We are so excited to have your child(ren) as part of the YACS school family! Here are a few important things to know about our classroom -
You will be billed $60 for school supplies. This fee will help cover the costs of pencils, erasers, glue, markers, scissors, craft supplies, etc.
Your child will need a sturdy backpack to carry items to and from school each day. Please make sure it is large enough to fit your child’s lunchbox along with any LARGE library books and a school folder securely inside.
Kindergarten has a time for snack every morning. We have a Snack Center in the classroom that your child may purchase snacks from OR you may send a healthy item from home each day. Please be sure the snack is brain friendly - veggies, dried or fresh fruit, crackers, granola bars…
We have lunch at school in kindergarten every day - even early release days. Check the calendar for the Hot Lunch schedule. You may pay for Hot Lunch and Pizza Slices daily or purchase tickets from the office.
Sack Lunch: Include healthy items that your child would typically eat at home for lunch. Chips, gummy treats, cookies, and food covered in chocolate are better left for home. We do have a microwave for heating food and hot water available here in the classroom. Please send items that have already been prepared and just need a quick warming since we have limited time to eat.
Hot Lunch: YACS hot lunches are always vegetarian, very good, and only cost $3. The menu will be posted on-line and printed in the weekly Home-Word that goes home every Friday.
Pizza Fridays: On Fridays (except early release days) we have slices of cheese pizza available for $1.50/slice.
What to have your child wear:
- Being a private school we do have a dress code. Please refer to the school handbook for details.
- Please have your child wear comfortable, non-marking shoes that stay securely on his/her feet. Kindergartners are very active as you know and we want them to stay safe!
Please be sure to write your child’s name on his/her backpack, lunch box, jackets . . . everything that regularly comes to school. It is amazing how many items end up in our lost and found!
If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call.
