First Grade Tips

Wear "playground safe" clothes and shoes daily.  Make sure your child can wear shoes they can manage on their own (slip on, velcro, laces)... if they cannot their own shoes, please don't send them to school in lace up shoes.  No light-up or wheeled shoes please.
Clean out their backpacks often. Please keep all toys, trinkets, jewelry, and special treasures at home. 
Weekly envelopes are sent home weekly with school paperwork and some classwork.   Please empty the envelope and send it back the following day.  

     Label backpacks and all water bottles, lunch boxes, hats, sweatshirts etc. with first name and last name. (Sally Gomez or Sally G.) The Lost and Found is by the lunch tables if you need to find something you can come in after school.

    Please choose a simple backpack that can hook up and that your child can open/close on their own. No wheeled, suitcase backpacks please. These are difficult in crowded hallways.
