    Breakfast, Snack, and Lunch

    Breakfast begins at 7:00 a.m.  Snack time will be at any time after 9:30 when they are hungry.  Your child is responsible for bringing his/her own healthy snack every day (fruits, vegetables, pretzels, goldfish, crackers, etc.).  In addition, please provide snacks that are easy to manage and will not spill or need additional clean up. Snacks should not need a utensil.  Please do not send any juice. WATER ONLY. Please send water in a spill proof/leak proof container if at all possible. Do not send any snacks with nuts in them. We have allergies in the class that could pose a very severe risk to them so please be diligient about checking your child's snack.  Lunch will be from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The cost of breakfast is $1.50 and the cost of lunch is $2.50. 

    Parents are welcome to eat lunch at the assigned parent table with your own child.   

     

    Birthdays

    Birthdays are very exciting and the children love to celebrate with each other.  You may only bring individually wrapped goodies that list all the ingredients on each bag.  No cupcakes.  Students must take them home to eat them.  If you would like to pass out invitations for a birthday party, I would be glad to do so, however please make sure that you have enough for each child in the class, all of the girls, or all of the boys in the class.

     

    Volunteers

    Everyone is encouraged to be a volunteer in third grade. There are many different volunteer opportunities for you to take part in. Some of the opportunities include PTA, classroom help (prepare materials, copy, cut laminated materials, room parents), and field trips.  Another way to volunteer is by donating classroom materials that have started to run scarce. 

    *Please remember, in order to volunteer in the classroom, come or help with parties, or work with the children, you must have a background check completed and on file. You must re-apply at the beginning of every school year.

     

    Classroom Parties

    There will be 3 classroom parties throughout the year; a winter celebration, a friendship party, and an end of year party.

    Homework

    Homework is optional and only sent home upon parent request.  Occasionally I will send something home for all students if it might be beneficial to them.  It will be optional though.

    Tutoring

    Tutoring will be provided through the year by invitation only.  I use data from class lessons, small groups, district assessments, and MAP test data to determine who to invite.
