    • Absences: Please post absence to Parent Portal or send in an excuse note upon your child's return to school.

    • Wednesday Folder: Every Wednesday your child's folder will be sent home with graded work and any important papers. Please review it and return the folder the next day.
      • Tests, Quizzes and graded Writing Pieces will need to be returned. All other classwork can be kept at home.


    • Please send in one healthy snack each day (even on early dismissal days)
    • Please send your child in with a filled water bottle daily (no juice please). Water fountains have been removed from the building. However, we do have filtered water bottle filling stations in the building.


    • Your child has the option of packing lunch or buying lunch.
    • If your child is buying lunch:
      • Please send lunch money in a sealed, labeled envelope so it will not be lost. 
      • Another option is to set up a lunch account through the CB website - This way your child won’t need to carry any money.  I highly recommend this option! (


    • All third grade students will receive a district laptop, charger and case for the 2023-2024 school year.
    • Laptops and chargers should come to school DAILY and travel in their case to prevent any damage.
    • Students are expected to charge their laptop each night at home.
    • We will spend time in class learning everything your child will need to know about using their laptop for classroom instruction.


    • Student birthdays will be recognized and celebrated at school. However, food treats are not allowed to be brought in for birthdays.
      • If your child wishes to share a treat with the class, they are encouraged to bring in pencils, bookmarks, erasers etc. for ALL students in the class.
    • Party invitations may be passed out at the end of the school day only if there is one for every student.


    • Student supplies for the year are posted on our class website.
    • If you are unable to get them or getting them creates a financial hardship, please let me know, and I will be happy to help so all children have supplies.

    Parent Volunteers: 

    • I will be discussing volunteers needed this school year on Back To School Night.
      • Please keep in mind that in order to volunteer in the classroom throughout the year, you will need to have the required paper work/background checks. For more information visit  


    • Toys and electronic devices become a distraction and can easily be broken or misplaced at school. Students should not bring toys or electronics to school.
    • Fidget Toys: Some children focus better with the use of a small fidget toy, but some students become easily distracted by them. If your child brings a fidget to school but it becomes a distraction, you will be notified and it will be sent home.
