PE Shoes! Please send your child to school in tennis shoes for PE. They will be unable to participate without the proper shoes. Our PE days are Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Library Books: Please make sure your child brings their library book to exchange for a new book every Wednesday. If they do not return their book they will not be able to check out a new book.

Reader Bags: PLEASE make sure your child's reading bag is sent to school EVERY day. I meet with each group daily and will not be able to send a new book home if the last book is not returned. Also, please know that each book is part of a set so please help your child keep up with their guided reading books. Thank you!!!

Snacks: We have snack everyday. Please send your child to school with a snack. I have a few backup snacks for those that don't bring snack, but my supplies are limited. Thank you!
