Helper of the Day
Every student will have the opportunity to be the "helper of the day" many times throughout the year.  Helpers will be chosen in locker number order.

Monthly Reading Calendars
Every month your child will bring home a monthly reading calendar.  Your child should read or be read to for at least 10 minutes a day.  Also, encourage your child to find star words in the text.  Return your completed reading calendar on the first school day of the following month.
 
Book-in-a-Bag
Your child will bring home a book in a bag.  Books may be returned daily (with a minimum of three times a week).  The books sent home will be within your child's reading range.  Some books will be easier and some more difficult.  Encourage your child to read the book to you.  Feel free to read the book to your child if he/she is having difficulty reading it independently.

Students will participate in 30 minutes of phy. ed. class each day.  Children should wear or bring tennis shoes daily for phy. ed.  

Music, Art, Computer Lab & Book Check-Out
Students will participate in 30 minutes of music, art, computer lab or book check-out each day. These classes will be on a rotating basis.

Library Books
Children visit the Media Center once a week to check out library books.  Please have your child return his/her books by the next scheduled book check-out day.  For specific days refer to your agenda sheet inside your child's folder.

Recess/Lunch
You are welcome to join your child at 10:35 for lunch in the cafeteria.  Students have 20 minutes for lunch and return to class at 10:55.  Recess is before lunch, from 10:15-10:30.   Children will have indoor recess when it is raining or the temperature/wind chill is -10.
 
Absences 
If your child is absent from school, call the attendance line as soon as possible (425-5606).  If you are going on vacation, please notify me in advance by writing a note inside your child's folder.
 
After School Pick-Up 
If you are picking up your child after school, please meet him/her in the commons area.
 
Bus Transportation 
Your child's bus tag should be placed inside a Ziploc bag and pinned to his/her backpack.  Please note inside your child's folder if he/she is going to be picked up or is riding a different bus home after school.  Without a note, I will send your child home in the usual manner.
 
Late Drop-Off/Early Pick-Up 
If your child is late for school or if you need to pick up your child for an appointment, you must check-in at the office.
 
Birthdays
As of September 2010, Red Rock no longer allows birthday treats to be brought into the classroom.  We will celebrate your child's birthday on the school day closest to his/her actual birthday.  If your child has a summer birthday we will celebrate his/her half birthday. Some parents choose to send in birthday treat bags for each student in the classroom. You are welcome to do this but please do not feel obligated. We are have 24 students in the class (including your child).
