Snack Confusion

We're having a major lunch/snack confusion.  Please put your child's snack in a DIFFERENT place than their lunch box.  We're asking the students in the morning if they have a lunch box for cold lunch and they're saying yes, but it's their snack, not their lunch.  If you could, review in the morning with your child exactly what they're doing for lunch, cold lunch is a lunch from home, hot lunch is a lunch from school.  If they have a cold lunch and a snack, please put the snack in the front pocket of the bookbag or someplace seperate so we know what's what.  Thank you!  We really appreciate it! 

PS:  Happy Birthday Chole R.!

Week of August 26th-30th

Happy Monday!  Kindergarten is starting off without a hitch.  Here are a few reminders as we start a new week:

1.  Your child needs a daily snack. 
2.  Don't forget to return the towel we sent home on Friday to be washed.
3.  This Friday starts our West Virginia spirit Fridays!  Try to dress your child in gold, blue or both.  No biggie if you don't, it's just a super fun day to celebrate our state.
4.  The weekly homework sheet went home today.  Please make sure to look at it every night.  If you see a book that needs to be read listed and you don't see it in the folder yet, it should be coming home the day it's listed for homework.  If you see something listed on the homework sheet and it's not in the folder that day, it's more than likely my fault, it's probably something we just didn't get to finish.  Just look for it the next day, hopefully it'll be in your child's folder at some point.
5.  We would love any donations of Clorox wipes, tissues and boxes of individual snacks.
