Restroom


 

Please remind your child to use the restroom before school begins each day. We will remind them before recess and lunch. Students will be allowed to sign out to use the restroom during instructional time as per district policy. Your  teacher may send home a note at the end of the week if your student has left the room multiple times in the week. Instructional time is precious, and leaving the room for 10 minutes may impact learning.

You can access our online grade books at any time to see your student's scores as tests are given. First trimester parent/teacher conferences will be scheduled online during which we will discuss your child's progress and report card. In addition to three report cards, progress reports will be sent home mid-way through each trimester, so you will receive a written report every six weeks of school. Please feel free to contact your child's teacher at any time if you have questions or concerns

Clothing


 

Please label all items that might be lost at school with your child's name. (Lost items may be claimed from the lost in found in the cafeteria.) Review our dress code in the Parent/Student Handbook, as students wearing inappropriate clothing must be sent to the office to change.

 

Your child should be able to tie his/her own shoes and must wear clothes that can be managed independently when using the restroom.

 

Reminder: no spaghetti strap shirts or sandals without a back strap. Children must wear shoes that are appropriate for physical activity


 

Our school participates in an accelerated reader program. This program tests students reading and gives them an independent reading level. From there students can check out books from the library, classroom, or even read books from home in order to gain points. If students reach their point and comprehension goals and the end of the trimester they receive a special reward!

 

To quickly check the book level and points of a book you have at home click here.

 

To login to students accelerated reader accounts from home  click here.

Here you and your child can see their book level, goals, and comprehension score. 

Water and Snack


     
You may wish to send a small, healthy snack and bottle of water with your child. Students must keep snack items in their backpacks or designated snack basket until recess time. Students can eat their snack an either recess under the shade structure on the playground. Please make sure water bottles are able to close so they do not spill. Water bottles are especially important on hot days and days your child has PE. 

Birthdays


 

 

If you choose to send in a birthday treat for the class, check the district Wellness Guide.. Keep in mind that district policy does not allow us to pass out homemade food treats.

To avoid hurt feelings, students may not pass out any party invitations on campus! If you would like another way to pass out invitations please contact your child's teacher.
