Halloween Hunt!                    

 Please join us!  We will be having a Halloween treasure hunt and party on Friday, 10/30 @ 2pm. The children will search for clues inside the building for the treasure hunt.  When they have all their clues, they return to the classroom for a goodie bag filled with prizes.  It would be great if you could send in small items/ prizes for the goodie bags.  I would suggest pencils, erasers, small candy or small toys.  Please send in 20 of the same prize by Wednesday, 10/28.  Thanks!

You will be contacted by phone or note for party supplies or treats.  Please let me know if you plan on sending in food items for the party.  We don’t want too much or for food to go to waste.

       As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please send me a note.

We have 2 simple rules in our classroom.  Please discuss them with your child.

1.  Keep your hands and feet to yourself.

2. Be a GREAT listener.

 Birthdays are celebrated during lunch time. Easy to eat snacks (cupcakes, brownies, cookies) are best. Please watch for more info. on healthy birthday snacks.

 Volunteers are always welcome in my classroom. Please give me a few weeks to get settled and I’ll contact you.

We will have snack each day. The snack should be healthy and easy to eat. NO CANDY or CHOCOLATE PLEASE! The children are not allowed to share their snacks due to food allergies. A bag/box drink or water bottle is fine. NO SODA.


Homework- Each day your child will write their homework assignment in their agenda book. They will usually have reading and math.   Please help them complete the work and put it back in their go home folder.  

FYI- If all homework is completed for the week= JB dollar    

Don’t forget to work on and return your leveled reader to school each day
