What Happened This Week!

What a WONDERFUL start to Kindergarten! I truly enjoyed meeting everyone last Friday during Meet Your Teacher. I know it will be an excellent year.

This week, we learned about the rules and procedures of the classroom. We read The Kissing Hand and we learned about what we can do when we feel sad, angry, or happy! We also talked about how to make friends and how we can be a good friend to others.

Friday Folders will start next week -- we are still missing several key supplies, including the folders we will need to make the Friday folders. Please send in all supplies ASAP.

Thank you to everyone who has contacted me through email! You have helped save paper and our environment.

I cannot wait to work together as a community to help all our learners succeed!
 
What’s Coming Up:

REMEMBER: MONDAYS ARE PE DAYS! SEND YOU CHILD IN THEIR PE UNIFORM!

Next week, we will start learning about the letter M and read stories about getting along as friends. In Math, we will explore numbers 1-10. In Social Studies, we will continue to talk about why rules are important. In Science, we will start talking about Science  Safety and Science Tools.

Homework will start at the end of August.

Wish List

We need donations for morning snack! We have a very action packed morning, and the students are becoming hungry before lunch. We would really appreciate donations of pretzels, graham crackers, goldfish, or ritz crackers. Thank you! It will help us make our great mornings even better!

Please remember to pack a change of clothes in a ziplock bag for your student. You must label the ziplock bag with your student’s name! 

Please label all your child’s personal items, such as bookbags, coats, jackets, umbrellas etc. with your child’s name and (if there is space) my name so that it can be safely returned to your student. Thank you! 

 Please keep practicing with your students on how to tie their shoes, tuck in their clothes, and buckle their belts. Thank you!
