Promoting Healthy Snacks 

As part of their persuasive writing assignment, the 6th grade students are promoting healthy snack options to all DU students to encourage them to pack healthy snacks such as fruits, veggies, cheese, etc. to school. They have been busy doing surveys and flyers promoting these healthy options and they can be seen all around the school. We are asking parents to be part of this healthy eating trend and put fruits and veggies on their children’s snack menu. 

To adhere to the idea, Daarul Uloom is now offering a healthy snack options in the office. No more Hot Flamin’ chips in the office

Dismissal At dismissal time, parents are asked to pick up their child and exit the gym.  The gym is not the place to talk to another parent while your child is running around unsupervised.  Also, all teachers are on duty at this time and are unable to speak to you about your child.  Any of your child's teachers are more than willing to set up a conference time for us to speak about your child outside of the scheduled school hours.  Until 3:30, however, I am in charge of all of my students remaining in the gym and cannot talk to you at that time. Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation. 

Junior Achievement Program

Junior Achievement's unique delivery system provides the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster the chances for student success. The impact is measurable, too. Students who participate in Junior Achievement programs demonstrate a significant understanding of economics and business concepts. 

JA programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

Cold Weather Gear
Students are to dress appropriately for the cold days. As mentioned before, we will have outdoor recess daily, weather permitting. All student are expected to participate in recess when the temperature is 35 degrees or above (this includes wind chill temperatures). However, when the temperature and wind chill falls below 35 degrees, students will be kept indoors. The chilly morning is an indication that the Fall weather is here. Students will need a sweater, sweatshirt, or jacket to be able to enjoy their outdoor recess. Please make sure they have their sweater, sweatshirt, or jacket before heading to the gym for lunch/recess break. Request for a student to stay indoor based on health reasons will be honored.

Golden Dustpan Award
Once a month, one class will have the opportunity to earn the Golden Dustpan Award. This award is given to the cleanest and most organized classroom throughout the entire month.  To get the award both students and teachers need to demonstrate pride in keeping the classroom clean.

No Candy Policy
Please remember your students is not allowed to bring candy or chocolate for snack or lunch.

Lunch and Snack 
Parents are responsible for supplying their child’s daily snack and 
lunch that include drinks, napkins, and silverware. We do ask that parents to pack easy to handle, ready to eat meals. Microwaves are available for students to heat up their food. Please do not send meals that take time for the students to prepare and eat. Students are given only 20 minutes to eat and preparing lunch that requires “cooking” takes up much of that time. 

Testing Information
I will send home any books required for tests the night before the date of the test. Please do not have your child complete any work in the Math workbooks as we do them together in class. Books must be returned to class the next day. If you would like your child to take a book home to study earlier, he/she may do so independently. The book must be returned the next day or your child will lose the privilege of taking their textbooks home in the future. 

Homework Folders/Friday Folders
Homework folders should be returned to school the next day. I would like the students to learn how to be responsible for their own belongings. Without a folder, students have no place to put their new homework assignments. 10% will be deducted for each day that an assignment is late. Friday folders are due back to school on Monday. Thank you for your cooperation. 

IXL Information

By now, all parents should have received an email with login information for the IXL program. Please use this as a tool to practice first grade skills. If you have any questions or concerns, please see me.
