A FEW THINGS TO NOTE...
*Be sure to sign in at the office and get a Beluga sticker whenever you visit the school...even if it's just for a minute or two.
*If you drop off/pick up your first grade student, he/she should be dropped off and/ picked up in the loop by the primary wing of the school. ( Unless, he/she has a kindergarten or 3rd-5th grade sibling/car pick-up buddy.)
If a student has a kindergarten or 3rd-5th grade sibling/car pick-up buddy, he/she will go to Upper Grade Pick-up, which is located at the front of the school, near the main entrance.
Please remember do not drop off your child before 8:45 a.m. and do not arrive to pick up your child before 3:30 p.m. Also, keep the line moving, watch for children in the parking lot, and do not block the street in front of the school or the crosswalk.
*We take a 10 minute snack break in the morning. Please send a healthy snack for your child each day.*Parents are ALWAYS welcome in my class and I LOVE volunteers. If you would like to be added to the schedule each month, just let me know. Slip a note in your child's daily folder or send me an email with your preferred dates and times. I will keep a monthly volunteer schedule on our "Volunteer Calendar" tab.
*I will send home a "Frequently Asked Questions" document on the first day of school. In addition to the information you will find on this website, the "Frequently Asked Questions" document should provide answers to general questions you may have. I will also post it under the "Documents" tab, so that you can refer to it throughout the school year.
I encourage you to visit my website often. I maintain a monthly calendar of events under the "Annoucements" tab among others things I hope will be useful in helping you and your child navigate the school and first grade.
I also encourage you to visit the school's PTA website by clicking on the following link:
This site is bursting with information on ways you can support the school and get involved.
