Backpacks: Make sure the backpack you choose for your child is big enough to hold all of their winter gear, lunch box, snack and home folder.
Lunch boxes: If your child is eating school lunch and bringing a lunch make sure they know it is lunch and not just snack. We try to catch kids before they eat their lunch during snack time however, if they do eat their lunch we will make sure they get a school lunch.
Snacks: We encourage families to send in healthy snacks if you are able. Healthy snack ideas: cheese sticks, fruits, vegetables, crackers, popcorn, yogurt etc...We recommend that you pack snacks in a separate area of their bag and make sure to tell your child where you are putting it. Many times children have no idea they have a snack.
Extra Clothes: We keep an extra set of clothes in each child’s cubby. A plastic ziplock bag will be sent home (given out at open house so we have they for day one) with a note to remind you to send in clothes. As the seasons change we will send home the bag to ask for new appropriate clothing.
Yellow Folders: We have yellow school/home folders. Please pack this in your folder everyday. This folder is collected each morning and sent home each afternoon. It is a way for us to communicate with each other. Please check the folder each night and we will do the same each morning!
