What Happened This Week!

GRADUATION is FINALLY HERE! Please make sure to read all the instructions in your child's graduation pack!

1. PLEASE REMEMBER: THE WRISTBAND GOES ON YOUR wrist and NOT your child's. The wristband helps us return your child to you quickly after the graduation. Parents or guardians without wristbands will have to wait until after all the other students have been checked out and go to the front with their ID. Wristbands are not tickets. Each child should have received 5 tickets. There are no more extra tickets.

2. STUDENTS DO NOT NEED TO BRING BOOKBAGS, AGENDAS, or ANY graduation items except their cap and gown. PLEASE WRITE YOUR CHILDS NAME ON THE CAP.

3. Students need to come ALREADY dressed in their cap and gown. Girls need to have their hair pinned neatly under the cap.

4. Doors open at 8:40. Please go to the seats assigned to your child's name! The ceremony will begin promptly at 9:00 am. There is no school after the ceremony for Kindergarten.

5. The ceremony marks the end of Kindergarten and the start of summer break! There will be no school for KINDERGARTEN on Tuesday or Wednesday. THERE IS SCHOOL FOR ALL THE OTHER GRADES.

6. HAVE FUN! WE DID IT! 

Thank you to all the volunteers for field day! Also, thank you to all the families who sent in supplies for our class party! This includes the families of Iremide, Jean, Roberto and Chelsea! Everyone loved the treats and it was an awesome way to end the year.

Thank you all for helping me make this one of the best years of Kindergarten. I really appreciate everyone's help! I know that as  our students go into first grade, they are truly ready to continue their wonderful progress.  

What’s Coming Up:

HAPPY SUMMER!!!!! SEE YOU IN THE FALL!
Students received a science textbook which they can use to keep their reading and thinking skills sharp over the summer break. Make sure you keep reviewing all the sight words over the break.

Students who read at least 3 books a week and keep a book log throughout the summer will receive a SPECIAL treat from me when they come back and give me the book log when the school begins! Just make sure to write down the name of the story, the author, and what you liked best!
