Each student will have a daily folder and will go home Monday through Thursday. It will remain in the class over the weekend. It is your student’s responsibility to bring their Daily Folder each day – this is part of their homework! In the front of the book are the daily communication calendar and comments log. Please feel free to leave any comments and/or notes for me in the front as I check this each morning.
Homework- Continue to practice their weekly Letterland Spelling words. I don't need to collect anything. Please keep these weekly lists in one place at home as they will need to review them for their tri-weekly assessments every 3 weeks.
I will communicate with you throughout the year utilizing the Daily Folder. We will also be updating what we are learning about on the team website each month. I encourage parents to view the website for the most current information; all important dates and reminders will be located right on the home page (this is updated constantly). If you have any questions or concerns you may call me at school at (919) 380-6988 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The website address is www.cahillfirst.weebly.com. If you do NOT have access to the internet, please let me know.
Every child has a lunch account linked to their WCPSS student ID. You may send in cash or check to add money to the account or you may go on www.mylunchmoney.com. You can check balances, add money, set spending limits, and/or add diet restrictions to your child’s account on the website. It is nice for students to have some money on their account in the event they forget their lunch. Please feel free to join your child for lunch anytime after the first two weeks of school. A lunch menu for the month can be found online at http://www.wcpss.net/parents/school-meals/.
Please provide a healthy snack and/or drink for your child each day. Remind your student to save their snack for later in the day rather than eating it at lunch. Classroom snacks are not provided by the teacher.
Our class will be divided amongst 2 other first grade classes during specials; Ms.Brady and Ms. Tartaglia's class. We are on a 5 day rotation and each child has their own specials schedule inside their daily folder. Students should wear sneakers on all PE days.
Library checkout for our class is every . Your child can keep their selected books for a week before returning them to the library.
