Parent Notes

IMPORTANT! Your child needs to bring a bag lunch and beverage to school on Thursday due to our late return from the Children's Theater. We will not be back in time to get lunch from the cafeteria. Also, please make sure your child has a good breakfast on Thursday. We will be back by approximately 1:00 which is later than we normally eat.

Please help your child practice spelling words at home each week. The sight words are much harder at this point and they take some additional practice. Remember to use the spelling choices found in your child's folder for practice ideas.

The school will be implementing changes to the recess/lunch/coats issue. We hope it will improve the process. Remember that your child needs to be able to manage their outdoor clothing without much assistance at school. You can help by working with them at home to be independent. It is a HUGE job for them at school and can be very overwhelming for them.

Thanks for all you do for your children!
