TARDIES – It is very important for the kids to be at school on time each day. When the kids come in late, they miss an important time in the classroom. My mornings are set up for some “new day socializing”. This is chance for the kids to chat and get caught up from the day before. It is also a time of early morning directions on how the day is going to go, what to do for morning work, and our daily prayer circle. If they are late on Fridays, they are missing the same thing in Art class, since we have Art first thing at 8am. When they are late, they seem to be more frazzled because they are trying to get caught up and figure out what is going on in the classroom. I know some mornings can be rough, but please try to have the students to school by 8am when the tardy bell rings.
**PE NOTE – On the days that we change for PE (Thursday and Friday) the students will need to be sure and have pants to put on for dismissal. This could be just a pair of sweats/pajama pants/etc. or their uniform pants. As we get into the colder months, I do not want them walking out to the cars in shorts.
