Many are not prepared each day and we spend a lot of our class time sharpening pencils or trying to locate crayons. PLEASE , if your child needs to replace crayons and needs sharpened pencils they are to come to school on Monday. This helps to make our day move so much smoother. Thanks.

**Also as the nicer weather is hopefully coming some of our little friends are becoming more distracted with the toys they are bringing to school. They are in their desks and are being taken to special classes as well. So at this time I have these items. Many reminders were given to put them in the schoolbags at the beginning of the day. They will get them back at the end of the school year unless you and I meet before that time. I hope this will cut down on the distraction and we will focus on our work. If we need to speak about this sooner, I will be glad to address this matter with you. Drop me an email and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you for addressing this matter with your child and I am hoping that the rest of this year moves smoother.

HAPPY CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK!!!

FYI!   Bathroom time in 1J has been out of control. It has become very disruptive to our learning time.  So in order to maintain our focus on learning I am asking you to speak to your child about the importance of using the bathroom. It is NOT a play room . We are to go in / use the bathroom/ wash our hands and return back to the classroom. We use the bathroom at least twice in the morning and once in the afternoon as a class. Emergency needs when noted go in between those times. So unless I hear from you in written form that your child needs to use the bathroom more often/ NO one will be allow to use the bathroom during our work time. Thank you  for addressing this matter  and I hope in the future this situation will get better.  Thank you. Sister Judy
