I know it can be hard at the beginning to let go of your babies, but remember that your attitude is contagious, so please wear a smile when you drop off and try to keep good byes short at least for the first couple of weeks.
I ask that you not allow your child to bring toys from home unless it is their Show /Tell day. We will begin having Show/Tell in September and each child will have an assigned day to bring something to show to the class.
We ask that each family provide snack for us once a month. I will give you a calendar with your assigned day on it at the end of each month. If you have a problem providing the snack you are assigned please let me know.
We will be looking for parents who are interested in helping to plan and attend our class parties this year, if this is something you are interested in, please talk to me.
We are using SeeSaw this year. If you are not familiar with it, it is an app that allows me to send out reminders and announcements to all of you as a group or individually. I can also send you pictures of your child at school and examples of their work. It is a private site. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Morning drop off will be in our classroom. We will open the door at 9:10am. Parents must sign in at the office and get an ID badge to enter our campus. Please remember to sign out at the office when you leave. Afternoon pick up will be at the front gate between our building and the office. This will allow parents to pick up students and get out of the parking lot faster. We will bring students to the gate at 3:05.
We will spend the first few weeks of school getting to know each other and learning our routine. We will be meeting our Music, PE, Art and Mandarin teachers and getting to know them too.
I know this is a lot of information to take in, please do not hesitate to ask questions or discuss concerns with me.
We are looking forward to a year full of fun and learning with your children,
