Classroom Policies


Birthdays will be recognized by the class during Morning Meeting.
Party invitations may not be distributed in the classroom and gifts or treats for classmates will not be allowed.

Nut Free Classroom
Our classroom is nut free. Please only send snacks that do not contain any nuts or nut products. The children can consume nuts at lunch in the cafe.

In first grade we expect the children to read or be read to each night for 20 minutes. We might send home things to work on at home that are related to curriculum content, but this will be on an as needed basis.
