Supply List 

PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE FANCY NOTEBOOKS,
 FOLDERS, BINDERS, ETC. for your child. They 
are expensive and I have already ordered every-
thing your student will need. It's my treat! I use
 color-coded resources to help with organization.
It will be easier for your child and for me if every
-one uses the same tools! I purchase the first set
of pencils, erasers, pencil boxes, notebooks,
scissors, glue, tape, crayons, folders, 
etc. for each child. After those are used up or 
lost, I appreciate it when parents replace sup-
plies. There is no obligation to do so :) Children 
often like to have their own supply of markers, 
extra crayons, pens, etc. for their personal use.

We can always use extra pencils, non toxic wipes
 for desks, tissue boxes, baggies in assorted sizes.


Frequently asked questions:

      Is there homework every night?

Check the homework section of this web site for further 
information. On rare occasions, if we have a test, a special
assembly or trip, there will be no homework, otherwise, 
assume there is. If your child forgets their folder please 
read a book from home. They may make up the homework the next day.
May I send in birthday treats?

Due to our school policy, no edible treats may be brought in toschool to 
celebrate birthdays. At JFK, we have a growing 
population of students with severe food allergies. Ingesting  the wrong
food could even be fatal to some students. For the safety and protection 
of all our children, please do not send in food for parties in school. You 
may send in a non-edible treatsuch as stickers, pencils, pads, or books. 
Or we can arrange for you to make a craft with our class, or share a favorite
 book. Contact me with your suggestion and we will work together to make it happen! 
Are there opportunities to volunteer in
the classroom?

Yes, I often look for parent volunteers for special projects, 
field trips or for on going activities. If you are interested in
helping drop me a note! Field trips always require help in the
 form of parent chaperones. I try to share the wealth and give
 every interested family a chance to chaperone in rotation. If I 
cannot find enough chaperones for a particular trip you may 
be able to go on a second trip with us.
If you would like to serve as a Mystery Reader, or share a special
talent, custom or tradition, please email me.
Do I need to call the school if my child will be absent?

If your child is sick, please call the school to report that your 
child will not be in school that day. You may leave a message
if the answering machine picks up. A note is required when your
 child returns to school. This needs to be done even though you 
have called school to report your child's absence. Absences are 
tallied and recorded on report cards.
