Bits and Pieces

Bits and Pieces

Eager Reader

Please be sure to go in and mark that your child's minutes have been approved by you.   If you are having trouble logging in, the password is Comets (with a capital C) and the login page is on the PTA website. 



Now that we are halfway through the school year I am finding that many students have lost their crayons and colored pencils in class.  We use these quite often and it is challenging if a student doesn't have the supplies they need.  Would you please ask your child how their supplies are and restock what is needed.

We are also in need of some baby wipes for the classroom.  We use these to keep our desks and other surface areas clean.  



It is very important that students bring their planners each day.  Please help your child to make sure it is in their backpack each morning.  This is one way for us to communicate daily and for them to let you know something we did in school that day.  Students also use them to practice their spelling words in class. 



We are going to continue having 2 snacks a day.  We are almost out of class and and would love to get donations for the classroom to help with days students don't have snack.   Some ideas of things the students like are squeezie packs of apple sauce, goldfish, ritz crackers, graham crackers, fruit snacks, or other crackers.
