It's that time of year for boots, snowpants, gloves, scarves, etc! Some helpful reminders to make sure your student does not lose items or get too chilly!
-Extra socks (for days when snow gets into boots)
-Label ALL belongings (black is a popular color of snowpants)
-Send in shoes to change into (so they are not wearing boots all day)
-Show students where to store gloves, scarves, hats, etc. (many just throw them in their locker and they get lost...)
-Mittens/Gloves are important (remind your student about the importance of wearing them)

Sorry for the inconvenience, but keep in mind we have our Valentine's Day Party in a month :)
