    Class Birthdays 

    Parents and grandparents are welcome to bring in birthday treats according to the following guidelines:

    • Non-food items are highly encouraged over food items (i.e. stickers, pencils, etc.).
    • Parents MUST provide at least a 24 -hour notice to the classroom teacher and office by sending a note or calling the school if a birthday celebration will include a food item. This is to allow notification of parents of students with food allergies.
    • Any food (cake, cupcakes, donuts) MUST be store-bought , with a clear label that includes allergy information .
    • In an effort to make sure our students with food allergies are included in all birthday celebrations, the 24 hour notice will be strictly enforced. If prior notice is not given, birthday treats will not be allowed in the classroom until the following day.

    Specials (Conference Time) 1:40-2:35 

    Our Specials time is from 10:30-11:20 . We will rotate specials classes each day.  Please make sure students are dressed appropriately on P.E. days.

    PE shoes will be required every Friday as well as on PE Days. 


    Grades and Report Cards 

    Report cards are handed out every nine weeks.    



    Parents are required to personally deliver all medications to the school nurse.  

     Please do not send any medications (including cough drops) to school with your child. 


    Students leaving school early 

    If you need to pick your child up early from school, you MUST sign them out in the office and have the office staff call down to our room to dismiss your child.   

    School policy does not allow me to release your child directly from the classroom. 


    Teacher Requests 

     Please label your child’s school supplies (this includes coats and lunch boxes). 

     Please help your child remember their lunch number or student ID number. Students use this number for lunch and when using school computers/software. 


    I look forward to teaching your child this year and helping to make their  

    first-grade experience a positive and successful one.  

    If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to contact me.  THANKS so much for sharing your child with me this year!
