For birthdays, only store-bought cupcakes and cookies will be allowed. However, we would prefer mini-cupcakes or cookies for treats. Please be sure the treat is all one flavor.

  17. School Procedures

  18. Attendance & Tardy Policy • We will pick the children up from the first grade common area at 7:25 a.m. The tardy bell rings at 7:30. If your child is not in the classroom at that time, he/she is tardy and will need to go to the office to get a tardy slip and will be marked tardy. • If your child is absent, please send in a note • {doctor’s note as well} to your child’s teacher immediately when your child returns to school. Your child will record the daily attendance in their Leadership Notebooks. • Our school has the opportunity to receive a state distinction this year if we all focus on attendance together.

  19. Transportation If there is a change in the way your child will get home from school, please send a note to your child’s teacher. If the teacher does not receive a note, the child will go home the way you have indicated on the student information card and the transportation form from the district. The best way to make last minute changes is to contact the office and they can inform your child’s teacher, before 2:00. If the change is permanent, please inform the office and teacher in writing. REMINDER: Dismissal is at 2:45 pm this year.

  20. Car Pick-up If you are picking up your child in your car, please be sure you have a YELLOW card clearly labeled {in THICK black marker} with your child’s first and last name and the teacher’s name. To help dismissal go more smoothly, please be sure your sign is visible everyday.

  21. Parent Volunteers There are many ways to contribute to your child’s school. Our PTA coordinates the volunteer program. If you are interested in helping out on our campus, you must fill out a background check form and return it to the office. Parents must be DPS cleared in order to chaperone field trips! Class Parties We will have two class parties throughout the year. One is a “Winter Party” and one is a “End of the Year Party.” Teachers, in conjunction with parents, will be coordinating the parties. Be on the look out for more information as the time approaches!

  22. Grading Procedures First grade will have numeric grades again this year. Some grades will be based upon a 95 grading scale. This is due to the fact that a lot of work at the beginning of first grade is done as a guided practice. Progress Reports Progress reports will be sent home the 3rd week during the 9 week grading period for students who are performing below grade level. Progress reports will be sent home for all students during the 6th week of the 9 weeks. *Consent to Share*
