Classroom Information

School Day: Our school day starts at 8:30AM and ends at 3:05PM. It is very important to have your child at school on time each day. It is also important that your child remains at school until the end of the school day. Students may eat breakfast or go outside when they arrive at school. They go directly to the playground and take their backpacks with them. They do not come to the classroom until 8:30. There is supervision on the playground from 8:00 - 8:30. After school, your child needs to go directly to their destination. Students are not allowed to play on the playground after school without adult supervision, due to safety concerns.

Breakfast: A breakfast program is offered for students from 7:45AM - 8:15AM.

Snack Time: We will have a snack each morning. Your child needs to bring a healthy snack for the day. I have a small refrigerator in the room to use for small items (yogurt, cheese) if the snack needs to be refrigerated. Snacks must be peanut free. Your child should also bring a water bottle filled with fresh water to school each day.

Lunch Time: We have recess and lunch from 12:15 - 12:55.

Phy. Ed.: We will have Physical Education on Mondays and Fridays. Please have your child wear tennis shoes on these days.

Music: We will have Music on Mondays and Fridays.

Library: We have library on Tuesdays. The books will need to be returned each Tuesday so the students may choose new books.

Recess: This is every afternoon for 15 minutes and every day after lunch; please make sure your child brings appropriate clothing for the weather.

Birthdays: Please refer to our birthday menu for information.

Book Orders/Others: Please sign and return forms by the date requested if you would like to order. If writing a check please make it out to the company name and not to me. We get free things for our classroom when you order items. You may also order online! Thank you!

Home Folder: Your child will bring a folder home each night and it needs to be brought back to school each day. Please check the folder each night to see things we have done during the school day, important and informational papers for you, and homework the students may need to complete. There will also be some paper books to practice reading and a weekly handout that will tell you the skills and high frequency words we will practice reading for the week. There will be an occasional Math sheet or Math game sent home for extra practice.

Lifeskills and Lifelong Guidelines: We will use these to help guide our behavior during the school day and become great citizens. We will also be using a program called Second Step to help guide us through the year.

Volunteers: I greatly enjoy having volunteers in my classroom and your children enjoy having you at school too. Please feel free to come in and volunteer in our classroom. If you would like to do this please call me to set up a day and time that will work for all of us. Also, if you are unable to volunteer in the classroom, I have many things that can be done at home and would help us out. The PTO (parent/teacher organization) is another great way to volunteer. Check out the Grimsrud website for more information on PTO.

Contact InformationPlease feel free to contact me at the school between 8:00 and 4:00. It works best to call between 8:00 - 8:30 and 3:15 - 4:00. The phone numbers is 323-4150. You may also email me at any time. My email address is: and is often the quickest way to reach me.
