IMPORTANT REMINDERS


Our library day is Day 2.  I do my best to note this information on the weekly newsletter.  Your child's book should be returned by that date.

Blankets and pillows are sent home at the end of the week to be washed and returned by the next school week.

Please remember to review the lunch menu with your child each day.  If your child would prefer the alternate, please write a note and place it in your child's folder.  Also, Pre-K students are only offered milk for breakfast, lunch, and snack.

If you need to contact me, you can either call the school, email me, or write a note to be placed in your child's folder.  ALL notes and information should be placed in your child's folder.


It is important to look through your child's backpack each night.
