   In writing this letter we hope it will help you to know what to expect in kindergarten this year and answer any questions you may have.  I would like to take this time to introduce myself to you.  My name is Lauren Pisani (was Hahn) I recently got married on June 22 of this year.  I have been teaching in the district for ten years.  I taught second grade for three years and have taught kindergarten for the past seven years.  
I am very excited to be working with your child this year and helping him/her to achieve his/her full potential.  Throughout the remainder of this letter, I will share some of my common beliefs and classroom policies with you.

Lunch Money:

       In order to avoid any confusion with money sent to school it is extremely helpful to us if you put the money in an envelope with their name on it and place it in your child’s folder.

         Please write your child’s name, what the money is for (i.e. lunch money), and how much money is in the envelope.



     During class, we will have a short snack time everyday.  The school does not provide snack and we ask that all parents please send a small snack for their child.  Please make sure your child knows which food is for snack time and which is for lunch.



     We ask that you check your child’s folder everyday and send it back to school everyday.  Use your child’s folder to communicate with us.  We will use the same folders everyday, but please note that important papers from the school will be sent home on Thursdays.  To avoid confusion, we will not be using separate folders for Thursday Folders. 



         Homework will not start until the end of September.  I will send home more information explaining our homework policy.



     Please send an extra change of clothes to school in a Ziplock bag with your child’s name on it.  We also ask that you send your child to school with a sweater or sweatshirt that can be kept in their cubby.  Our room can be chilly at times with the air conditioner.


Changes in Pick Up


If you plan change the person who is picking up your child, you must send a written note.  Please do not rely on your child to tell us this information, because children often become confused and relay messages incorrectly.   

We have Gym on Friday.  Children should come prepared with sneakers and if girls are wearing skirts/dresses they should wear shorts underneath. 
In closing, I would just like to say that we are looking forward to a great year of working with your child!  Any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
