April Showers Bring May Flowers, Welcome to May 2020!!

Dear Parents and Guardians! 
Be sure to check your children's backpacks today after school or at the soonest possible for important notices that were added, as well as their paintings from Wednesday's Take Me Outside Day! Please be sure to find your child's bag of reusable masks as well in their backpacks and please WASH them! This is very urgent to keep the spread of germs down.
Please find the most beautiful spot in your house to display this ORIGINAL masterpiece painting that your child had worked so patiently on! 
Thank you and have a lovely weekend!!
Ms. Ellison and Brittany!

Parents and Guardians, 
Please check your child's homework folders for all forms that need to be completed and returned tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 21. 
Students, PLEASE be sure to have an adult READ your book with you. Parents and Guardians, please ensure that you read the book that your child has brought home, with your child. These are books that are not at their reading level but are sent home to ensure Book Talk and discussing, as well as sharing ideas about the story that you have read to them. PLEASE do NOT make them read the story by themselves, as stated, these are not at their reading level and will cause frustration. These books are sent home for enjoyment to listen to, but the children may point out words or phrases that they recognize and they may "help read the story".
New spelling words for this week will be sent home in tomorrow's homework! 
Thank you, 
Ms. Ellison
Have a wonderful evening, you have a gift of sharing bonding time with the book and your child tonight!

Hey Parents & Guardians! 
I have a few things that need to be covered for this week!
Please ensure that your child's homework folder and any information forms are completed and returned as soon as possible, preferably the next day. 

There have been two forms that have been sent home: Student Information form and NB Public Library Permission Forms for a Library Card. Please be sure these are completed and returned. 
Please provide updated contact information on the Student Information form! 
Lunch AND goody cart money: If you do not wish to send goody cart money, please provide a healthy snack for recess. If your child does not choose from the lunch menu, please send a bagged lunch with your child in the morning for their daily lunch. Dropping off lunches throughout the day is no longer an option due to the Covid-19 Safety Protocol at every school.
Lunches cannot be reheated and there is no microwave service.
Lunch is $2.00 a day and Goody Cart snack is $0.50 per day, of which I am keeping track of on a daily basis. I will send a note home, prior to your child's money running out to send a reminder for you! 
Masks: I am also asking parents and guardians to please ensure that your child has a mask daily, preferably one that can be brought home at the end of the day and washed immediately. If you cannot provide a reusable mask, please ensure they have a disposable mask. These are to be worn on the bus, am and pm and in the hallways at school. It is not required outside, but it is definitely your child's choice. 
Indoor AND Outdoor Footwear: Please ensure that your child has two pairs of footwear, one for inside the building and gym class and one for outside and home. The Indoor sneakers will be kept at school in your child's class.
Appropriate dress for outdoors: Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather, outdoor sneakers or shoes, sweaters or hoodies, coats, rainboots for rainy days! 
Book Orders: I will be attaching a digital copy of this month's Scholastic Book Order to this note. If you wish to order for your child, please have the item numbers, price for each item, quantity and total of your book order, with your child's name on it, and send it to me, also, I will be sending home a paper copy this weekend, to be returned by September 25, 2020.
I will be contacting parents with some information to help you get acquainted to me and our classroom EA, Robert Joe! I will provide you with means to contact me, as well as any other information I can provide for your questions! 
DO NOT HESISTATE to contact me at any time for concerns or questions you may have!
Thank you and have an awesome weekend, my Busy Bees and Families!
Ms. Ellison & Robert!
