We enter and leave the building through the Red doors; before and after school, also at recess and lunch times. If your child is having breakfast before school, they will enter through the Blue doors. We will be using the first bell this year: Lined up and ready for the day at 8:55 Dismiss at 3:55
Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather.
I use a pencil challenge where each student will have five sharpened pencils every Monday. The pencil boxes will be turned in on Fridays so I can check them. If students have all five pencils on Fridays, they will receive a small prize/treat. If students use mechanical pencils or pencils brought in from home, they will not participate in this challenge.
We will have snack time in the afternoon. Please send in a nutritious snack for your child. The school does provide some snacks for those who forget or can't afford to buy snacks.
I believe that learning can be fun and I try to incorporate fun activities throughout the week. There are times when we need to be focused on our learning and work quietly.
The only homework would be our Math HomeLink and this will only be sent home upon the completion of a lesson. Homework will not neccessarily be sent home every night and never on Fridays or half days. Some students prefer to complete this during class time.
You may contact me at any time during the day from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. I will return your call/respond to your message as soon as I am able. I may not be able to answer phone calls/respond to emails during our learning time.
I am looking forward to meeting everyone and having a great school year.
