Important Information & Policies
Homework and Folders
Homework will be sent home each Monday in students homework folders and will be due at the end of the week. Included in the homework is a checklist to complete weekly reading, sight words or spelling words practice, and math facts practice. In addition, I will include one to two pages of additional literacy or math practice worksheets. If you have questions about homework expectations or need modifications, please let me know!
It is expected that students return their homework folder to school each day as this will be one way to transport important documents, forms, and money. If you need to send money to school with your child, please put it in the money envelope attached to your child's homework folder so I can easily find it.
In addition to homework folders, students will be expected to bring their math facts folders back and forth from school to home each day.
Friday Folders: Every week important papers, forms, and student work will be sent home in the Friday Folder. Please be sure to check this folder each week and return to school with your child before the following Friday.
Buses and Transportation
Some children get confused about which bus to ride. If your child is to ride a different bus than usual, or is to be picked up, please send a note and call the school. Without a note or call, each child will ride the regular bus.
Students need to bring their own snacks to school each day. They will have an opportunity for morning and afternoon snack. In general, I will not be providing snack unless I see a need for it or families have contacted me about alternative options.
We love to celebrate student birthdays in first grade! If you would like to bring in treats to share with the class for your child's birthday, please contact me in advance to verify number of students and food restrictions/allergies. Generally we celebrate birthdays in the afternoon around 3:00 p.m.
Scholastic Book Club Orders
Each month I will send out digital and/or paper flyers with great options for purchasing engaging books for young readers. Orders can be placed online and they benefit our classroom with free books for every order.
