Snack: Children will bring a healthy snack from home Mon. - Fri. Snack suggestions are in the ABC Duck Room Handbook. I encourage the children to bring a water bottle from home. Make sure it is labeled! Name Tags:Children need to wear name tags everyday for the first month. Tags will be pinned to backpacks after that. Please check the tags to make sure transportation is correct. If the back is blank, please check in the office so we can have the end of the day transportation on record. Backpacks:Every child needs to bring a backpack everyday. It needs to be large enough to hold the Friday Folder. Friday Folder: Every child will bring home a folder on Fridays. Please empty the folder and return it to school on Monday. The folder will carry your child’s work, notes, calendars, homework, and newsletters. Rest Time: Please send a towel or a small blanket to school for your child to use during a daily rest time. During the week, we will keep the towels and blankets in our cubbies. The blanket or towel will come home on Friday’s to be laundered. Please return it on Monday. Birthday:We do recognize birthdays in the Duck Room with a special activity. School policy states that treats from home are not permitted due to allergies and interruption to instruction. Also, birthday invitations may not be passed out at school. Fresh Air:We will go outside for recess daily unless it is raining or the temperature is below 0. Please make sure your child dresses appropriately.
