Weekly Reminders...

*Wednesday and Thursday this week are half days of school.  This is a 12:00 dismissal.  Please send in a morning snack still.  If your child is attending after care then please pack extra snacks and a lunch for them!

*Friday is the last day of school!  This is an 11:00 dismissal.  There is NO after care today!  NO book bags or lunch boxes are needed today!

*Please remember when sending in your re-registration form to include the $150 re-registration fee. 

*1st grade has gym every Friday this year.  Please wear gym uniforms to school on Fridays.

*The children will need to be responsible for remembering if they are buying lunch or not.  If you feel as if your child will have a hard time remembering then please send me an email or a note at the beginning of each week to let me know what specific days your child is purchasing lunch.   

*Remember that all paper stories do count as a homework assignment when they come home.  The child should be reading it to someone in the house.  The adult that it was read to should be signing or initialing it on the front cover.  It gets sent back to school for credit.  At the end of each trimester it will count as an oral reading grade.
