Students are provided with a Daily folder. They will bring this folder to school and take it home each day. Please set aside time each day to check your child’s folder for notes, homework, book orders, etc. Any correspondence from home can be indicated on the communication log placed inside the back cover. 

     Please be sure any school notes, or money sent to school is placed in an envelope ( or baggie) labeled with your child’s name, teacher’s name, and reason for sending it (lunch money, book order, PTA) is written clearly on the front, and placed within the daily folder.


    I set aside time each morning for the children to enjoy a healthy snack. A light nutritious snack will provide the children with an extra energy boost to help them through the long morning. All classrooms are Peanut Free!!!  You may not send any items that may contain peanut products. Good choices include: fruit, raisins, veggies, pretzels, cheese, yogurt. Please do not send munchies or desserts for snack break.


    I look forward to making every child’s birthday extra special for them! Coolidge Elementary has gone treat free! You may send in a ‘trinket’ to share with classmates on your child’s special day. One days notice is greatly appreciated. Also, please refrain from delivering birthday invitations at school. This prevents hurting the feelings of those children not invited to the celebration.


    Second grade students will attend Music, Art, Library, Physical Education, and Computer Lab each week at 11:15 daily. 


    Follow our class @mrsallensteam on twitter. This will be my primary means of communication throughout the school year. I will post pictures and give you a daily talking point to begin discussions about your child’s day at school.
