WELCOME TO ROOM 110 AND THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR! I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO A WONDERFUL YEAR! PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO REVIEW THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION REGARDING THE CLASSROOM ROUTINE AND SCHEDULE.

 

ARRIVAL/BREAKFAST:

Breakfast will now be served at 7:30-7:42 in the gym. Students will then be asked to clean up their area and line up in their homerooms designated area for the school song and pledge. PLEASE be on time!! Breakfast will be served between 7:30 and 7:42. Students who come late will not be denied a breakfast but will be asked to eat before going to class, therefore will be missing very important instruction. 

 

SNACK:

Student will have a snack daily. Please send your child with a small snack every day (separate from their lunch).

 

LUNCH/RECESS: 11:50-12:35

 FREE lunch will be offered to all students in CPS if they wish. Please look for the monthly food calendar that will be sent home with students.

 

Students will be going outside in all types of weather for recess. Please dress your child for the weather. 

 

HOMEWORK:

Students will receive a homework packet on Monday and it is expected to be completed and returned on Friday. Homework is not meant to be challenging and stressful but is used as a review of skills taught and learned during the school day. Homework is taken as a participation grade, so please try your best to complete with your child.

 

FOLDER/COMMUNICATION:

Students will be provided with a home/school folder that is to come back and forth daily. One side will be labeled stay at “home” and the other bring back to “school”. If you need to reach me for any reason I ask that it is via email mncasasanto@cps.edu.  I check my emails daily I will respond that day depending on time email is received.  

You can also check the school website http://www.clissold-school.org  for upcoming dates and events as well as find my individual page where I will post important information specific to my class. PLEASE check your child’s folder daily. Important notes and reminders will be sent home in their folder as well.

DISMISSAL:

All students will dismiss with their homeroom teachers at the same door as arrival.

 

FIELD TRIPS:

Students will be taking 1-2 field trips a month with their homerooms. Chaperones are always needed so please feel free to sign up when needed!
