I don’t know about you - but this past week seemed really long! Thank you for all of your hard work to prep for Muffins with Mom - so many smiling faces in all of your rooms (hopefully) makes it all worth it! As the days left in school begin to decrease, you may see an increase in naughty behavior - be sure to take a deep breath and remember you’re almost there! This weekend brings a full moon and next week brings with it the CPD horses and the ice cream social on Thursday, so you may need to be just a little more patient that usual.

On Wednesday and Thursday there will be re-screening for hearing and vision - Heather will let you know if any of your kiddos will need to be pulled, she will also come and get them for the screenings. If you have any questions, please talk to Heather.

Please make sure you are sending Carol your chaperone names for the zoo as soon as possible - there are so many field trips in the next few weeks, she’s going to have a lot to check. The sooner you get her your names, the better!

Below I have linked the K-5 end of year checklist which has a few of the links in it, that you need. I also put the student card guide, along with the birthday cheat sheet. Please make sure you are writing the child’s actual birthday along with his/her birth date in years and months - this is super helpful when I’m making class lists. Obviously, this doesn’t need to be done for the Kindergarten cards, as they’re all the same age in the class. Just a friendly reminder, please don’t write anything on those cards that you wouldn’t want a parent to read (just stick to the hole punch for behavior concerns). Also, if you’re not sure if a child is returning, go ahead and make them a card.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Have a great weekend!

Things to do when taking attendance: (K-5)

  • - Take daily attendance by 8:30am each morning

  • - Every student needs a mark (P, AU, TU) DNA is a mark used for preschool, please do not use that mark.

  • - IF AU is marked, you MUST put a comment!

  • - Put a comment even if it is the same comment from the day before (for a kid who is missing a few days in a row.)

  • - If you don’t know the reason for the absence, you MUST still comment: "no note," or "not sure" or "I don’t know," and even ‘idk’ will be acceptable!

  • - You can make changes up to 9:00am

  • - If it is after 9:00am and you need to make a change, contact Carol
