Homework: I have students copy the daily homework into their daily planner and I sign it everyday to indicate they have acknowledged what they need to complete. Please check their planners nightly and sign above my signature to indicate to me that you have also checked their work. If the homework is not turned in or is incomplete I will send home Pink slips. If you do receive one please sign and return it back to me. Returning the pink slips is the students responsibility. 


Parent Volunteers: If you would like to become a parent volunteer for Room 29 please go to the office for the TB and Finger print paper work. I encourage parents to participate in their child's learning either in school, at home, and on field trips. IF you have already filled out all the paper work and are cleared, please email me your availability to help out with class projects, coping, and field trips. Please specify the activities you are able to participate in.


Library: The library is open.  Our Library time is on Friday's, please have students return all books. Thank you.


Birthdays: As a class policy I like to celebrate all birthdays at the end of each month. Please bring healthy snacks at the end of the day or with your child so they may hand out snack for the first recess. Please sign in at the office if you are arriving at the end of the day around 30 minutes before school is out.


PE: Our P.E. schedule will be Tuesday and Thursday from 8 to 8:45. Please make sure students wear closed-toe shoes on these days.
