Letter of the Week: Alphabet Review Sight Word: like/you
Morning Prayer: The Morning Offering
This past week we worked on classroom routines, letter recognition, number recognition, writing our names, getting to know our school.
Folders will be sent home whenever we have notices, papers, etc. that need your attention. When folders are sent home please return them the next school day (even if they are empty). Simply place the folder in the green box on the counter next to the sink. Encourage your child to take charge of this task for you in addition to hanging up their backpack.
Homework goes out on Fridays and is due the following Thursday. Please complete the packet in pencil unless otherwise noted, remind the children to color in the pages neatly, and when practicing their name to write neatly on the lines. It may help if you write their name in yellow highlighter then let them write over the yellow in pencil.
Please look over your child’s homework packet before they turn it in. Help your child correct any errors and encourage your child to work neatly. This is the time to establish good homework/study habits.
Please pack a snack for your child everyday. It helps if you label the snack and send a spoon if their snack needs one.
If you plan on helping in the classroom, driving for field trips or chaperoning you must have completed the Safe Environment Training, cleared fingerprints, and submitted driving forms to the office. We will go on a field trip in October. If you want to drive/chaperone you must attend the safe environment training and get fingerprinted. Please allow two weeks for fingerprint clearance. All necessary training and clearances must be completed and in the office at least one week prior to our field trips.
