•  Class Expectations

    We, as current first grade So-Kool kids, agree to the following expectations: 

           1.  Unpack and pack up quietly.

           2.  Stay seated during lessons.

           3.  Talk only when appropriate and check our volume.

           4.  Use respect and manners while supporting our classroom family.

           5.  Always do our best and make good choices.




    ATTENDANCE: If your child is late or absent, a note is required for our files. In addition, please notify the school by phone that morning. All notes should include date of absence, reason and your signature.

    DISMISSAL: If there is any change in your child's bus/pick-up schedule, please send in a note that day. We can not release your child without notification.

    SNACKS: Snack is usually around 10:15 or 1:30 depending on our Daily Special.  Snack is not a replacement for a meal.  They should have no more than 2 snacks, preferably one with protein.  Candy is discouraged. Please no glass bottles.  Snack drinks may be ordered through the district.  

    WATER BOTTLES: Children may keep a water bottle in class if it is the pull up kind ONLY. We've had too many spills and wet papers from loose screw caps.  Please include a clean sock to act as a bottle cozy, it helps with the condensation.

    BIRTHDAYS:  Birthday students may bring a special treat only for themselves.  The BOE has adopted the policy of no food for birthdays, with the exception of the celebrating student.  Birthday students may only bring a special treat for her/himself.  In addition they may invite a parent or special person to come in and read to the class.

     BELONGINGS:  Please label all books, notebooks, folders, coats, lunch boxes, etc. with your child's name.

    FIELD TRIPS:  Information will be forthcoming.  Children are expected to wear their school t-shirts and comfortable shoes.

    CLASS DOJO:  I communicate with all parents through the FREE CLASS DOJO app.  This is explained at Meet the Teacher and the parent sign up info sheet is given out at that time.  It allows me to "speak" and share photos with everyone or individuals.
