Wednesday September 7th is our first day in first grade. Doors open at 8:25. To ease your child's anxiety please discuss with your first grader the following;
Snacks- I serve a simple snack each day at 9:50 am. I must have a signed parent permission slip before I can do this. Sign your slip and return it to me during Meet the Teacher Night.
Lunch- Students may bring a cold lunch from home, or eat hot lunch from the cafeteria. You may pay for hot lunches in the office, or in the cafeteria before school begins, 8:15-8:35 daily.
How am I going home?- Please tell your child if you are picking them up, or if they are riding the bus each day. Please call the office before 2:30 pm if your plans change! The office will notify me so I do not put your child on the bus!
Backpacks- Please send your child with an "empty" backpack daily. I send notes/completed work home every afternoon. Reading homework will start soon, and I want to establish a daily routine.
My first graders independently;
1. empty their mailboxes (notes, corrected papers, art work)
2. place their mail in their backpack
3. bring an empty backpack the next day
