When does my child need to wear PE shoes?

We have PE on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

What is the best way to get a hold of Mrs. Peters?

The absolute best way to get a hold of me is by emailing me at tpeters@usd288.org.  You may also call before or after school at 785-869-3355, ext. 319.  If you leave a message, I will get back to you as soon as I can.  Also, feel free to stop in before or after school.  If you would like a conference in between regularly scheduled conferences, please feel free to set up an appointment with me.

When does the school marathon start? Will my child have to run the whole mile?

There is a kick off for the marathon on September 6, and the marathon starts September 9.  We will run Monday-Thursday and have a make-up day on Friday.  You child does not have to run the whole mile!  He/she may walk, run, or do both.

Do you offer extra credit?

The only extra credit offered is by doing extra credit (EC) labs, which are given before each test in my classes.  Students have the opportunity to earn up to 5 extra credit points for each EC lab given.  EC labs are due the day the test is taken.  No other extra credit will be offered.  For more details, there is a section discussing this under the Classroom Rules and Procedures tab.

When can I bring birthday treats?

You are welcome to join us for your child's birthday party.  However, if you're unable to make it and would like to send treats, you can either bring them by the office or send them with your child.  We will celebrate at approximately 2:45.  However, when the school marathon is happening, it will be celebrated at a different time.  Feel free to ask me if you'd like an exact time-times will vary!

Why does my child need to have his/her planner signed each day?

By signing your child's planner, I know that you are current with what is being done in the classroom.  Also, many times you will find grades, important announcement, or notes from me stapled or written in the planner that need immediate attention.

At what time does my child switch classes?

The students will be in Mrs. Cutburth's class from 12:15 to 2:15 each day.
