Take Home Folder:
Each student will have a ďTake-HomeĒ folder that will come home every day. Please check it for important papers and updates. Donít forget to sign the behavior calendar and keep it in the folder for the next day. You can send any notes back to school in the folder.

Our school works on the T-I-G-E-R schedule. Because of this, our specials do not occur every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. Instead, specials will fall on a T, I, G, E, or R day. When we have a day off of school, we will not have a letter day.

Here is our classroomís TIGER Schedule:
T day: P.E.
I day: P.E. & ELC (Library)
G day: P.E. & Music
E day: P.E. & Art
R day: P.E. & Technology

We have P.E. every day. Please remember to wear or pack gym shoes.
