as information on our class website. The website is easy to navigate and is
filled with a lot great information. Throughout the year many pictures will be
posted on the website so that the parents can see what is happening in our
classroom. Please check it often- changes occur regularly.
This is where you should put all money to be brought into
school (field trips, book orders, lunch or snack money, enrichment etc.) This
way we know where to find it and it doesn't get lost in the bottom of a
Duper work to keep at home.)
In the first colored sleeve you will find super duper work that
your child has completed during class. Please remove them nightly. After you
have ooed and ahhed over it we're sure that you will want to show this work
off on your refrigerator.

In the second colored sleeve you will find all of the papers
throughout the year that need to be filled out and signed. Please be sure to
fill out all of the necessary information and return it to school as soon as
possbile or by the date that it is due.

sheets. This is how you will know what we are doing in class every week. So
please be sure to read them carefully. The book orders will be coming home
once a month. This is a great way to get really nice books for your child for
a great price and we earn bonus points to get materials & books for the
classroom. It's a win, win situation!
Parent/Teacher Communication ****
This will serve as our parent/teacher communication log. This
will be for notes between us and you. Please stress to your child that this
paper is ONLY for the teacher and parent to write in. Check this
section daily and we will do the same. Please leave these notes
in the binder so that we can look back and remember any communications that we
have had. Initial all notes that you have read and we will do
the same. That way we know that all notes have been read, even when no
response is needed.
Snack & School Calendar
Your child will receive a new snack calendar once a month- this
will help you remember when your child is suppose to bring in snack. You may
bring only items that are on the approved list due to the
fact that we have a severe allergy this year. Drink can be 100% juice or milk.
School Calendar- This will help keep you informed of days off.
