Lunch

Lunch is a time for socialization as well as for developing healthy eating habits and self-help skills. Chef Raquel from A Pinch of Salt, creates a homemade, healthy lunch for all students everyday. All children eat in our family-style dining room with the teachers.

Backpack

All children should bring a backpack to school. The backpack can be used to hold a lunchbox as well as hats and mittens, if necessary. Parents should check their child’s backpack every afternoon; this is where schoolwork and teacher communications will be sent home.

Nap

All PreK and Kindergarten students take advantage of a daily rest time. AJLA will provide PreK students with a nap cot, with a clean, fitted sheet and a quilt. On the first day of school, please bring a pillow and comfort item that your child can keep with him or her throughout the year. Kindergarten students have mats for rest.

Please label all items with your child’s name. Children should not bring personal property, such as toys, to school.
