This year we will have “Guardian Angels”.  Each child will be paired with an older child who will be his/her guardian angel all year.  There will be many activities throughout the year when your child’s “angel” will help him/her and just be there to be a friend.  More information will come as we get into the school year.

We go to church once each month.  We will start with Mass on the first day of school.  Since Physical Education will not start right away your child should wear their regular uniform on Monday instead of a gym uniform.  The second Mass will be planned by the Kindergarten class and the eighth grade class.  Watch for the date in the newsletter.

We are in need of bird seed.  We feed the birds outside our window so black oil bird seed (or other bird mix), thistle (for the goldfinch and chickadees), and suet for all the birds especially in the winter months would be appreciated.

Report cards will be issued for the first quarter (they are not required until January), this will give you a good idea as to whether your child needs help to improve in any area.  Information in how to access your child’s report card will be coming.   If you have trouble accessing after the first quarter closes please contact Mrs. Anderson.  There will be marks for everything except Art, Music, and Physical Education.  They will be added in January.

We fill our bead jar.  We earn beads to put in the jar by following the rules and being helpful to one another. (In a quiet line, putting away our materials, being polite, etc.) 

Please note that uniforms will be essential.  The uniform for K is clearly spelled out on this web site.  You must read and sign the form on the Parent’s Handbook so please make sure you read the uniform chart carefully.  Your child will be sent a note or email if there is something out of place so you may correct it.  If we have to send three notices about uniforms your child will lose the privilege of the following Dress Down Day.  This includes wearing tattoos and nail polish. 

Just a reminder that there are no electronic devises at school unless provided by the teacher.  No cell phones, Ipads, tablets, etc. are to be used during the school day that includes during Before or After School care.

If you would like to read to the class, go on a field trip, help out in the school in any way, you must complete a CORI, complete Safe Environment Training, and have finger prints taken through Morpho.  You can get information from the office.  If the fee for fingerprinting is a problem see Mrs. Willand.

   The lunch boxes will be put aside as soon as we come in in the morning so your child’s snack, which will go in the cubbies must be packed separately from lunch.  Your child will not be able to access his/her lunch box to retrieve a snack.
