How can parents help support learning in our classrooms?
If you could please make sure your child is bringing a healthy snack (crackers, fruit, granola bar) daily that would be great! If you would like to donate a snack like a box or bag of animal crackers we would love any donations for those days when some may forget their snack.
Please also make sure your child is completing their HW and turning it in by the due date. Packets for the whole month will be sent home and week by week will be due each Friday.
We would love for you to volunteer anytime in the parent resource room. We could use your help in there!
Library books are to be kept either in the book browsing bags or in the backpack when finished reading at home. The students will get to keep the book for a week or until the next checkout time.
We are here to serve your children and appreciate your support!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email.
