  • Things to Know:

    • Please Remember that attendance is important for every student, because every minute is a learning minute. Every Monday, a newsletter will come home in regards to what is happening in the classroom, in addition daily/weekly posts on ClassDojo

    • Throughout the year students are held to a higher standard on monitoring their own behaviors. Parents, you can always check and monitor your students behavior progress via ClassDojo. Students earn/lose points daily based on their personal behavioral choices. 

    • Our school serves (free) breakfast in the classroom where all students are provided with the option to eat breakfast. At the beginning of each month I send home the breakfast menu so that parents can see what students are being provided with during the month. If your child lost the menu and you are curious, you can access it via the food services image. (plus more health conscious parents can make a more informed decision on breakfast in the mornings)
