First Grade Snack?
We eat a snack EVERY DAY in First Grade. They need something to eat in
addition to their lunch. They need a snack even on hot lunch days. Please
choose: fruit, cheese, crackers, pretzels, or something else that is NOT a
When can my child bring in a birthday treat?
Birthday treat days are assigned for each child. They will be assigned
either their birthday or a school day closest to their birthday.
These notes will come home in their Friday Folders at the beginning
of each month. Allergy students will have a copy of these dates so
they can bring in a substitute treat for themselves.
Why do you use sign language?
I am not a trained ASL teacher. I use several books and web sites to find
the correct signs (we do not make them up) for use in the classroom. I call
the ASL we use "classroom sign language". :) I use sign to make them look at
me. This is a great way to get them in the habit of looking at me with their
eyes for directions. So often when I use my voice, I'm talking to the backs
of their heads. Plus, they love signing and I do too. It's fun!
We are going out of town, can I get their work??
Yes, if you give me at least 1 week notice. I will put together all of the
make up work. If I take the time to assemble the work, it is DUE the day
your child returns to school. NO late work will be taken.
My Child has an appointment...can they be ready early and have their work?
Yes. Please send us a note prior to the date they are leaving early. We
will have them packed and ready to go in the office waiting for pick up.
How do I get in touch with Ms. K?
The best way to get information to me is through the homework folder. These
folders are checked by 8:15 am. I check email twice a week, 10:30 on Tuesday,
while they are at art and 12:30 on Friday during parent reader.
