A reminder to please show your child where money is packed for buying lunch, or explain to your child when the student ID badge provided at school will be used to charge student account and buy lunch.

*Classroom snacks must be nut-free (see end of page for a list of suggestions); however lunches eaten in the cafeteria do not need to be nut-free. There are designated nut-free sections in the cafeteria.

Kindergarten Homework Guidelines:

Our goal is to ensure homework is meaningful, family friendly, age-appropriate and inspires a love of learning in all students. Reading will be the focus for all students across Placentino.

Students can be read to, read independently or share their reading with another family member (or pet, or stuffed animal). Families are encouraged to read nightly. Remember, there are 3 ways to read a book. You can read the pictures, read the words or retell the story. We hope that the love of a story will spark conversations and promote storytelling.

Daily reading experiences can include asking questions about the pictures in the story. Oral reading aloud to your child in English is an excellent way of helping him/her to develop the prerequisite language skills necessary to becoming a good French language learner!
