Welcome to Reeder!The ABC’sof Kindergarten
Mrs. Lee’s ClassroomPolicies and Routines
- A successful school experience is the responsibility of the child, the parents, and the school.Your child's progress, both academically and socially, is influenced to a great extent by daily participation.Regular attendance without tardiness is critical.
- Students need to be in school as much as possible. We are building language, working on auditorydevelopment, and using hands-on materials to enhance our learning. These activities cannot be duplicated forstudents who are missing. Excessive absences hinder a child’s progress. If your child is going to be absent, you must call the office at 715-6420, by 9:00 A.M. Please try to plan family trips during our scheduledbreaks.
- Kindergartners should arrive at school no earlier than 8:25 A.M. Your child should be dropped offin front of the school and then walk to line up on the sidewalk by the wall closest to the office windows. Thefirst bell rings at 8:35 A.M. The Tardy bell rings at 8:45 A.M.
- If your child has any allergies, please make sure that we are aware of them. We especially needto know about food allergies and insect bite reactions.
- Birthdays are very important to children. In class, we will celebrate your child’s birthday in aspecial way! If your child has a summer birthday, they may pick another day to celebrate their birthday, soas not to miss out on this fun school experience.
School policy does not permit party invitations to be brought to school and shared unless everyone in the class is being invited.
Book Orders
- We will send home Scholastic book orders each month for you and your child to look over. If you want to place an order, please make checks payable to Scholastic. It may take up to two weeks for theorders to come in.
- Backpacks help your child carry folders, notes, projects, and books to and from school. Yourchild will be expected to empty their backpacks each morning. Please make sure the backpack is big enoughto hold at least a regular size of paper. We ask you to not send backpacks that have wheels.
Curriculum Night
– Reeder Elementary will be having a Kindergarten Curriculum Night on August 27
from6:00-6:45 P.M. On this night, we will go over our daily schedules and explain the Kindergarten Curriculum and yearly plan.
- Please dress your child in comfortable clothing that is appropriate for Kindergarten and theweather. During winter months, we do go outside unless the wind chill is below zero. In order for your childto play in the snow, they must have a snowsuit and snow boots.
Mrs. Beth Kohler is our counselor at Reeder. Mrs. Kohler visits all the classrooms every otherweek for a 30 minute lesson. Her lessons focus on academic, personal and social skills, such as listening,following directions, cooperation, friendship, bullying, trustworthiness and so much more! She works withstudents in small groups and is available to work with students individually as well!

- Dismissal is at 3:30 (except for Wednesdays). It is extremely important for you to call by 3:00to let us know if there are any changes in the way your child normally goes home in the afternoon. We willwalk them out the front doors and you can meet them on the sidewalk, by the flagpole.
–Our email addresses are located on our home page. We are able to check Email throughout the day,so it is really the best way to reach us. Please allow twenty-four hours for a response.
However, if you haveto get an important message to your child regarding an after school change in plans, please call the officeand they will notify us directly.
Early Dismissal
– We have early dismissal every Wednesday at 2:00 P.M. Be sure to make arrangements andtell your child care providers.
Field Trips
- Throughout the year, we will schedule field trips to enhance our curriculum. Permission slipsand requests for fees will be sent home prior to each trip. This year we hope to plan a trip to Vala’s PumpkinPatch and to the Henry Doorly Zoo. School buses will provide the transportation. Parent volunteers arewelcome to join us. No siblings may accompany us on our trips.
Friday Folders
- Notes, homework, and completed work from the school or from class will come home inthese folders. Friday folders must be returned on Mondays. Please help your child build responsibility bymaking it
their job 
to put it back in their backpacks once checked by you.
Fire Drills
- Fire drills are held on a monthly basis throughout the year. All students will participate and areexpected to walk quickly and quietly to our designated exit. We will practice and become familiar withprocedures before our first scheduled drill.
Fund Raisers
- Our school participates in several fund raisers throughout the year to raise money forvarious things for our school. These are sponsored and organized by our PTO. I hope that everyone canparticipate, but it is not required.
Goals for Life
- Each morning we start our day by reciting our “Goals for Life.” They are: I can take goodcare of myself even if I am mad. I can be productive and follow directions even if I don’t want to. I can beOK even when others are not OK.” We spend a lot of time discussing what each of these goals mean. OurKindergartens are safe and happy places where lots of learning happens. We are a classroom family whereteamwork and good relationships are expected. Positive behavior is rewarded with Gold Tickets. We willspend time learning class procedures and practicing them. Each student is expected to act within ourstandards of behavior. Problems will be dealt with one on one. If misbehaviors continue, we will contact youfor support.
