Founder's Day: We hope you can join us at the Buffalo PRIDE Founder's Day on Friday, September 30th. It will take place 5-9 p.m. at the VHS football field. Mrs. Henderson and I are teaming up for the Gold Fish Toss booth. If you signed up to volunteer, I will be sending home reminders in your child's take home folder this week. We can't wait!
Class Picture Day: Smile! Our class picture day is Wednesday, September 28th. This will also be our make up/missed picture day, as well! Uniforms are required.
GreenMeadows Farm:It's time for our first fieldtrip! We're going to GreenMeadows Farm in Kissimmee on Wednesday, November 2nd. Check it out at www.greenmeadowsfarm.com. Paperwork has been sent home, but you can find another copy attached below. Parents who wish to chaperone must have a completed Volunteer Application and a copy of their driver’s license submitted to VCS by October 3rd to be eligible to attend. Please one chaperone per family. Parent chaperones will earn 5 hours of PI service time. The cost of the trip will be $25.00 for students which will include admission and charter bus transportation; the cost for parents will be $10.00 for an admission fee. Please make checks payable to VCS. Payment and consent form are due no later than Tuesday, October 11th. As with all field trips, no refunds will be given once payment has been made, and no late payments will be accepted.
Snack: Please remember to pack your child a healthy snack every day. Please no snacks that contain nuts or peanuts. Please do not put snacks in a lunch box. If your child's snack needs to be chilled, we have a small fridge in the classroom. Also, please do not pack your child a drink for snack. Children have access to a water foutain in the classroom. Please label your child's snack with his/her name. Children will unpack their snack every morning, so please make sure children know where their snack is located in their backpack. It is also helpful if you discuss your child's lunch choices before he/she gets to school in the morning as students also make their own lunch choices. If you would like to donate extra snacks for our snack cabinet, please let me know.
Homework: Homework goes home every Monday and is due back on Friday. Please be sure to return the homework in the homework folder. Please review homework with your child and initial every homework page. Also, please use pencil, unless otherwise noted.
Our classroom would love the following donations: treasure box items (new or used) small toys for our treasure box and peanut free snacks for our snack cabinet. Thanks so much!
I appreciate each and everyone of you! Together, we will work together to make this is successful and wonderful school year. Again, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know. You can write a note in the agenda planner, send an email, or phone me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put "student" in the subject line. My rule of thumb is, if you have not heard back from me by the end of the day, I probably did not get your message or it went to my spam folder. Good communication is very important to me. Thanks so much!
