Most days your child will bring home his/her Daily Folder. It will contain any information or daily work that was completed. Also, a Daily Behavior Sheet will give updates on your child's progress in basic Kindergarten behaviors. Notes from the teacher do not indicate the need for a conference. They imply areas needing focus that week. Please empty the folder of all papers, sign and return the folder the following day.
Our conference time is 2:15- 3:00pm. Formal conferences are scheduled in Sept. & Mar. We will notify you of your date and time. We appreciate all conferences scheduled in advance.
Snacks and Water Bottles
Students are encouraged to bring a snack and water bottle to class. Snacks must be dry, healthy, disposable finger foods. Water Bottles must contain non-flavored water only. No juice, sports drinks or sodas. Sport tops are preferred.
Dismissal will follow the guidelines set forth on the Dismissal Procedures. Please be sure that you register any names of those people allowed to pick up your child from school with the front office. No child will be released to anyone without prior notification from the front office. We will adhere to normal method of transportation unless notified in writing or voicemail as to any changes. We will not accept word of mouth instructions from your child.
** No changes in dismissal transportation will be allowed after 12:00 unless it is an emergency.
Please choose clothing that is suitable for active play and weather conditions. Make sure they do not hinder your child's ability to care for bathroom needs. Make sure all removable items are marked with your child's name. Please choose shoes your child can keep tied/buckled independently. Girls, please wear shorts under your skirts.
If your child is going to be absent, please contact the school at 281.641.3019. When your child returns to school, you must send a note that includes the dates of absence and your signature.
A donation of $30.00 for expenses during the school year is requested and appreciated. The money covers fees for field trips, special projects, lesson materials, cooking, etc.
Students will report their progress on their Daily Behavior Report in their Daily Folder. Please refer to the Behavior Management Guidelines for more information.
"The Shelf" is located in the front entry hall. Once school has begun, please place any items for your child on the cart. Students will have the opportunity to get the items. This saves disruptions in the classroom.
Any notes sent home or sent to school need to be in your child's Daily Folder. It saves any guesswork on where to look for communication between teacher and family.
Reminder - Send notes for all absences even if you notify the school by telephone. Send notes for changes in transportation plans and for the days when your student will be checking out before dismissal time.
Please do not allow your child to bring toys or sports equipment to school. There will be opportunities for students to share special items with the class. Your teacher will advise you when and how that will be accommodated. If you have something that relates to the content being studied, please discuss the possibility of sharing that item with your child's teacher.
