Just A Few Reminders…

1. Please remember to check your child’s folder daily and send back all forms that must be completed the next school day.

2. Our December book club order will come home this week! You can always place an order with our online code, which is HHM73.

3. Attendance and arriving to school on time is imperative. Attending school regularly is important to ensuring children develop a strong foundation for subsequent learning. Just a reminder that our school day begins at 8:00am, and children are dismissed at 2:10pm

4. Please remember we have snack every day in the afternoon. Please provide a healthy snack for your child in a labeled bag.

5. I am still missing a change of clothes for some students. Please send in a change of clothes in a zip lock bag labeled with your child’s name as soon as possible.

6. Please return signed Report Cards as soon as possible.

7. Food Allergies: If your child has a food allergy, please send in a current picture and write the kind of allergy on the back. For your child’s safety, it is of the utmost importance that this information is kept up-to-date in the cafeteria. Thank you!

8. Go to our class shutterfly page to check out the new pictures and/or videos!

Thank you to Taylor’s mom, our class mommy, for uploading so beautiful photos from the feast!

10. Our walking field trip to Cooper Park is tomorrow morning. Dress warmly, it looks like it is going to be chilly! If you are coming with us (and everyone is welcome!) we will see you at 8:30 tomorrow morning.
