Dear Head Start families, 

I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to our Head Start classroom at Washington Elementary! My name is Mrs. Benak and I will be your child’s teacher this year. This is my 7th year teaching Head Start! Teaching young children is my passion! 

Our official school day is from 8:50am to 4:05pm. An adult must walk your child to the classroom and sign the child in/out each day. 

Your child will receive breakfast, lunch, and snack each day at school. Outside food/drinks are not permitted. Your child may bring a water bottle. 

Your child will need to bring 3 items to school. 

1. Blanket for nap time (I will send them home every Friday to be washed) 

2. Backpack 

3. Extra change of clothes to keep in their cubby (underwear, socks, shirt, shorts)
