Snack and Water
Your child is welcome to bring a healthy snack and a water bottle to school each day to help between arrival and lunch. Please make sure it is something small that they can eat while we are still working without a mess.
Also, please send a water bottle with your child. This really helps in them not having to leave class and miss information to get water at the end of the grade hallway.

We are unable to have any food brought in, including birthday treats. However, we want your child to still feel special on their day. We will be celebrating your child with a birthday song and they will get fun privileges that day.
Familes are quite busy these days. We want to honor the time that you need to spend together as a family, while promoting the home-school connection through homework. Our homework will be purposeful and will seek to reinforce concepts that your student has learned in second grade. Optional homework will come home on Friday in their Daily Take Home Folder.
Some online options: log in information will be in your child's take home folder soon

We also encourgae our bison to read, read, read. The recommendation for 2nd grade is 20 minutes of at home reading a day.

Money Sent to School
Please send money (lunch, field trip, book fair, school store, to replcace ID tag, etc.) in an envelople or baggy labled with:

This helps us out a lot in getting it to exactly where it needs to be.

Teachers are given a change of transportation slip at the end of the day from the front office. If forgotten, you will have to come up to the school to change it, or send a a faxed note with a copy of your DL.
Please understand this is for the safety of your child.
Tardies and Attendance
Grades will consist of 3 categories.
Bison of the Week
This is a student who is showing great character, trying their best at school, and has great behavior.
The Bison of the Week student will take home a poster to fill in and decorate. We also ask that they provide a picture to go on it. If you don't have a picture I can always take one on Monday morning and print one for them.
The Bison of the Week in our class gets to sit in a special desk that gives them a little extra space and they get to have some extra supplies. They will also get to hand out bison bucks, have their shoes off all week, keep their water at their desk, answer the phone, and help the teacher out for the week.
