Throughout the year there will be a variety of special activities and celebrations. I encourage you to attend these functions when possible. Your support of school activities makes your child feel important and sends the message that you value school.
Your child's regular and prompt attendance at school is crucial to his/her success. Most kindergarten learning activities are group oriented and involve interaction with class mates. Please view school as a priority and see that your child attends school everyday, except in cases of illness or emergency.
Changes in Transportation
If you plan to pick your child up at a different time please write a note. The same if you carpool and your child has to go home with someone different. Also, if you need to have your child in afterschool care please let me know. DO NOT rely on your child to tell me this information, because children often become confused and relay messages incorrectly. If no written note in received, your child will be sent home by his/her usual method of transportation.
Students will go out for recess everyday, unless it is rainy or extremely cold. Please make sure your child has the appropriate clothing according to the weather.
Birthdays are special for everyone, especially for kindergarten students. School birthday recognition is NOT meant to replace birthday parties. If you are having a birthday party and you choose to send in invitations please make sure that the entire class is invited. If you are only inviting a select few please send invitation to home addresses. A simple cupcake or cookie may be sent from home to share with the class during snack time (about 9:30am) or before recess (about 1:00pm).
