  • August 1, 2018 : Lunchroom Tips
    To help make your child's lunch time experience easier, I suggest the following tips. 1. Pack your child's lunch with extra napkins or paper towels. Students are expected to clean up their area at the tables. Extra napkins or paper towels can help prevent messes or clean them up quicker! 2. Pack a drink in your child's lunch. Some children rely on the water machine at school to purchase a bottle. Unfortunately, the machine does not provide change, or sometimes does not take a particular bill or coin. To ease frustration, pack a drink in their lunch. 3. Pack food items that your child is able to open. For example, some Gogurt tubes, string cheese, or fruit cups can be tough. Be sure to show your child how to open them! Scissors are not available in the lunchroom. 4. Provide a spoon or straw if needed for a particular item. We do not have extras in the lunchroom. As a lunchroom supervisor, these are some of the observations I have made. I just wanted to share them with everybody!
  • August 1, 2018 : Additional School Supplies needed for Mrs. Zitkus
    As we all prepare for a fantastic school year, there are a few supplies I would like my students to have for my particular classroom. 1. I would prefer each student to have an accordion file / Dock-It organizer with eight or more pockets. Students will not use any three ring binders. Go ahead and return the binders if you already purchased them. We only use the Dock-It organizers. 2. I would like each student to have two cans of Playdoh. Color does not matter. Two different colors would be fun! We use Playdoh in Science class. Label each can with student's name. Playdoh will not be community property. 3. Art supplies will be needed right from the beginning. We start Art class the first week. 4. Students do NOT need protractors, any size index cards, post-it notes, or graph paper. Go ahead and return these supplies if you already purchased them. 5. Students only need ONE ream of loose-leaf paper. Go ahead and return the other reams or keep them at home. 6. I collect magazines for various projects in the classroom. If you have old magazines that you don't know what to do with, I will gladly take them. Thank You!
  • August 1, 2018 : Homework Tips for Parents
    Your child will be receiving homework this year. I would like your support by asking you to help your child, but do not do it for him or her. I need to see your child's best work. There are some things you can do to encourage your child to finish the homework. Tip #1 > Establish a time and place where homework is to be done. Make sure the table or desk is in a well-lighted area and clear of daily clutter. Be consistent with the time frame; whether it is directly after school, after snack time, or after dinner. Stick to the same time each day. Tip#2 > Make sure your child understands all assignments. If needed, work through the first question or problem together. Tip #3 > Each day ask whether there is any homework. Even when there isn't any, the simple act of asking conveys that you consider homework to be an important responsibility. Tip #4 > Praise your child for homework efforts!
