Lunch and Snack
Our lunch time is 10:50 to 11:15. Send lunch money or lunch with your child daily. If your child eats school lunch, your child will use their student number. Send a healthy snack with your child each day. A water bottle may be sent each day. Please label water bottle with your child’s name.
Absences & Tardiness
A note or an email should be sent within 2 days of an absence to be excused.
Your child is tardy after 8:30 am. After 11:45 attendance is counted as a full day. If your child has a fever or is throwing up, they should remain at home for at least 24 hours.

A conference can be scheduled with Ms. Reid anytime to discuss your child and their success in our classroom. Parent conferences will be scheduled during the fall and the spring.

Checking out Library Books
Your child may check out a new library book out daily, but their library book should be at school every Wednesday.
Rewards and Discipline – We use Class Dojo to monitor student behavior. Contact Ms. Reid for an invite to your child's Class Dojo account to enable you to monitor your child's daily behavior.
We send homework home at the beginning of the week (usually Mondays). Homework should take about 15 minutes each night. Be sure to read every day (Reading can be reading to your child, with your child, or listening to your child read). Return completed homework on Friday each week.
See supply list on Apex Elementary’s website. Be sure your child has extra clothing, towel, and large book bag.
Friday folders & class newsletter
Your child will bring their Friday folder home every week. Review everything inside your child’s folder. Complete and return any items that need to be sent back to school. Look for our class newsletter in your child’s folder. The newsletter has information about what we are studying and upcoming events.
You are welcome to send in a small treat (for example: Small cupcakes, popsicles, or cookies) for your child’s birthday. Your child will share this birthday treat at lunchtime. You are welcome to come to lunch and help pass out the treats. If your child’s birthday is in the summer, we are glad to celebrate their half birthday or you are welcome to choose a day near the end of the year – just let us know if you want to celebrate prior to the chosen celebration day.
Show and Tell
We do show and tell most Fridays. Your child may bring something to share or plan to tell something. Your child should be able to explain what it is and how/why it is special to them. If your child has something to share in a digital format, you are welcome to send it Ms. Reid via email.
We are looking forward to working with you and your child!
Please feel free to contact either of us at any time!
