Our cafeteria uses a computerized cash register. You may deposit money into their account weeks or months in advance! Remember that it will take 24-72 hours for the money to show up in your child’s account.
We will have snack each day in the classroom. Children are responsible for bringing their own snack each day. Please send healthy snacks that are easy to clean up.
Children are invited (and encouraged!) to bring in water to drink throughout the day. Water bottles should have a pop-top or sippy straw to prevent spills. Water will be the only drink allowed in the classroom throughout the day.
Students will work towards an individual goal, as well as earn the privilege of moving their name up the first grade AR board. The children will be able to go to the library regularly to pick out new AR books to bring home to read. Please remember that the Accelerated Reader program is a small piece in the larger puzzle of reading. It is a wonderful practice tool, but is not the sole source in teaching your child to read.
Once homework begins, your child will have assignments Monday-Thursday. All assignments will be due on Friday but can be turned in any time throughout the week. There will be a spelling test on Friday. Along with assigned homework, I expect that your child will read every night. Homework and spelling words can be found in the weekly newsletter.
Any changes in dismissal need to be in writing and at school by 1:00. If you have any last minute changes, please notify the school via a phone call to the office. Please do NOT rely on APS e-mail for any transportation changes. If dismissing your child from school, please be sure to pick him/her up by 1:30 pm.
We now have a school-wide “No Food” policy for Birthday Celebrations. Instead, your child will get “15 Minutes of Fame” for their birthday. Please see the attached letter for more details. Birthday Celebrations- 15 Minutes of Fame
