Thank you families who pack lunch and afternoon snack items separately. Several children bring these items in one bag and are confused as to what they should save for snack and sometimes eat all that is in their lunch bag if the items are packed together. Consequently there isn't a snack for later and they become upset. Please remember to pack lunch in one lunch bag/box and afternoon snack in a different container (bag, box, different section of the back pack, etc.).
Please remember to speak with your child about lunch. The children should know if they are buying or bringing. If they are buying, they should know what they are buying. Please help them out so their independent skills will continue to grow and grow and grow.
Please practice opening and closing lunch boxes and drink containers and/or water bottles.
If your child is absent from school, please be sure to send in an absence note upon your child's return to school. You need to do this even if you call the nurse. This is a New York State requirement.
If you are sending correspondence to school, please be sure that your child's name is on it, as well as what it is for. This includes trip permission slips and fees, book orders, PTA functions, and any correspondence that needs to go to the Main Office. It is difficult to find the owner when there isn't a name to be found.
Please remember to have your child wear sneakers and comfortable attire on the days in which Physical Education is part of our schedule.
Please remember to check your child’s folder each and every night. This is a very important method of communication between school and home. Please be sure to put any correspondence, homework, etc. in the folder. The children bring their folders to school and check them in school every day.
Please practice tying shoes.
Please remember to read to your child every day. Endless studies show the more children are read to in the early years, the more successful readers they become. Thank you to everyone!
