This week we have P.E. on Wednesday. Please make sure your child wears tennis shoes on P.E. days for their safety.

Attendance—Please remember to send a note to school following any absence. Snack—Please remember to pack a snack everyday. Lunch is not until 12:08 and working brains need some refueling in between. Class snack is not provided and is the responsibility of individual students. Transportation Changes—It is required that I have direct written or verbal communication regarding any change in transportation. Students will be sent with their regular transportation without notification from a parent/guardian. Please try to make any changes before 1 pm. Please call the office directly at 512-414-2537 with a transportation change as I do not always get to check phone messages or emails. Homework Folders—Homework folders come home daily. Your child is required to read at least 20 minutes a day and record what they read in their reading log and requires a parent signature. Homework is assigned by the fifth grade teachers 2-3 times a week. Homework is due the day after it is assigned. You can check for Language Arts homework at www.teamzecca.weebly.com.
