This report will be kept in the classroom. Your child will receive a checkmark when a rule has been broken. A note will be written in the agenda for you to sign the day the rule has been broken. This report will be used to mark the behavior side of the report card. FIVE checks in the same area will result in an “N” on the report card for that same behavior.

birthdays and lunch policies
Birthdays and Lunch Policies

Birthday celebrations can happen in the classroom. Parents may choose to send in a breakfast type treat (doughnuts, cinnamon rolls) at 7:30 or a quick treat (cookies, mini cupcakes) around 1:45. This must be pre-arranged with the teacher. Please keep in mind we do have food allergies; only store-bought products that do not contain nuts will be allowed.

Food brought in from outside sources (ie. McDonalds, etc.) cannot be brought into the cafeteria due to food allergies. Please eat it out on the picnic tables.


Since our lunch is late this year we are providing students with the opportunity to bring a small, healthy snack to enjoy mid-morning (around 10:30) to hold them over. Please make sure that snacks are healthy and mess-free! Think about using a snack-size ziploc bag and filling it with goldfish, cheez-its, grapes, pretzels, etc… Again, please keep in mind we have food allergies so do not pack anything that contains peanuts. Please read the labels – you would be very surprised what snacks do indeed contain peanuts!
