Folder/Homework: Each night, a special folder will go home and needs to be returned each day. Items in the “Keep” side of the folder will include notes from school and graded work. Please take those out each evening, look through them, send anything back to school that is needed, and keep the graded items at home. Items on the “return” side will include your child’s daily behavior calendar, which needs to stay in the folder all month. Also in the “return” side, you will find any homework assignments or notes that need returned. A nightly reading assignment will begin the second or third week of school, and any other unfinished work from the day will be sent home to be completed and returned.
Discipline Program: Enclosed is a copy of the behavior management system that I use in my classroom. Please read through it. I think your child will really have fun earning class points for prizes.
Room Record: Please complete the enclosed Room Record form. It will help me get to know your child a little better and also give me important contact and health information. Please return it on the first day of school.
Birthdays: Mr. Cavanaugh is asking us to only serve clear liquids, such as Capri Sun, to help preserve the carpet. Please let me know a week in advance when you are wanting to send/bring treats, so that I can block off time in our schedule. We usually have treats around 2:45.
Snacks: This year we are asking each child to provide his/her own snack each day. We will have snack time for a quick snack right after our first recess. Please send an item in your child’s backpack that is quick to eat. Individually wrapped items of goldfish crackers, a granola bar, pop tart, or crackers are the easiest. Please do not send anything that would require refrigeration or a spoon.
Water bottles: I allow water bottles in the room that have a lid. Students may only fill them with water. They will be sent home every Friday to be washed. Please label it with your child’s name.
If you have any questions or concerns, please give me a call at school or send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to a great year!!!
