The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

We are planning on watching the animated version of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas movie on Tuesday December 20th. This movie is rated PG, so we wanted to make you aware. Please reach out to me if you are not comfortable with your child watching it. If I do not hear from you we will assume your child is okay to watch it.

Our Celebrations...

At Schofield Elementary, students can earn badges for positive behavior as a class or individually. Our next class goal is to earn 200 badges. We currently have 187 badges.

Snack Week

Please make sure to send enough food for 4 days on your snack week. We have 19 students in our class. Please do not send in any peaches due to an allergy.

Thank you for contributing to our classroom!

Handle With Care Message...

If your family is experiencing difficulties at home, I would love to provide additional support at school for your child. I understand that you are not always able to share details and that's perfectly okay. If your child is coming to school after a difficult night, morning or weekend, please send me a quick message saying "Handle With Care". Nothing else will be said or asked. This will let me know that your child may need extra time, patience or help during the day. My priority is to provide a safe learning environment for your child.
