Some commonly asked questions:
May I send in birthday invitations?You may send in birthday invitations as long as you send one for every child in the classroom. There are currently 21 students in our classroom this year.May I send in cupcakes/cookies for my child's birthday?Yes, you may send in cupcakes/cookies. They will be passed out at lunchtime. You are welcome to come in during our lunchtime on that day to pass them out. I respectfully request that you contact me at least 2 days prior to the day you'd like to bring in or send in birthday treats, just to avoid multiple treats in one day. Thank you!When is Ice Cream Day and how much is it?Ice Cream Day is on Wednesdays and costs $1. I do not keep money in advance for ice cream. Your child will need to bring in their $1 the day of unless they have paid for the entire year.What is PBIS?
PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. The children know it as "Positive Behavior". It is a research-based framework for teaching and supporting positive behaviors for ALL students. The three expectations that we have been teaching this year are: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be SafeWhat are PBIS acknowledgments?PBIS acknowledgments occur monthly and are used to reward students who have displayed positive behavior. Each month there is a different acknowledgment. Students are allowed to participate if they have an 85% or higher average in ClassDojo, or have not had an office or bus referral. Every month is a new opportunity for children to earn participation in the PBIS acknowledgment! I will announce on my newsletter what they are and when they occur.What happens if my child forgets their homework or doesn't do it?
A neutral Dojo will be given for missing or incomplete homework. It is very important that your child take responsibility for their homework being put back in their white binder at night and ready to come to school the next day.May I bring my other children to parties and field trips?Since the focus of the parties and field trips is for the students to enjoy their time at school with their classmates and teacher, it is best that siblings do not attend these activities.When do we have class parties?We have two parties for the year: Christmas and Easter. Though we do not have a Halloween or Valentine's Day party, a treat bag will be sent home for these occasions.May I come to the parties?
Yes, you may come to the parties. However, all parents attending parties must complete the online Mandated Reporter Module, and turn in confirmation of completion to our front office. Please visit the EES website for more information.
**If your student comes to school and tells me that they've viewed a video or checked out one or more of the links on my website, they will earn a free trip to the Treasure Box!**
