Breakfast... "Brain Food" Breakfast is offered before school begins each day. *Prices are listed in the handbook or the cafe' portion of the Hobart website. Lunch
At 11:00 our class goes to lunch. After lunch, the students go outside for recess (weather permitting). It takes a few days to settle into the lunchtime routine; however, the students do quite well once they get the hang of it. Your child may bring a "cold" lunch or may buy a "hot" lunch.
Please remember to place lunch money in an envelope labeled with your child's first and last name as well as child's teacher. It is very helpful to put the labeled envelope in your child's daily communication folder, not in his pocket or by itself in the backpack. Lunch money is sent to the cafe' first thing in the morning to be deposited into your child's account. As your child purchases lunches, the money is deducted from the account, just like you might use a debit card.
We work hard and the children get hungry! Our snack break is in the afternoon. Snacks should be healthy; a piece of fruit or a small bag of cereal, pretzels, or crackers - just enough to recharge and get through the remainder of the day. Some favorites include: fruit, teddy Grahams, cheese popcorn, fruit loops, animal crackers, goldfish crackers, etc. Water
Water is GREAT for our brains! Your child may have water in the classroom at all times. He/she may leave a bottle of water on his/her desk area. It is a good idea to keep it in an insulated cup or put a clean sock around it to keep the area dry. Your child can take it home nightly to be washed and re-filled for the next day. Please save juice boxes for lunch time as the cafe' has a washable floor. Our classroom has carpet and in kindergarten spills happen! :)
