Graded papers will be sent home in your child’s folder every Thursday along with any school information. Please sign the folder and have it returned to school by Monday. Please do not put important notes or money in this folder.


Class Website

Each week the class websites will be updated with the weekly skills and any other important information about upcoming schools events. You can find our class website through the OGCE home page.




1.      If you would like to send snacks for special days (ex. birthday), please let us know. You may send them with your child or bring them to lunch.

2.      Your child may bring a water bottle to class. We have many Ipads, Kindles, etc., so the bottles should have a secure top. We ask that you not send flavored water, juice, sodas, tea, etc.-water only.

3.      We are not allowed to have a child verbally say he or she will be going home a different way. A note must come from home, or you may call the office before 2:00 to ensure that the new information gets to your child before dismissal time.

4.      Lunch prices have increased to $2.75. Reduced lunch prices will remain the same.

5.      No cell phones can be seen or heard in the classroom. Cell phones must remain in backpacks and be turned off/silent.
