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. Any graded work or homework from over a break that is in the folder is yours to keep at home.

2. Our April book order will come home this week! You can always place an order with our online code, which is LHR38.

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 8:00 am, and children are dismissed at 2:10 pm. Please come on time, especially if your child needs breakfast. After 8:10 they will not be able to get a school breakfast. Thank you!

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

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

6. Our trip to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum is on Tuesday, April 5th! The permission slip and payment was due on Friday the 1st of April. Please send it in ASAP if you want your child to attend.
