FYI Workshop Time / Colored Bands
Workshop is a free time for the children to choose play/activity.
During this time, I am teaching, assessing, helping students individually and/or small groups.
Children are given a band to put on their wrist as a reminder to lower their voices.
If a child gets three bands, then they are asked to sit for a few minutes.

Kindergarten students will be dismissed 3:05 pm.
Please walk up to pick your child up from me.
Our hope is for all the little ones to be dismissed
before the car lines begins to move.

Mr. Costante has given this considerable thought and considered options

for a safe dismissal procedure for inclement weather for our youngest students.
Inclement Weather - Procedure
The kindergarten children will follow the same pick-up pattern as the rest of the school.

Please pass this information to your family and friends
that pick your child/children up at dismissal.
Thank You

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank You
