    Once a week your child will bring home his/her red folder. It will contain important papers and work that has been completed in class.  Folders will also contain a nine week's calendar. At times, I may write messages of praise or a short note to express areas that could use some positive reinforcement at home.  Please empty the folder of all contents, sign, and return the folder to class the following day. 

    Conference Times
    My conference time is 12:30-1:00pm.  Formal conferences are scheduled for the end of October.  Conferences will be scheduled in 20 minute blocks.  Sign up times will be done through Sign-Up Genius.  Please look for the link in early October.  

    Snacks and Water Bottles
    Students are encouraged to bring a snack and water bottle to class. Snacks will be eaten during snacktime and water bottles will be used outside during recess and PE.  Snacks must be dry, healthy, disposable finger foods.  Water bottles must contain water only. Please do not send juice, sports drinks or sodas. These drinks can stain the carpet in our classroom if accidentaly spilled.  Bottles with a spout are preferred.

    Dismissal will follow the guidelines set forth by the front office.  Please be sure that you register any names of those people that will be allowed to pick up your child from school.  No child will be released to anyone without prior notification.  I will adhere to your child's normal method of transportation unless  otherwise notified in writing, e-mail, or by phone.  I will not accept word of mouth instructions from your child. This is for safety purposes. 

    Please choose clothing that is suitable for active play and weather conditions.  Make sure clothing does not hinder your child's ability to care for bathroom needs.  Make sure all removable items are marked with your child's name.  Please choose shoes that your child can tie or buckle independently.  Girls, please wear shorts under your skirts. Also, be sure to send an extra set of clothing in your child's backpack for unforeseen accidents. 

    Absence Reporting
    If your child is going to be absent, please contact the school.  When your child returns to school, you must send a note that includes the dates of the absence and your signature. You will have 3 days to send the excuse. 

    Behavior Management
    Behavior will be reported in your child's red folder.  Students will learn to SOAR at ESE. That means that each child will learn to be SAFE, ORGANIZED, ACCOUNTABLE, and RESPECTFUL. All classroom expectations will be positive and kind. 

    Any important notes or papers should be sent to school in your child's backpack or folder. Pleasse remind your child to deliver these notes to the teacher.     

    Please do not allow your child to bring toys or sports equipment to school. We will not be playing with home equipment or sharing items at school.   

    Cafeteria Menu and Payment 
    Parents can access cafeteria menus through our school website
    . Also,  payments for lunch can be made online using a credit card. It's always nice to have some back up money in your child's lunch account in case he/she forgets his/her lunch kit in the car on the morning ride to school.  

    Birthday Treats
    Birthday treats can only be shared and eaten during lunch.  Parents may choose to send a mini-cupcake, cookie, or purchase ice cream in the cafeteria for the entire class. Favor bags can not be given to students.
