Important Information

Please include a note in your child's Home Folder stating how they will be getting home normally. (walker/rider, bus, or After Care). Please keep us updated on how your child will be going home if it changes so we know how to properly dismiss them.  

Please read the email sent from Mrs. Fritzen on Sept. 6th regarding important Pick Up/Drop Off information.

***  Should you have a last minute dismissal change for your child, a note in their Home Folder is best. If the change occurs during the school day, first please send me an email. Also,   please   call the office. Thank you.

Due to the high amount of severe food allergies in our school and in our classroom, it is very important that all ingredients are checked on the snacks before you send them in with your child . If the food is "made in a facility that processes tree nuts or peanuts"  your child will not be permitted to eat it in school. Please check all of the labels that you purchase for school snacks or lunch. This is something we take very seriously.  Thank you for your kind consideration in this matter and the safety of all children.

2022-2023 School Year

Below is some information to help ensure your child has a successful year in first grade:

  • Please check your child’s homework every night.

  • It is important that your child arrives at school each morning between 7:30 and 7:45am as prayers begin at 7:50am and thus students will need time to copy their homework after unpacking their bookbag.

  • I ask that a parent/guardian signs under the homework assignments each night. This will let me know that you have seen the homework and what your child is learning.

  • For those students who attend the Aftercare program, please check to make sure the homework is completed and signed for the next day.

  • Each student should have their own pencil case. In addition to their school supplies, please make sure your child has at least 3  sharpened  pencils and an eraser for class each day. Be sure to check your child’s backpack for any supplies you may need to replenish throughout the week or as needed. 

  • Student Birthdays - We will celebrate the students birthday by giving them a dress down, a prize from the teacher and their name will be announced on the loudspeaker. 

  • Please make sure your child’s name is labeled on anything that is to be brought back and forth to school. You may want to write it on a tag or inside pocket of the item to ensure it is easier find if lost. 

  • Any money coming into school should have your child’s name on it, as well as how much money is being given and what it is for. Please put any money in a labeled envelope. 

  • I will be checking your child’s homework folder each morning for notes or forms that need to be handed in. 

  • Please refer to the school handbook for the proper dress code for uniform, gym, and dress down days, as well as other important school policies and procedures.

  • We are all a team!  — Positive reinforcement is important in making sure that each child knows that they can accomplish anything! Teachers and parents want success for the children, and no two students are the same, so let's work together to make your child learn to the best of their ability! I am looking forward to a fun and safe school year!

  • If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please feel free to email me at amdennis@sttaob.com.
