• School attendance

    Children begin entering the classroom at 8:10 a.m. Students are considered tardy if they arrive after 8:30 a.m.  Arriving on time ensures your child gets his/her day off to a strong start and minimizes classroom disruptions for others.

     

    Parent/Teacher relationship

    Parents are the most important people in a child’s life, so we need to work together for the benefit of your child.  I need your support in my academic, homework and discipline efforts here at school.  In return, I will keep you informed about all aspects of your child’s experiences at school.  With school and home working together, I know that each and every student can have his or her most successful first grade year.

     

    Class Dojo

    All teachers at SWES will be using Class Dojo as a communication and behavior management tool. Please make sure you check it daily to keep up with things that are happening in the classroom.   

     

    Homework

    Students in 2nd grade will have homework Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  The work that will be completed at home will strengthen the skills they learn at school.  Each student will have math, word work and reading homework.  Homework will be checked each morning. 

    School fees

    The $5.00 instructional fee and the $1.00 art fee have been waived this year.  The $25.00 technology fee is still required.  This fee can be paid online.  Check out the school's homepage for the link.  

    Change of clothes

    Please send a change of clothes to keep at school. In the event your child needs to change, we will have an outfit on-hand.

     

    Snacks

    Please send a healthy snack to school with your child each day.  We will have a snack time at the end of the day.
