No prepayments until August 30th. Students must bring money per day until that point – will be giving change back to kids if they bring more than the cost of one meal.
Safety – talk about not parking at church and dismissing as a walker (when really a car rider), walk with a buddy, etc.
Discuss homework expectations briefly – read nightly (will be turning in log of “RAH” (read at home) time for a grade.) and a short language practice that will be discussed in class. Writing/journaling 3-5 times per week is encouraged as well to prepare them for writing expectations – even informal diaries or journals are good.
