Classroom Information

  • Snack Time

    We will have a snack time each day.  I do not keep extra snacks in the room, so please be sure to send a HEALTHY snack to school each day.  Some good ideas are, fruit (whole or slices), vegetables, half of a sandwich, and crackers.  I do not allow candy, cakes, brownies, or cookies.  Those snacks do not fill the children up or help them learn.  If your child brings those types of snacks, I will ask them to eat it at lunch or at home.  I do allow fruit snacks and cereal treat bars, however, I find that they don't benifit the children much because they remain hungry afterwards.  If your child's snack needs a spoon or fork, they will need to bring one because I do not keep them in our room.  

     

    Celebrating A Birthday

         If you would like to send a birthday treat with your child on or near his/her birthday, please feel free to do so.  Just send me a note telling me when you plan on sending your child's treat in.

    • Please do not send birthday party invitations to be distributed at school unless all children (or all boys or all girls) receive an invitation.

     

    Afternoon Schedule Change

    Anytime there is a change in your child’s afternoon schedule (i.e. after school program, early pick-up, side door parent pick up, change of bus…) I MUST know in the morning in writing so that I may inform the office appropriately.  I will not just take your child’s word for it.  If your child has no note and is telling me of an afternoon change, expect a call from the school at your home or work to discuss the change.  If your child informs me of a change at bus time (which happens a lot), I may keep them in the office until I find the safest option for them.  This may cause them to miss their bus or delay all the buses (while we rush to locate a parent at work/home).  Please do not be forgetful in this matter. 

     

         If you need to call me at any time the school’s number is 330-834-4673.  You can call the office for any unexpected afternoon bus/pick up changes and they will contact me.  Please do not email or call me with this type of change.  I may not check my messages in time.
