It is a very busy place! We sing, exercise, and do many activities. I have a leader for the day as well as table captains for the day. We rotate daily . We do evaluations on Friday and sometimes during the week as well. Miss Katrina is our teacher’s aide in the classroom this year. Under my guidance, she will be working with our students who need extra help with reading skills.
We have a set of rules that are also life long rules:
1. Follow directions
2. Be respectful
3. Keep your hands, feet, and other objects to yourself
4. Speak with permission
Attendance is extremely important!! If your child must be absent it is helpful to call and let me know what is happening. My extension is #6303. You can send a text thru DOJO too. I check it daily. The office decides whether the absence is excused or not; but if you do have a doctor’s statement it is still an absence but it will be excused. After five unexcused absences paperwork is filled out for Truancy and turned in to our Counselor, Mrs. Little. You are allowed 10 absences per semester.
