General Information


General Information
Below is some general information you may need to know. If you can't find something here that you are looking for, let me know and I can help you out.


Absent Note
If your child is absent, please be sure to call and/or email the school.
Phone: (610)-489-2991 
Email: Kim Jones – kajones@pvsd.org

Behavior/Discipline
Individual: clip chart that allows for students to move up and down on depending on their behavior. This chart is to help show the positive behavior in the classroom.

Whole Class: the class will work together to receive marbles to fill up a jar. The class can receive a marble for good behavior at lunch, recess, special, in the hallway, and in the classroom. Class compliments count as double marbles. Once the jar is filled the class will decide on an activity or prize.


Birthdays
Most children like to celebrate their birthdays at school. If you would like to send in a non-food/non-latex birthday treat for your child, please feel free to do so. Please just give me a quick heads-up so I know. Summer birthdays will be celebrated in June. We currently have 20 students in our class. STUDENTS MAY NOT HAND OUT ANY BIRTHDAY PARTY INVITATIONS IN CLASS


Family Trips
If you are going on a family trip during the school year and your child will be missing school, you must fill out an educational trip form. The form must be handed in one week before the trip and approved in order for absences to be considered excused. 


Homework
Homework is given on a daily basis. The objectives of homework are:
1. To reinforce the skill(s) learned that day
2. To inform you as the parents on what your child is learning in school.
3. To help your child learn responsibility.

Recess/Lunch
Your child will have recess every day from 2:30-2:55.
Your child will eat lunch each day from 12:25-12:55.


Pick-Up
When you need to pick up your child from school whether it is during the school day or at the end of the day, you MUST notify the school and me. You can do this by sending in a note with your child or emailing me AND Kim Jones (kajones@pvsd.org) in the office.


South Folder
Your child has a South folder that he/she takes home every day. The South folder will have your child’s homework, important papers, and papers from the day that can stay home. Be aware of the “take home” and “return to school” sides.  This is an effective way for us to communicate.  There will be many notes in there from me or from the school that may be important.


Snack
Students may bring in a snack to eat every day.  If your child does bring in a snack, please make sure it is healthy and non-peanut/tree nut. Pretzels, crackers, fruit, veggies, goldfish, and animal crackers are some suggestions. PLEASE DO NOT SEND IN JUICE OR CANDY. Your child may bring in a water bottle to drink from throughout the day.


Water Bottles
Your child may bring in a water bottle to drink from throughout the day
