birthday treats (prepackaged, not messy) if you want, but it's totally optional.

Lunch: Kindergartners will eat lunch from _____ . Your child can bring lunch from home or choose a hot lunch option. District 91 is offering free lunches to students again this year. There are two school lunch options everyday that your child can choose from. Visit the school district’s website at to view the lunch menu or just know that a lunch menu will also come home with your child in their Homework Folder monthly, after this first month.

All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don't hit people.
4. Put things back where you found them.
6. Don't take things that aren't yours.
7. Say you're SORRY when you HURT somebody.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
9. Flush.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life - learn some and and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.”
