  3. Students are only allowed to have water in the classroom and may enjoy flavored drinks and juice boxes with their lunch. If you send a regular plastic water bottle with your student to school, PLEASE write their name on it. Many water bottles are getting mixed up at recess because they look alike.

  1. Our PE day is on Tuesdays this year. Please make sure your student wears tennis shoes on this day.

I look forward to meeting you and your student soon!
