We feel that communication between home and school is a vital part of your childs education success. Parents and teachers are working as a team. Your child will be bringing home a binder every day in which we will send home student work, notes, homework calendar, and your childs daily conduct chart.
This folder is also an open line of communication for you in which you can send us notes, lunch money, questions, etc. Our weekly communication will be via the newsletter on the Kindergarten Team Website and Remind 101. Kindergarten Conduct/Discipline
Our philosophy of discipline is based on the belief that children need affection and firm guidelines. As a district we have adopted the strategies found in the Love and logic program, which teaches the child to be responsible for their own behavior and make responsible choices. To establish structure and help children learn self-control, the children will be guided to respect themselves and their peers through specific directions, positive reinforcement, suggested new activities, and
responsible actions. Please look at your childs folder each evening to see how your child did that day and the specific expectations they are required to follow. Please remember to initial your childs folder daily. Positive Reinforcement Cheetah Bucks Classroom Rewards Grade Level Point System
Arrival Children will be permitted to arrive on campus and enter the school building at 8:00 a.m. Children will go directly to their classroom. If your child is eating breakfast please remember they should be in the cafeteria by 8:20. Please do not drop your child off for school prior 8:00 a.m. as there is no adult supervision prior to that time. Children are expected to be in their classrooms by 8:20 a.m. Water Bottles
Students may bring a water bottle to school each day filled only with water. The water bottle should have a sports lid that can be closed. The sports cap reduces the incidents of spills and is easier for your child to use. Please do not send water bottles that have a twistoff top. Please label the water bottle with your childs name. Snacks
Please send your child with a nutritious snack every day. Examples of nutritious snacks are fruit, cheese,
pretzels, grapes, crackers, cereal, etc. Snacks of candy, fruit roll ups, or dessert foods are not encouraged. Please label their snack with their name. Please do not place the snack in the lunchbox. It is confusing to the children. Make sure your child knows the difference in his lunch and snack. You may label the snack. Only water is allowed in the classroom. Website Tutorial
