    Homework Clipart - Jensen's Yamaha Music School

    Please show your child that their homework is extremely important. Make it a priority; provide necessary supplies and a quiet work environment. It is a valuable aid in helping students to reinforce what is learned in the classroom and make the most of their learning experience. Set aside a daily time and provide praise and support. If I can offer any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Lunch Menus - Lyon County Elementary School

    Our lunch is at 12:15.  It is recommended that the children bring bagged lunches.  Hot and cold lunches will be available for purchase through food services (parents can load money onto accounts via the food services website).  We will not being have snack in class .  The students will be allowed to bring in water bottles.

    Nut Free Zone - Nut Allergy - Sticker | TeePublic

    Please be mindful of students with allergies. We are a peanut/nut free classroom. Please keep in mind if you eat a breakfast containing these ingredients it would be helpful to wash your hands thoroughly before getting to school. If your child is allergic to nuts and not required to sit at the nut free table during lunch, please be sure to send in a note the first day of school. 

    Important message attention please banner. Priority advice, paying att By  Tartila | TheHungryJPEG.com

    Parent/Guardians please check their folder and planner every night and send it back with them for the next in-person learning day. The students are required to write their homework in their planner everyday. I will not be checking the planners daily unless your child has a note written in it, in which they should show me first thing in the morning. This will help to foster independence for middle school.

    Important Notes

    Please label everything that comes in, including water bottles. And don't forget sweatshirts/jackets as the weather will start to get cooler!  This can be as easy as pinning a ribbon or piece of fabric inside the clothing, so you DO NOT have to write on it. 

    • In the backpack, it is also encouraged to have an extra mask incase the 1st one gets misplaced or dirty.  Please be sure that the clean masks are in a labeled bag or container. Dirty masks will just be put in their backpack so you know the difference.Please remember that it is mandatory that the children wear masks all day.
    • Our room gets chilly so I recommend the students bring a sweatshirt to keep in their backpack, especially at the start of the year when it is much warmer outside than in our classroom!
    • Please send in a note if there will be a change in dismissal for your child. All dismissal notes are sent down to the office in the morning. It is IMPORTANT that you date these notes, include your child's full name, and my name.
