General Information

The following information is a much needed guide to get us through a smooth school day.

Please have your child use the bathroom before leaving home.

All children should bring 2 snacks and 2 small drinks on all 12:10 dismissal days. If you are sending in water please send only the small-sized bottles.  On regular days children will need three small drinks.

Children need 3 clean face masks daily.  They should fit properly over the nose.

Please send in toy bags on the first day of each school week--maximum of 5-6 small toys.  They must be clearly labeled with your child's name.  The toys and the bag will be sent home on Fridays.  They must be washed and returned on Mondays.  It is suggested that you change out the toys frequently so your child does not get bored.  The children may not share toys and we do not have toys in the classroom.

Children should wear gym uniforms on Tuesdays (gym) and Fridays (fun food Fridays). Dress down or dress up fpr birthdays is pemissible and encouraged.  

Please practice buttoning pants and zippering skorts.  If girls are wearing the uniform skirt instead of the skort, please replace the button with velcro or a large snap.  Children should know how to put on and zipper their jackets.  Children may not wear boots during the school day .  Please send in a change of shoes during inclement weather.  The children may not wear tie shoes--absolutely no shoe laces.  

Please contact Harmony foods directly with questions or concerns about lunch orders.

Classroom skills to help with the transition to kindergarten:

All children should know their first and last names.Children should know how to write their first names with a beginning capital letter and all other letters in lower case.  The letters should be placed correctly in the writing space.

Children should recognize and write all upper and lower case letters of the alphabet and numbers 0 to 100. 

They should be able to color within the lines of a simple illustration.  

Please say the Sign of the Cross, Hail Mary and Our Father  at home with your child. 

Thank you for your cooperation and support.
