McBean Elementary School
I am looking forward to the upcoming school year! In my classroom, children will be given the opportunity to learn and grow in a caring, structured environment in order for them to be successful in their academic studies. I believe that teachers, administrators, support staff, and parents should work cooperatively to create a school atmosphere that promotes a love of learning.
Your child will have a homework folder that should be brought to school each day. Anything you need me to see (i.e. notes, transportation changes, money for functions) should be sent to school in the homework folder. Please check the homework folder each evening for notes from the teacher and homework. In order to complete homework, your child will need these materials at home: pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue.
Breakfast starts at 7:45am. School starts at 8:15am. After the first week of school, we ask that parents do not walk their children all the way to their classroom. Please drop your child off in the front of the building. Someone will be at each hallway to help your child get to the correct classroom.
School ends at 3:15pm. If you choose to pick your child up from school, you must remain in your car in the car rider line at the front of the building. School staff will be outside to deliver car riders to vehicles. If your child is a bus rider or going to the community center, prime time, or a daycare van, teachers will make sure they go the appropriate line during dismissal. Please send a written note if your child will go home a different way.
Please let me know if your child is to be given any medicine during school hours. Do not send medicine to school in your child’s book bag.
Our class will have snacks at the end of each day. Your child’s snack day will be listed on a snack calendar in their homework folder. Richmond County requires healthy snacks, such as fruit, goldfish, graham crackers, yogurt, etc. If you have questions about what qualifies as a healthy snack let me know. Reminder: No snacks that contain Peanuts.
If you need to contact me for an appointment, concerns, or any other reason, please call the school at 706-592-3723 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get back with you as soon as possible. I am very excited to be a part of your child’s journey through Kindergarten! With parents, teachers, and school staff working together, success can be accomplished!
Thank you, Mrs. Cooper.
