Keep logging on to whooosreading.org to help us reach our fundraising and reading goal! I am impressed with how much reading is taking place! Our total class minutes read is higher than all of the first grade classes and even higher than two of the second grade classes! I'm impressed with all of the reading that is taking place. Please, if you haven't been logging any reading time it isn't too late to help out! We are currently in second place out of the kindergarten sections. Let's try to raise some more funds and see if we can catch up to Mrs. Bagby's class!

All box tops are due to me by October 26th. Our Liaisons will be working hard to sort, clip, count, and check all of our box tops. Please help her by getting rid of the expired ones before turning them in.

Absences and Missed Work

If you know that your child is going to miss instruction time in the classroom, we appreciate it when you let us know via email. However, it is not always possible for us to compile work that your child will miss. Sometimes this is due to the type of lesson, but sometimes it is due to the time constraints of the day.
If your child’s teacher does compile work for your child, it is purely courtesy, as this is not required by our school policies. If your child’s teacher is unable to compile the work, your child may catch up on the work upon his return to school, with the appropriate deductions made in the case of an unexcused absence. In the case of an excused absence, as many days of grace will be given as there were days of absence.
Please note:
·         Receipt of advance work does not necessarily constitute an excused absence.
·         Excused absences are given for sickness or bereavement and can be granted only by our administrative staff, not teachers.
·         Parents who are volunteering on campus may not come to their child’s classroom to request work in advance of an absence.

For more information about absences and requests for missed work, please refer to our Family Handbook.
