Image result for homework clipart  Homework is assigned typically for the nights Monday-Thursday. Reading logs are assigned monthly. Please record their reading on this calendar- they are expected to read for 10 minutes each night.  Math homework will be assigned weekly. Please send it completed in your child's folder on Fridays.

Teacher websites and the child's Daily Folder are the main forms of communication between school and home. Please make sure your child's folder is in their book bag every day. If you have any concerns, feel free to email me or call (336)229-0909

Lunch:  Make sure that you are paying and ordering your child's lunch at the same time. I have had some instances where there is money in the child's account, but no orders have been made.  Please be sure to check that orders and money have gone through. All orders are due online by Thursday night at midnight for the upcoming school week.  Lunch cost is $3.75 and includes a milk.  If your child does not have a lunch and has not pre-ordered they will get PB&J with chips, milk, and fruit for a charge of $3.75.
Class Dojo: We will use Class Dojo this year in order to communicate between home and school about your child's behavior and send reminders/ notes home . Beginning the week of August 20th please check Dojo for classroom announcements, updates on your child's behavior, or to send me a quick note.  I will adjust the points and warnings to best reflect the behaviors I see in class. 

NOTES and CHANGES: Please make sure that you are discussing with your child their lunch and transportation routine. Communicate to us any changes to your child's routine in writing. Please place on parent log in the Daily Folder or send me a note on Dojo. 

MONEY: Parents if you are sending in money for anything- please label it with your child's name and what it is for (book order, t-shirt money, lunch account) so that we know where it is intended to go. All money should be zipped in a bag or closed in an envelope inside the folder. 

Eating lunch with your child:   Beginning in October you are welcome to join us for lunch on Fridays and bring food from off campus if you want. Please do not send in outside food for your child to eat on any other day.

Snack:We will have snack everyday, please send one for your child (healthy food/drink).  Due to allergies we will not provide a class snack for everyone.  
P.E. Days are Monday and Friday: Please make sure your child is wearing tennis shoes on those days

Morning drop-off: 
Parents please do not allow your kids to leave the car until 7:30. IF you have a HS or MS student at RMA they may get out at 7:20 with them. The older sibling is responsible for walking the elementary student into the gym. All grade levels will remain in the gym and be dismissed to class. RMA does offer morning care before 7:30am for a fee.  If your child is dropped off early on more than one occasion, they will have to attend morning care and parents will be responsible for paying the fee.

lSick Bug!!!


 Please be aware of the protocol for sick students.
If your child throws up here at school, we will send them home. If your child has a fever over 100.1, your student will be sent home!
They are to be fever and throw up free for 24 hours before returning to school. 
Thank you for your cooperation!
