Classroom Needs

Each of us has some items we still need for our classroom. If you would like to donate, please contact your child's teacher and we can give you a list of some things we need.

MANY of you have already donated supplies to our classroom and we appreciate it so very much! THANK YOU!

Friday Folders

Friday Folders went home for the first time today. These folders are intended to help you track your child's behavior. We appreciate you reviewing this folder with your child each week to celebrate their strengths and discuss areas in which they may need to work on. Please review/sign these over the weekend and have them back at school by Monday.


A large envelope of important documents was sent home with your child on Monday.

If you would like to make lunch restrictions on your child's account, you will need to indicate your wishes on the lunch sheet that was included in the envelope.

Try discussing this new concept of grit with your child at home. They might share what they have already learned about grit this week at school!
