Week of February 8th, 2016


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

Homework packets will come home on Monday, and are due back to school on Friday.

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.

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

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!

The children and I are looking for “Star Readers” and “Arts & Craft” volunteers. A letter from our classroom mommies was placed in your child’s homework folder. If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the bottom portion of the letter, or email our classroom mommies.

February’s book order was placed in your child’s homework folder on Monday, February 1st, 2016. This month, every student received a free $5.00 book if you spend $10.00. The coupon was stapled to the book order. If you would like to place your order online, our class code is LQ7KR. Online orders can be placed at any time, but will be submitted by me on the due date. The due date is Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Next week we are celebrating Respect for All @ PS 132. Students will listen and respond to stories about bullying and respect. Have your child wear blue on Thursday to support anti-bullying, and come to school dressed as a super hero on Friday.
