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 February book order should be in this week! You can always place an order with our online code, which is LHR38.

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 ziploc bag labeled with your child’s name as soon as possible. In addition if your child has used their change of clothes please send in a replacement!

6. 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!

7. We have our trip to see The History of Toys this Thursday! Please send in your permission slip and $10

as soon as possible! Thank you:)

8. This Friday is the 100th day of school! I can’t wait to see everyone’s amazing hat creations!
