When does my child have Art, Music, Phy. Ed., Library, and Computer Lab?
Please click on the Class Schedule link and check out our schedule. It's a great idea to print out a copy so you have it when making doctor and dentist appointments.Back to Top
When are the class parties? How can I help?
We have 3 parties a year: Halloween, Winter Break, and Valentine's. Each family will be asked to help with at least one of our parties. The parties will usually fall on the last Friday (or last day of the week) before the weekend or vacation break. Please let me know which party you'd like to help with.Back to Top
Can I send a birthday treat to school?
Yes, but please remember that we are a Peanut Free classroom. Out of respect for the safety of our students with food allergies, I am asking that no baked treats be sent to school for birthdays. If a baked treat is sent, I will pass it out at the end of the day and strongly encourage the students NOT to eat it until they arrive home (especially important for the bus students). If you are sending a baked treat, please send each piece in a plastic Zip-Loc bag. For store-bought treats, please check the ingredients carefully before sending anything made with peanuts, peanut oil, or any other tree nut. Again, if treats containing these items are sent to school, they will be held until the end of the school day and the children will be urged to refrain from eating them until they get home.Back to Top
Can I send birthday invitations to school so my child can hand them out?
ONLY if everyone in the class is invited. It is probably best to mail all invitations directly to the invitee since I always find several on the floor in the classroom or hallway at the end of the day. No telling how many actually make it home when they are delivered at school.Back to Top
When is Game Day?
Game Day is held the last Friday of each month unless otherwise indicated by the teacher. Children with 3 or fewer checks are eligible for Game Day. Those children that are in danger of not being able to participate have the opportunity to erase a check mark with demonstrations of superior character or extra learning projects. Children earn checkmarks when homework is late, STINGER binders are forgotten, or they exhibit poor behavior choices.Back to Top
When are book orders due?
Our book orders are due on Fridays. A check is necessary fororders submitted - NO CASH. If you wish to, beginning with October's order, you have the opportunity to order directly on-line. Please see the hand-out I send home with the book orders. Any further questions should be directed to Mrs. Stelly. Our next book order will come home at the beginning of next month.Back to Top
Does my child have to eat a snack at Milk Break?
No, but be aware that if you do send a snack in for Milk Break, it MUST be in its original packaging WITH THE INGREDIENTS LABEL!!! This is so that I can check to make sure the snack complies with our Peanut Free list. I cannot in good conscience allow any child to eat a snack that may contain peanuts or tree nuts, so if there is no label, I will not allow that snack to be eaten in the classroom. Remember, it may be an inconvenience for those of us who aren't allergic, but it's life and death for those who are! If at all possible, send in the entire box of snacksall at once so that I only have to check the ingredient label once.I will store the snack boxes in my cupboard so that your child cansimply go to the cupboard each day to get their snack. I will senda note home when your child's snack runs out.Back to Top
