Dismissal Procedure:  Classes will head outside promptly at 2:50p.m. Classes will be lined up like they do each morning in front of the school. They will be facing the playground.  Parents will park their vehicles in the parking lot and cross driveway to wait in front of the playground fence area for their child/children. The children will be dismissed by their classroom teacher.  At 3:00p.m., the bus children go to the teacher on bus duty and the rest of the children will be sent to After School Care to wait for parent pickup.  Parents will be charged a fee accordingly by ASC.

* Fabulous First Grader of the Week- Each student will be assigned a week to be the fabulous first grader of the week. An activity will be sent home for them to do. Students will be allowed to bring in a favorite book for me to read to the class. They will also have a special bag to fill with a few special things to help the class get to know them better.  As an extra special treat the student will get to eat lunch with me on Friday of his/ her special week. 

Take Home Folders: The students have a folder to make home/school communication easier. Please check these folders daily.

Homework- students will receive a weekly spelling packet consisting of one activity per night. This packet will be returned on Fridays. Students will have a weekly spelling test that coincides with the reading lessons. Spelling words will be posted on the website. In addition students will receive 2- 3 math homework assignments per week. Please have your child complete the homework and return to school the next day.

Attendance: If your child is going to be absent please call the main office. Please let me know if you would like to pick up your child’s make up work. I will send work home with a sibling whenever possible. The student will have one day for each day they were out to complete the work (ie: absent for 2 days, 2 days to finish work).

Lunch Envelopes: Lunch envelopes are sent home on Tuesday or Wednesday. Please return them in Friday for the following week. Lunch is $3 and includes milk. Milk alone is $ .50. If your child is out on Friday and they plan on buying the following week, please call Mrs. Anderson, in the main office, to add them to the lunch count. Money can be sent in with the child when they return to school.
