Reminders:  

*Please be aware of the changing weather and that your child is dressed appropriately.  We have outdoor recess if it is 32 degrees and above!

*Please remember library books are due on Wednesdays.  You may have your child turn in their library book earlier if you would like.

*Please label all your child’s belongings.

*I know rest time can be challenging for the students who do not take naps any more. Students may have one stuffed animal that does not make noise and/or a book for rest time. 

*Please check your child’s folder daily.
