- 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.
- 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.
