When sending in envelopes or money, please be sure they are clearly marked with your child’s name.

Birthday Celebrations-Please note that we cannot celebrate birthdays with food. If your child chooses to celebrate his/her birthday in school, he/she may bring in a non-edible treat for every student in the class. In previous years, students have brought in pencils, erasers, bookmarks, or stickers. One of our favorite birthday treats is a book! I will read the book aloud to the class that day. The book will then stay in our classroom for students to look at/read on their own. 
Mystery Readers-  Please return the sheet with your availability if you are interested in being a mystery reader.  I will send you a notice with your schedule time and date.  Please fill in the clues that I will read to the class so they can guess who our reader is!
