Check your child’s folder nightly for homework. Most nights Monday through Thursday, you will have one reading and one math sheet.

*When sending money to school, please place each type of money in its own
separate envelope labeled with your child’s name, what the money is to be
used for, and Minton. (Example: one envelope for lunch money, a separate
envelope for popsicle money, a separate envelope for candy sales,
etc.). Thank you very much.

Our enrichment rotation is as follows: P.E., art, French, music. Please
remember that students must wear tennis shoes on P.E. weeks. Due to
Running Club, they should also wear tennis shoes every Wednesday
regardless of the enrichment that we are attending. In addition, girls are asked to
wear shorts or bloomers under skirts or jumpers.
