Classroom Information

  • FRIDAYS are library days, so please make sure your child brings back his/her book by the end of each week.
  • Please label ALL winter-wear and review the order in which to dress for recess: snowpants, boots, coat, and then hat and mittens.
  • SK Graduation will be on Wednesday, June 19th at 2:00 pm until 3:30 pm. More info will be sent home in May.
  • Reminder about toys at school: LCA allows toys to be brought to school, but with the knowledge that the toy is the child’s full responsibility and that it could get dirty or broken or get lost/go missing. I do not allow toys to be brought into the SK classroom (exceptions are made for sharing days) and toys are to stay in backpacks and only come out at recess time. Students are also not allowed to give away toys at school, as this could possibly cause hurt feelings for other students. Parents, if you choose to allow your child to bring a toy to school, please review these expectations with your child. Thanks.
