It is important for children to arrive at school ready to learn. They need to be well rested and prepared for the day. Waiting until the morning to pack up may cause you and them stress. I suggest having your child pack up the night before.
Your child may bring a water bottle but it needs to be able to be opened by them. I prefer no caps!
Please make sure that you have checked your child's folder each night. This is a way to communicate with you what homework they have and it allows you and I to have a space to communicate.
In our classroom and within the building we practice safe, respectful, and responsible behavior. We celebrate these things in multiple ways.
