A Letter From The Editor: Mrs. Scheperle

We are off to a great start! Our first full week of school went great! Here area few notes for the upcoming week:

-Your child may bring a water bottle to keep at their desk. It must be water and it must have a lid that closes completely.

-We will have snack every day until January. Donations of snacks would be greatly appreciated. It needs to be something that feeds 20 students and milk free. (cereal, crackers, goldfish...)

-Please remember to send your child's folder and backpack to school each day. If you could make sure to empty to folder each evening I would appreciate it. Also, please remember to tell your child to give me any notes, lunch money, etc... that you have put in the folder.

That's it for now!

Have a SUPER week!

Mrs. S.

Check your child's folder for their sight word homework. Instructions are included. Also, books will start to come home soon. Please follow the suggestions for reading with your child that were in your parent handbook.

When your child is doing something well, try saying (for example) "You picked up your room so you can play something else. That was helpful!" This helps notice their helpful contribution in a meaningful way.
