    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to Kindergarten! I am looking forward to an exciting new year with your child! 

    I cannot wait to meet your child on Orientation Day on Wednesday, September 1, 2021. AM session will meet at 9:00 AM and PM session will meet at 10:00 AM.

     

    We will be spending the first days together getting to know our room, school and each other! Here are some important things to help start the year off right…

    Teacher’s name: Mrs. Roth

    AM Paraprofessional: Mrs. Cook

    PM Paraprofessional: Mrs. Butkiewicz ( Mrs. B)

    Dress: Please dress your child comfortably and appropriately for school. We sometimes do some messy things and go outside! Please label all outerwear.

    Notices/class work:

    Please make sure your child has a backpack each day with his/her name on it. It is also important to remember to empty his/her backpack and folder every day! 

    Your child will receive a Mill Lake Falcon folder. We will put all important school notes inside this folder.  Please place any notes to me inside the Falcon folder.  Your child will hand in the folder every morning. It is part of our routine to place the folder inside a bin as they unpack every morning. 

    Your child will also have a classwork folder. This is one of the folders you are sending in from home. This folder will contain any work your child completed during the school day. DO NOT put important notes or homework in this folder. ALL NOTES go in the Falcon folder. 

    Day Care:

    If your child attends a day care situation directly before or after Kindergarten, please send him/her with separate folders for that program. This will help you know which papers/projects were done with me and will help your child in organizing and being responsible for his/her possessions. (Our folder is the Mill Lake Falcon folder!)

    Dismissal:

    If there is any change in your child’s dismissal procedure, you must give me written permission.  Please do NOT email me a dismissal change. If I am absent, the substitute will NOT receive the information.  I must receive this at the beginning of their day so that I have time to send your note to the office. No changes will be made unless we receive written authorization from you. EMAIL will NOT be acceptedIf dismissal plans change during school hours please call the school office.

    Snack:Milk and a small snack will be offered to all students for free. More information will follow shortly. 

    We will have snack daily.  You may send a drink and a small snack. PLEASE separate kindergarten snack and ECE snack! Do not put the kindergarten snack in the same lunch container as ECE lunch. Please label the container, KINDERGARTEN SNACK.  

    This is not lunchtime. Snack is your responsibility. I cannot give out any food. Please ask your child what they would like for a snack. Keep it simple. Please do not send any of the following items:

    • glass bottles sippy cups cans or soda Capri sun or juice pouches (they are difficult to open)

    Remember to send any utensils (spoons) needed for their snack. PLEASE make sure your child can open their snack by themselves.  The more independent your child is, the better for everyone!  

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me! 

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR COOPERATION!

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Roth
