Friday Folders: A large ziplock bag will be sent home each Friday. Your child’s work from the week will be placed in the bag along with a sheet the parent needs to sign. Please take the work out of the bag and sing the sheet. Send the bag and signed sheet back to school by the following Monday.
Homework: A packet will be sent home each Wednesday and needs to be returned the following Wednesday in their homework folder. Homework will consist of a reading log, language arts, math, and handwriting practice.
Snacks: Please send one each day even if your child is getting hot lunch.
Super Kid: Each week a Super Kid will be chosen. The Super Kid will take home a poster on Friday of the week before. Please fill in the poster and return it by Monday the week of your Super Kid day. Super Kids are recognized at Town Hall on the Friday of their week. After Town Hall parents, of the Super Kid, are invited to come into the classroom. The Super Kid can bring in a “me” box to share with 3-4 items and they may also bring a treat to share with the class.
