Classroom Information

Mrs. Krupsaw

First Grade


Website:  Please continue to check the school and class websites for information. This will be our main form of communication regarding school and classroom events and assignments.  

Dolphin Envelope:  Sent home on Wednesday. Please review information and send the Dolphin Envelope back empty on Thursday morning. Papers will include completed classwork. Parents are encouraged to return papers that need to be signed and/or filled out as soon as possible 

Take Home/Backpack Folder:  Students will keep this folder in their backpack at all times. Parents are encouraged to return papers that need to be signed and/or filled out as soon as possible. 

Weekly Newsletter: At the end of each week, I will send a weekly newsletter home. It is short and sweet, so please take the time to review it and see what we learned the past week and important dates and reminders.

Library:  Students will be checking books out each Monday. It is important that all books are returned on Monday morning or Friday afternoon the prior week. Books need to be checked in prior to check out. If books are not returned on time, no new books will be checked out. Any lost or damaged books will need to pay for with the LCM library.

Classroom Library:  Students may check out one book at a time from our classroom library to read at home. Please encourage your child to be responsible and take care of these books. There is a charge for any lost or damaged books.

Office - Check In and Out:  All tardy students and Parent Volunteers need to check in at the office. When picking up a child early, please check out in the office and they will call the classroom to send up your child. We ask that parents try to make appointments after school, so that students are not pulled out during the school day.

Phone and Email Messages: I will only check emails and phone messages at the end of the school day. If you need to get a message to or about your child before the end of school, please dial 0 for the office. Feel free to send a written note with your child and it is their responsibility to give it to me. I do not check students' backpacks or folders. 

Remind: Please sign-up with the Remind app. (information can be found on the class webpage) for text reminders.

Friday Flag Assembly:  All parents are welcomed to attend Friday mornings at 8:45 AM on the blacktop. We will not have Flag Assembly every Friday. Please check the calendar for specific dates.

College Wednesdays: We are College Bound at LCM. Our classroom is Chico State as well as Stanford University. Every Wednesday, we are encouraging staff and students to wear shirts with college logos. Any college gear or colors work great. 

Dress Code:  Please review LCM Policies for guidelines. Remember to send your child in comfortable, appropriate clothing. Shoes need to be closed toed with a strap around the heel. We do have P.E. 2 to 3 times a week when running shoes will need to be worn. Students are encouraged to wear sneakers every day, since the students run around at recess, lunch, and often other times throughout the day.

Birthdays:  Our class has a "Birthday in Bag" tradition. Please see the flyer attached to bag when your student's birthday is near. (Optional) PTO will be selling birthday Popsicle coupons for families that would like to have their child's birthday celebrated at school.  A student may pass out a coupon to pick up a Popsicle rather than pass out popsicles in class. Please contact PTO directly for more information. In addition, parents can purchase a birthday book through the LCM Library and your child will be called up at a Flag Assembly.  Parents may also send in a classroom book. There are book suggestions listed on Mrs. Krupsaw's  Amazon Wish List. Please do not send in any food items. Birthday invitations may only be sent home through the classroom if every student is invited. It is important that students do not feel left out. Otherwise, please use the class directory to mail invitations home.

Sign-Up Genius: Several times a year, I will send a sign-up genius link for needed classroom supplies and donations. Thank you in advance for your help.

Class Directory:  With your permission, a list will be distributed to our class with names, addresses, phone numbers, and emails. This will allow you to contact classmates and send birthday invitations to students’ homes. If you do not want to be included, please fill out the bottom portion of the form. Forms will be distributed and collected at the beginning of the year.
