How will I know what my child is doing daily at JellyBean Island?
In all age groups, classroom teachers will provide a daily report to let you know what they did that day, what they had for lunch and if they ate and friends they played with that day. Also, note that there will be a specific note if there is an upcoming field trip or special guest speaker or special day coming up. Be sure to read this sheet daily, as it can spark conversation on the trip home.
