Can my child celebrate his/her birthday at school?
We will be discussing birthday celebrations at Back to School Night.
What does my child need for school?
Please look at supply list to see what your child needs for first grade.
How will I know about my child's progress?
You may contact me at any time to discuss your child's progress. I can be reached by phone(ext. 74119) or email. I will also have scheduled conferences in the fall and report cards are sent out four times a year.
What should I do if my child is sick and will not be attending school?
Please call the school nurse and report your child absent. You may leave a message on her voice mail. Please remember they need to be 24 hours FEVER FREE before returning! Please contact school nurse for anything Covid related.
I need to change my child's dismissal for the day. What should I do?
Please write a note and let me know how your child will be going home. You can also call me and leave me a message before 2:30, or send me an email. If you do not hear back from me, please call the office to make sure that I know of the change in dismissal.
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!
I want to order books from Scholastic Book Club. What are the procedures for ordering books?
I will send the Scholastic Book Club order form home about once a month. Please return your order within one week from the time you receive it. I cannot accept cash. Please send a check made out to Scholastic Book Club. You can also order online.
My child has been absent from school due to illness. How can I receive the work she or he missed?
I will save the missed work and will send it home with your child upon his/her return. Please complete the missed work over the next few evenings. If you would like to pick up work, please call me the day before you plan to pick it up.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions!
