Each night your child will bring home two books in their R.E.D. Folder. One is a student choice book and the other is a teacher choice book. Please read the books with your child every night. After reading, ask your child 2-3 comprehension questions from the list provided for each book. After your child reads the books fluently and correctly, write the titles of the books, the date, and your signature on the reading log. Please remember to return the books to school in your child’s R.E.D. Folder EVERY DAY. After your child returns the books, we will replace them with 2 more books. Once your child fills the front and back of their reading log, they can choose a prize out of the prize box!
Backpacks and Communication Folders
Each day your child needs to bring their green R.E.D. Folder and backpack to school. The R.E.D. folder will be used as a means for communication between home and school.
Please place all items that need to be returned to school in this folder and be sure to check the folder every night!
**PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR CHILD’S R.E.D. FOLDER EACH AND EVERY NIGHT!!**
We will have recess daily after lunch. Children need to dress appropriately for the weather. Shoes without backs or flip flops are not safe for school inside or outside. In case of inside recess, the children will be able to play games in the classroom.
Your child is welcome to bring in a healthy snack to school. They will be given 10 minutes to eat the snack so please send in something that can be finished in that time. We also recommended sending in water with your child.
If your child has a birthday during the school year, you may celebrate his or her birthday during lunch. If you would like to send a healthy snack in, please make sure the snack is here by 11:05 (lunch time). If your child has a summer birthday and wishes to celebrate during the school year, please just let me know and we will choose a day to celebrate. Please do not send birthday invitations to school unless everyone is being invited. It causes too many hurt feelings. Thank you for your help in this matter.
If you need to pick up a child early from school, please send a note with your child that day. In addition, a note must accompany any changes in transportation.
