What time does school start and end?
Students can begin reporting to class at 7:10. The tardy bell rings at 7:30. If for some reason they are late, a parent needs to sign them in at the office. School will dismiss at 2:25. If your child needs to go home in a way different from their regular routine, I must have a note or a message from the office.
 
How will they do snack this year? 
We break for a snack around 9am. Each child will be responsible for bringing their own snack. Let's try to promote a healthy snack. We all have forgetful days, so I keep some crackers on hand for these times. Please send water to drink. Thanks!
 
How do I handle lunch money?
There are 2 ways to pay for items in the cafeteria. You can send it in their home folder. The money needs to be in an envelope with their name, lunch number and teacher's name. Also, be sure that your check has your phone number on it. There is also an online method for a small fee. Click here for the pre-pay.
 
Can I volunteer in the class?
Yes!!! I can use help in lots of different way. I like to match up tasks with parents interests and strengths, so let me know your interested and I'll put you to work :)
  
What are Early Release Days and when are they?
Students dismiss at 11:00 on these days. Teacher have professional development in the afternoon. For the 2018-19 year, the following days have been designated as Early Release:  Sept. 26, Feb. 27 and May 8.

What will my child be learning this year?
We are still using Common Core Standards in Math and Language Arts. We also use state standards for Science and Social Studies. We will be sharing more information as the year unfolds.  Here are some links that will help you get started. Info on the Common Core 
 
When can my child go to the library? 
We have a scheduled time to visit the library on a rotation basis, but your child can visit the library to get new books as often as needed. I have some time each day that they can go to exchange books.
 
Can I eat with my child?
We'd love to have you join us for lunch. Please meet us in the cafeteria at (time to be announced). If it is nice weather, you are welcome to eat at the picnic tables. We do ask that you limit your visits to once a week. It is important for your child to socialize with their peers, since our day is so structured. We look forward to seeing you soon.
 
What do I do when my child is sick?
If your is absent, please complete the on-line absence form about why your child missed school. You are welcome to email me and I can send home missed work with a friend or leave it in the office for you to pick up. Click here for the ISS attendance policy.
 
How do you celebrate birthdays?
Birthdays are special occasions for children. If your child wishes, he/she can bring in treats for the class to share. All treats need to be store bought (district policy). For those that have summer birthdays, we have a special celebration to honor them at the end of the year.
