KINDERGARTEN IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

SCHOOL ADDRESS AND PHONE:

5625 23rd Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN  55417 -  Room 107 - 612-668-5040

 

MRS. SCHULZ’S SCHEDULE:

If you need to contact me, it is best to call at school from 8:45-9:30 or 4:05-4:15.

The best way to contact me by e-mail Shannon.Schulz@mpls.k12.mn.us

 

SCHOOL SCHEDULE:

9:40-4:10

 

ATTENDANCE:

Consistent daily attendance is essential, so please try to have your child here on time each day.  If your child is sick, please call the attendance office and speak to the health assistant at 612-668-5045, and send a note with him/her the day of return.

 

TRANSPORTATION:

Riding the school bus is a new experience for many kindergartners, and it can be very confusing for the children.  It is very important to have your child's bus tag attached to his/her backpack.  Make sure your child knows his/her bus number.  If you have questions or concerns regarding transportation, please contact the staff at the Transportation Department directly at 612-668-2300.

 

EMERGENCY CARDS:

It is very important to complete the emergency information form and return it to the school immediately.  If your address or phone number changes during the school year, please notify the office with updated information.

 

LUNCH

We will eat lunch at school at 12:00.  Every child is assigned a lunch account number.  I will send the number home with your child so he/she can practice learning the number.

 

SNACK

We will be having daily snack in the afternoon.  Please send store-purchased snacks to share with the class.  I will make a note in our newsletters when we are running low.  Snack ideas are as follows:

Vanilla Wafers, Ritz Crackers, Pretzels, Goldfish, Teddy Grahams, Cheez-Its, etc.

COMMUNICATION FOLDERS:

A family/classroom communication folder will be sent home once a week with family newsletters, school information, papers to sign, etc.  Please read all information and return the folder in your child’s backpack.  These folders will be sent home on Wednesdays, and I ask that they be returned by the following Tuesday.

 

HOMEWORK:

Please read to your child every day.  Research says that children who are read to at home daily become better readers and do better in school!  When we start ST Math, students can work on the program at home.

BIRTHDAYS:

Due to a new district policy, students are no longer able to bring snacks in to the class (cupcakes or cookies) as a way to celebrate birthdays.  We will, however, observe birthdays in our class.  As an alternative to sharing food, families are encouraged to donate a book to our class birthday book box.

 

BOOK CLUBS:

Each month, your child will receive a book order form in his/her Wednesday folder.  If you would like to order books, you can order online or send in your child's form by the 15th of each month.  Our class online order code is HN4YV.  Your child will receive the books you ordered by the 22nd (or so) of each month.  

FAMILY VOLUNTEERS:

I encourage family involvement in the classroom, and welcome parent volunteers.  Volunteer opportunities include regular work with students, running stations for our celebrations, chaperoning on field trips, reading to the class activities, and lunchroom help.  Please let me know if you are interested!

QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS:

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to call, write, or e-mail me at school.  I will check my e-mailmail before and after school each day. 

612-668-5040           

The best way to reach me is via e-mail.  shannon.schulz@mpls.k12.mn.us

I’m looking forward to a GREAT year!
