Oct. 31st: Classroom Halloween snack
If you would like, you can send in a treat/goody bag for each of the 24 students to take home on Halloween.    

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 ext. 7521

Image result for homework clipart Nightly homework is in your child's folder.  It will be assigned for the month and turned in at the end of each week.  Reading should be recorded nightly using the reading log- they are expected to read for 15 minutes each night. Students who complete their reading log each month will be eligible for a coupon for a free pizza from Pizza Hut. Spelling words will be assigned weekly. 

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. No loose notes

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 the pouch at the front of your child's folder.

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. 

Eating lunch with your child:   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.  We do have nut allergies in our room.

Image result for birthday clipartBirthdays: We will continue to celebrate student birthdays on the last Friday of each month.  I will contact parents of children with brithdays for each month and ask them to bring in an item for the birthday snack (something sweet, juice, plates/napkins, and sometimes a fruit and/or chips)
P.E. Days are Monday and Wednesday: Please make sure your child is wearing tennis shoes on those days

Class Dojo: We will continue to use Class Dojo this year. 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. 

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 in grades 2-5 to the cafeteria and a K-1 student to their classroom until the teacher arrives. 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. This is to ensure that others are not effected and that the room can be sanitized. 
Thank you for your cooperation!

Absences: If you are absent, please send in a signed written/typed note (emails are not sufficient) when your child returns to school.

Class Wish List:

None at this time :)
