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.

March’s book order was placed on Monday, March 21st, 2016. 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. Be on the look-out for April’s book order

Please sign and return your child’s report card ASAP. Thank you!

Please contact me if you still need to meet with me about your child’s report card.

This Friday, April 1st, is PS 132’s ANNUAL SPRING GALA! Support the school and have an evening out with parents and teachers!
