Hello soon to be 2nd graders! I hope you all are having an awesome summer! I am excited to meet you in August! Here is some information that might be helpful until then.

Back to School Night will be held on Monday, August 19th

The First Day of School is Wednesday, August 21st. The first three days (August 21-23) are early out days with dismissal at 1:10 pm.

Here are a few things you can do now to prepare:

  1. Blog : Please subscribe to our class blog by clicking on the icon to the right and inputting your email address. (If you’re on a phone, it will be at the very bottom.)
  2.  Class Disclosure : Parents and students, please read through this together and sign the form Class Disclosure e-Signature 
  3.  Yearly Food Permission Slip : Please fill this out so your child can participate in fun, food learning activities throughout the year.
  4. Class supplies: Please consider paying a donation of $30 here: Online Payments,  mark “Donations-Class Supplies”, then select my name from the drop down menu. You can also pay in the Q1 Office. Please do so on or before Back to School Night and I will take care of all the shopping, labeling, and organizing of class supplies.

Additionally, students will need to bring the following items on the first day of school:

  • Headphones or earbuds–labeled with the student’s name. Parents will be responsible to replace broken or damaged headphones/earbuds throughout the year. We use headphones multiple times throughout the day in the classroom. Please try to find the highest-quality headphones possible. 
  • A backpack (standard-sized). Please do not purchase the smaller-sized backpacks, as your student will be frustrated at not being able to fit books and papers neatly inside.
  • Water bottle–Student may bring a small, closable water bottle with their name on it. Water Only! Water bottles help so much, because the student doesn’t have to leave the classroom just to get a drink.
