First Day of School

Dear Mom and Dad,

The first day of school can be very overwhelming for our little ones! Please read the following in preparation for the first day.

A Successful Morning:
Please bring your student to our classroom no earlier than 8:30 AM. Outside my door will be a checklist stating how your student gets home (walking, car, bus, or KOC). Please check the appropriate box. Have your student practice hanging up his/her backpack on the outside hooks. Walk your student into the classroom. Help them find their desk and put their name tag on. Once the bell rings, walk your student out to dot
C-13 on the blacktop and help him/her get in line. Give them a great big hug and kiss and remind them that you're very proud! Once I walk out to the line, please help your student gain independence by saying your final goodbyes on the blacktop.

Parent Contact Information:
Please fill out your contact information. Both the Room
Mom(s) and I will use this document to get in touch with you all. Parents that fill it out always feel in the loop. I will change this document to private after Wednesday, 8/21. If you don't feel comfortable filling out this document right now, I will have it available to fill out at Back to School Night; please note, however, that computers will be limited. Please click on the following link: Parent Contact Information Spreadsheet

Recess and Lunch
:
For most of our little ones, lunch is a new concept. In Kindergarten, students only have one time to eat, during their recess. The first grade schedule includes lunch held at midday (11:45AM-12:30PM) and recess held during midafternoon (1:20-1:40PM). Because of this schedule, please communicate to your child the difference between the food packed for lunch and the food packed for recess. Many first graders end up eating their entire lunch during lunchtime and have nothing left over for recess. Please tell your child that you will draw a "happy face" on the snack that is supposed to be brought out to recess. Placing a happy face on their snack will remind them of your conversation and will help your student feel successful during the first couple days of school.

Parent Pick Up:

More information to come.

Looking forward to the best day ever with your little ones! 

Respectfully,
Miss Davis
