  5. Read to your child EVERYDAY! (At least 15 minutes!) • You MUST inform the office of any changes in dismissal, you must call the office otherwise for safety your child will be sent home the usual way! Your children need that concrete reminder. This greatly eases your child’s mind and reduces stress at dismissal. • Send a large t-shirt or smock for art (Wednesday). • Have your child wear sneakers on Mondays and Thursdays (Physical Education). • Dress your child for the weather. Make sure they have what they need. Label your child’s belongings. • Set up your child’s lunch account as soon as possible. • Birthdays: A special snack is always welcome! Please drop it off first thing in the morning so I can best decide when to serve it. • Book orders: Make check payable to Scholastic Book Clubs. DO NOT SEND CASH! • Snack: Send one each day please. Our lunch is at 12:45 pm and your child will need it! • Donations: All are WELCOME! In the past parents have contributed coffee cans, shaving cream, egg cartons, paper plates, paper lunch bags, old newspapers or magazines. • Parent homework: Please go over all work sent home in your child’s folder. Discuss the work. Take time to notice the things.
