Las Sendas Elementary
MRS. WIENKE’S EXPECTATIONS & PROCEDURES
7:45 am – 2:15 pm
7:45 am – 1:45 pm Every Wednesday
Each morning the students are to go directly to the Kindergarten Courtyard when they come to school, dropping their backpacks off at their teacher’s classroom door, then report to the FRONT PLAYGROUND. Supervision begins at 7:20 am. Students should not arrive prior to that time. The first bell rings at 7:40 am where students should line up at the BLUE DOT (painted on the sidewalk). After 7:45 am students are considered tardy and should check-in with the front office before proceeding to class. Should there be any changes in your child’s going home routine, PLEASE SEND A NOTE or CALL THE OFFICE with any changes. Your child’s safety is very important!
Please call the school office if your child is going to be absent. If you are going out of town or have an appointment you can call ahead of time: 472 – 8750. Regular attendance is important to your child’s success in school.
If your child is bringing money to school to purchase lunch and/or any other items please make sure the money is labeled with your child’s name, the amount, and what the money is for in an envelope or baggie. If money is not labeled, the money will be sent home.
P.E. – Mondays and Fridays
Be sure to wear appropriate clothes and tennis shoes.
Music - Fridays
Media Center -Thursdays
Please help your child remember to bring any library books back on this day. Should your child not return his/her book, they will not be allowed to check-out a new one. Should your child’s Library Book be lost or damaged, please contact our Resource Center Specialist - 472-8742
Computer Lab - Tuesdays
Toys at School
Toys are not allowed at school. During your child’s “Star Student of the Week” show and tell, your child can choose to bring something special from home – However, I ask that it is able to fit in your child’s backpack and will remain there until the end of the day. Toys will be confiscated and parents will need to retrieve them from me to be returned.
Volunteers are always welcome. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out a “Classroom Volunteer Questionnaire”, this will be sent home in September . I welcome volunteers in the classroom as well as “at home” volunteers. Check the “Volunteer Calendar” in the “Monthly Calendar Packet” for the schedule – in class volunteer days are Tuesdays - Fridays.
Please see the “Monthly Calendar Packet” for the Snack Calendar Schedule. If you are scheduled to bring snack, please provide a “healthy” pre-portioned snack for at least 28 students. It’s a long wait from breakfast to lunch and keeping the brain fed is important to a growing kindergartener.
Birthdays are special for Kindergarteners. I like to make it an important day for your child. On your child’s scheduled “Birthday Snack Day” feel free to send in a “sweet treat” instead of the usual “healthy” snack for our class to share. Please send pre-portioned snacks for at least 28 students. PLEASE NO WHOLE CAKES, CUPCAKES, OR DRINKS as these are too messy in the classroom.
Homework is very important in Kindergarten as it teaches responsibility, and it is a good review of skills that have been introduced. Beginning in September your child will be bringing home their “Homework Folder” for at home homework activities Monday – Thursdays. Parents are to complete these activities with their child and then the parent should initial the calendar. Return the folder the next school day – each homework activity should take about 15 minutes to complete. Also, any finished/ unfinished classroom work, such as Animated Literacy “Homework Pages”, will be sent home but I ask that they be completed and reviewed but NOT be returned as they are good references for your child to have at home. I will periodically send home “Family Projects” for students to spend time with their families to create something special for our classroom.
