Snack and Lunch
Click on the lunchbox for the lunch menu:
Please remember to pack your child a healthy snack and drink for our morning break at 10:00. Lunch is scheduled for 12:20 and your child may purchase hot lunch or milk at this time. Your child may pay for lunch on a daily basis, or a check and on-line payments are available to pay in advance. Lunch is $2.00 and milk is $.50. Milk can not be purchased at snack time.
For Homework send it home in a packet. In Friday's Folder you will receive the packet for the next week, not to be passed in until the following Friday. This will give your child time to work on it as his or her pace. The packet will include a grammar/phonic sheet, a math practice page, the fluency poem or songs, a book to read and a spelling practice page that reviews their words for the spelling test on Friday. On Monday their Spelling Book will go home with their words for the week so that they can practice for Friday's Test. There will be no homework on Friday. A Friday Folder will be sent home.
I am also asking that you have your child read for 15 minutes a night and that they practice their addition and subtraction facts too. The more they practice the better they will become at these skills.
Your child's homework folder is to be returned on a daily basis. Your child's Friday Folder should be returned on Monday. Please place your child's spelling book in their Homework Folder on Thursday night so it can be returned every Friday. Thank you for your support
and involvement in your child's life!
