details about school/classroom procedures.

Your child should have a cloth napkin, snack, and lunch in one lunch box every day.
The cloth napkin is used on the table to place his/her food.
The snacks allowed in the morning are: fresh fruits, vegetables, Cheez-It, pretzels, and goldfish.
Please send water to school every day (no ice cubes).  A reusable water bottle is acceptable.
Most backpacks have a side pocket or a front compartment to put the water bottle.
You may pack another drink in the lunch box for lunch or buy milk for 50 cents.
Please pack needed supplies for your child's food: such as spoons, forks, straws, napkins...
Thank you for your cooperation in following these guidelines.

Just a Reminder: Students may not wear scented lotions, gels, hair products, and perfumes.
Please be mindful of all scented products because I am allergic and this may trigger an asthma attack. Thank you

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
