Week of September 12th

Posted by Amy Petrini on 9/16/2022

We are just completing our first full week of school.  Here are a few reminders, upcoming events, and other important information:

  • Green folders- these will come home on Fridays and should come back the following Monday. Please help to remind your child to take it out of their backpack to unload over the weekend. On Monday, remind them to give it to me.
  • This week's folder includes book orders. I would like your orders back on Monday too. Check out the online ordering option for more variety and ease of paying. I also have a wishlist if you would like to contribute to our classroom library.  https://orders.scholastic.com/TF6K4
  • Please let myself AND the office know about any scheduled absences or days/times that you will need to pick up your child early. This helps me to rearrange my schedule if needed.  I prefer an email but you can also call the office, and they will forward it to me.
  • We will have our first field trip to the PEAS farm next Tuesday, September 20.  We will leave school at 1 and return around 3. Please let me know if you can join us either by walking with us or by meeting us there.  You will need to fill out the "opt out" form if you would NOT like your child to participate.
  • Speaking of forms... please make sure that you have all of your child's forms signed. These were sent via email by the district.  I particularly need the forms regarding field trips and permission to use computers.  Here is some info from our principal:  You should have received an email directly from the district encouraging you to fill out the required annual forms.  These include things like:  annual field trip form, technology use forms, Google Suite permission and more.  If you are in need of hard copies of these forms, please let me or the office know.  I will be happy to send them home.  Annual forms may be completed online for this school year using the Infinite Campus Parent Portal found on the MCPS website (www.mcpsmt.org). Step-by-step instructions for filling out these forms in Infinite Campus are attached to this email. 



Thanks and have a great weekend. Fingers crossed that we get more of these blue skies.
