UPDATE for FIRST GRADE FAMILIES: Please bring in a 2'' 3-Ring Binder for your first grader's Portfolio!
Dear 1-2 Family Group,
We hope you had a wonderful and fun-filled summer, we certainly did. The first day of school is nearly upon us and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on a year of learning with you. Here is some information about the upcoming school year to help prepare you and your child for the wonderful school year to come!
The first week of school will be primarily for 2nd graders, taking part in our “Elder Training”, however, we asked parents of 1st graders to sign up students for a morning session on either Thursday, August 25th OR Friday, August 26th to be introduced into the classroom by the elders and “coached” for the upcoming year. Their true first day will be on Monday, August 29th. If you have not signed up your 1st Grade student please do so here:
In regards to supplies, rather then preparing a list we request that you pay a classroom supply fee of $35 (please make checks out to BOOP), allowing us to purchase consistent supplies in bulk for the different family group needs this year. The BOOP program as a whole additionally asks for a separate donation of $35 to fund program events. If you’d like to pay both at once please just put in the memo line on checks “$35 for ½, $35 for BOOP”. The only specific request we have is to ask that Families with last names A-H bring in disinfectant wipes, I-P bring in tissues and Q-Z bring in Ziploc bags.
There will be many classroom events and meetings over the first couple of weeks of school, including the opportunity to hear about our philosophies and plans for the year, as well as a “Parent Volunteer Training” where we will introduce you to the many different ways you can participate in and support learning in our classroom.
Stay tuned for these, and other, program and school events!
All our best,
Rosalind and Shoshana
