Last Week of School

Dear Families,

It is hard to believe that this is the last week of school.  This is a bittersweet time!  I have enjoyed teaching each and everyone one of your children.  This was a great class and I will truly miss them.  I also want to thank all of you for your support this year.  I could not have had such a successful year without your help.  Parent support is so crucial in Kindergarten and I was blessed to have all of you wonderful families.  I hope you have a great summer filled with relaxation, fun, and laughter!

What You Need to Know:

Please be sure to return all book bags with the leveled readers that I sent home for reading practice.  These books were due last week.  I have a few students who have not returned them.

For Thursday, please send in a reusable bag or a large handled brown paper bag and a clean rag.  We will be using the bag to bring things home from school.  We need rags to clean and wipe our desks.

There will be an end of the year parent meeting in our classroom on Tuesday, June 13 @ 10:00 a.m.  The meeting will last about an hour.  Our “End of the Year Family Picnic” will be at 12:00 p.m. We will need parent helpers to help with set up after the conclusion of our parent meeting.   Please remember that all Kindergarten families are invited and encouraged to attend with their child.  All food donations are due on Tuesday.  Non-edibles can be brought in on Monday or Tuesday.  Be sure you write your name on any items that need to be returned to you.  The weather forecast is calling for a hot day!  Please put sunscreen on your child in the morning prior to coming to school.  You may want to send sunscreen in your child’s backpack in case more needs to be applied during the afternoon.  There will be a lot of water games, so be sure your child wears a bathing suit under his/her clothing and has water/beach shoes.   Send in a towel too!  I look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday.  Please note Tuesday is a regular day for students. Parents are to return at 10:00 a.m. for the meeting.

Zoo field trip is Wednesday, June 14.  For those who are chaperoning, please bring a tote bag to carry lunches for your group of children.  All chaperones must report to the office at 8:40 a.m. to sign in.  After signing in please come to our classroom.  We will be leaving at 9:00 a.m. and returning by 3:00 p.m.  Please be sure to pack a disposable lunch for your child with his or her name on it.  No glass bottles or items that need to come home.  We will not be carrying anything back with us.  Dress for the weather as it is going to be a warm day.  Wear comfy clothes and shoes as we will be doing a lot of walking.  Please remember to put sunscreen on your child in the morning prior to coming to school.

Our last day of school is Friday at 11:45 a.m.  If your child will not be coming to school on Friday, please be sure to let me know.  I have an end of the year gift for them and I want to be sure they receive it.   Report cards will be coming home on Friday too!  Please be sure all leveled readers and book bags are returned, any unpaid lunch bills are paid, and all library books are returned prior to Friday. Otherwise, your child will not be able to receive his/her report card.

Have a great week and a wonderful summer!

Kim

Week of May 22

Dear Families,

Congratulations to all the children for doing a wonderful job presenting at the “Talking Zoo”.  Thank you to all families for coming to visit our zoo.

We had a very busy Monday.  We had 7 incoming Kindergarten students visit our classroom today.  We all went to watch the Aeolus Quartet perform in the auditorium this afternoon. Needless to say I was not able to put new reading books in your child’s book bags today.  Please send your child’s book bag tomorrow and I  will add new books.  I also will be sending home last week’s spelling test tomorrow.

Our spelling test will be Thursday since we have no school on Friday.

Spelling words: that, blu,e wa,s rob, cob, job

Enjoy the long weekend!  We have no school Friday and Monday.

Library books are due back by June 1.  Leveled readers are due back on or before June 7.

Money and permission slips for Barnyard Express are due this Thursday.

Have a great week and Memorial Day Weekend!

Updates and Reminders

Dear Families,

It is hard to believe how quickly the days are flying!  Her are some updates and reminders.

Tomorrow, May 19 , is our “Talking Zoo” presentations.  The children are excited for this fun event.  Please arrive at

2:30 p.m. Be sure to sign in at the office.  If your child will be needing assistance with costumes/make-up please be here at

2:10 p.m.  Parents will be asked to gather in the Kindergarten hallway as we parade down to the library.  Once we get to the library, we ask parents to give us a few minutes to get the children set up in their positions.  Once all is set, parents will then be invited into “Our Zoo”.

Over the next 2 weeks the incoming Kindergaten students for next year will be joining our classes for an 1 1/2 hour each day to experience part of our day.   Your children get the opportunity to practice their leadership skills by working with them and showing them what a day in kindergarten looks like.

I will be completing all the final end of the year assessments with students over the next several weeks.  I will continue to send home leveled readers for you and your child to read each week.  Please send book bags on Mondays and I will give new books for the week.  Thank you for your willingness to work with these leveled reading books at home.   All leveled readers must be returned to school on June 1.  I must turn them back in for the end of the year.

 

Have a great week!

Kim
