  • Be sure to check your student's folder every day.  Important papers are sent this way.  At the beginning of every month a newsletter is sent home with your child as well as uploaded to the connect site.  Make sure you check it for important classroom news and school work updates.

  • Be sure to label lunchboxes, jackets, hats, and gloves before they come to school.  It is easier to find them if they have a name to identify with:)
