Snack 

Snack: We will have snack time each day and your child is responsible to bring in their own snack and water bottle if they choose. You are more than welcome to send in an extra snack that I can keep for students who forget.  If your child forgets his/her snack they have the option of purchasing a snack for .75 cents.  They can continue to bring in their own snack, this is just an extra option for them.
