Special notes and reminders:
· Welcome back! Please remind your child that we have many things left to learn.
· Please check with your child to see if they need any supplies for school. Some of the children need a new black and white composition notebook for morning work and spelling… we are just about to run out of pages !! J
· We have reexamined our safety plan and are closely following the rules and procedures. Please make sure you have checked in at the office and have a visitor’s pass. Also, just a reminder that you are always welcome for lunch. If you could help us out when you do come and eat to not walk down the hallways with your child when lunch is over. Thank you for your help in keeping our school safe.
