January 11 – Early Release Day

Students are dismissed from school at 12:15.  Sack lunches can be ordered through Food Service and will be sent home with your child.  Please make sure your child knows if he or she needs to order a sack lunch.  Feel free to send me an e-mail so I know to order a lunch for your child.

A few reminders:

Library: Our check out day is on Friday. Please help your first grader find his/her library book and make sure that it is returned to school. Right now, our class can check out any books from the picture book section, nonfiction section, and chapter books now too. These books are just for fun and can be read with your child.

Snacks: We eat snacks throughout the day. Please send in two healthy snacks so that your child stays fueled for learning.  Don’t forget a water bottle, too!

Recess: We go outside for a lunchtime and end of the day recess every day unless it is raining or the “feels like” temperature is below zero degrees. Please send your child to school with boots, hats, gloves, snow pants, and coats every day. Even if there isn’t snow on the ground, spending 30 minutes outside can get really chilly.

Sweatshirts: Our classroom can be on the chilly side so if your child would like to bring a sweatshirt to keep in their locker or on the back of their chair, that would be no problem!

Transportation Changes: If your child will be leaving school a different way than normal or if your child will be leaving early for an appointment, be sure to send a note in his or her blue folder or call the office to let us know of the changes before 3:00 pm.

Take Home Books:  Remember to return your child’s take home book back to school each day, so he or she can choose a new one to bring home.  The kids take care of this job each morning.  If you notice that your child isn’t bringing a new book home, send me an e-mail and I can send home a new bag.
