Meet Oscar

This fuzzy bunny has joined our family to remind us to maintain an environment of calm, peace, low volume, and safe movements. Our 4th grade classroom is currently caring for Oscar and have said he is "teaching us to pay attention to moving around calmly and paying attention to how we move and speak". Oscar may be making his rounds to other classes throughout the spring. Caring for a pet teaches patience and responsibility and we are excited to provide this opportunity. Students are eager to help by bringing in items for Oscar, please let us know if you have any specific questions. We want to make sure that the items coming in are healthy for Oscar.

Oscar's Wishlist

  • Recycled paper bedding
  • raw vegetables (carrots, lettuce greens, raddichio, radish tops, or sprouts)
  • berries, nectarines, plums
  • rabbit chew toys (apple sticks, timothy hay braids)
  • timothy hay (loose)

Attendance & Tardies

If your child is absent or tardy, please send a note in to the teacher or email with an excuse. Documenting why students are out helps us keep accurate records. If you receive a letter about unexcused absences, you can submit notes for previous dates as indicated on the letter. If you chose to self-quarantine, you will need to send in a note. We thank you for your patience as we all work together to help Ms. Kett keep accurate records off site. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call us at 350-2900.
