Snack Each day we will be taking a nutritious snack break. Each child will be responsible for bringing his/her own healthy snack and drink. Fruits, vegetables, crackers or pretzels make a great snack. Please, ABSOUTELY NO CHOCOLATE!!! Juice boxes and water bottles are fine, please no pop.


Allergies Please let me know as soon as possible if your child has any allergies or other medical condition that I should be aware of.


Rules On the first day of school, the children along with myself will come up with our classroom rules. Every child will be expected to follow these rules. I use a colored card system for discipline. We also use incentive charts everyday along with Eagle Bucks.


Birthdays Feel free to send in a birthday snack on or near your child’s birthday. If your child has a summer birthday, check with me and we can set up a day in May or June to celebrate. Please send in napkins with your treat!
