    Can I contribute a snack to the classroom?

    • You may contribute a bagged snack for our classroom. We do not have a regularly scheduled snack time but we often need a little time to enjoy a snack. We can even snack when we are working!!

       Will my child have homework?

    • Your child will have homework Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. In addition to their assignments, PLEASE practice the reading words each night for five or ten minutes. I will be sending home suggestions to help make that practice more enjoyable. On special nights your child will be asked to read their story from their school reader. Please remember to only read the assigned story. Reading ahead will interfere with future classroom activities especially predicting!
