Kindergarten Celebration MOVED to TOMORROW!!!

Dear Parents,

 

Due to the inclement weather that is forecasted for Thursday afternoon, we have decided to move the Kindergarten and Young Fives end of year celebration to Wednesday morning from 9:15-11:00 am.  We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you, but we want the kids to enjoy all the outdoor activities on their  special day! Parents are still welcome to join us for the celebration!

 

Be sure to wear to Kindergarten T-shirts, tennis shoes and sunscreen!  

End of the Year Celebration

The end of the school year is almost upon us and to celebrate we will be having a Kindergarten and Young 5’s Celebration! Our celebration will be held at school on June 13th from 1:30 – 3:15 pm. We are looking forward to a fun-filled afternoon, but we wanted to give you some important information first.

 

Since all of the Kindergarten classes and Young 5’s will be outside together, each class should wear their Y5 or Kindergarten T-shirt. If your child does not have a class shirt, please wear a shirt of similar color.

 

We will be providing your child with a fun snack and water, but we are asking that you please send your child in with sunscreen already on and a hat/sunglasses, if needed. In order for this day to be successful, we will need your help! You may be asked to help run a game, pass out popsicles, or the monitor bounce house. So please come ready to have fun and lend a helping hand!  Please be aware that NO SIBLINGS will be allowed at this event. NO EXCEPTIONS. Remember you must sign in at the office and receive a “visitor” sticker.

 

Your child will not need to bring a backpack to school with them on this day. All of your child’s belongings will be sent home with them on June 12th.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you so much for all of your help and support.  We look forward to a great celebration for a wonderful year!

 

News from the Jungle

Only 4 more weeks of school! Which is only 15 more days with all the days off that are upcoming.

As stated last week, we have completed all of our spelling tests! This means you may keep the spelling book. It does not need to be returned to school.

Today was the last day for homework as well as for book pouches! Today was also the last day for library check-out. Make sure to return any library books next week in order to avoid fines.

Just as a reminder – the weather is starting to warm up and we do NOT have air conditioning. Please keep this in mind while your child is choosing and outfit each day for school. It has already been warming up inside the building. Hopefully we will get lucky and it won’t get too hot before school let’s out for summer.

Reading and Writing: We continue practicing daily 5 routines and procedures while working on increasing our reading and writing skills. During this portion of the day, I have been working one-on-one with students to complete testing.

Math: The children are trying to focus more on what an equation is asking (whether addition or subtraction). The children are also practicing story problems and learning to look for keywords to understand if they should be adding or subtracting.

Science: We continue to learn about ocean animals and how they depend on their habitats! This will be our focus for the rest of the year. As soon as I complete all of our testing, I am hoping to do some ocean crafts with the children.

Social Studies: We continue discussing democracy! We will take more polls and participate in voting on different topics to help the children understand the process. The children love voting and counting the results.

Clean Up Parade at 2:00pm

Due to the wet conditions we will be making a few changes to our clean up parade. We are going to have the assembly portion first instead of at the end. After the assembly we will line up and begin our walk around the neighborhood around 2:00pm, weather permitting. We will come out the back parking lot and then continue walking over to Nightingale. All are welcome to join us for our walk! Plan to join up with us along the way either on Coburn or along Nightingale. We look forward to seeing you later!

May PBIS – Game Day!

Families,

 

The end of the month is here, and that means it is time for our final PBIS celebration of the year! On Friday, May 31st, if your child has maintained positive behavior for the entire month, they will participate in Game Day! Students can bring in games/cards/puzzles from home to play at school with their friends. Please label everything that is brought in so nothing is misplaced. This is a super fun event and a great way to recognize the positive behavior throughout our school.

 

Thanks for your continued support,

Haigh’s PBIS Committee

Agenda for the Week

Reading and Writing: We continue working on using all of the skills we have learned to help us to become better readers and writers. Please practice sight words with your children at home. Your child should also be practicing writing by coming up with a sentence and writing down the sounds they hear in each word. Remind them to use spaces between their words.

Math: We have been working with a rekenrek and counting by 10’s. We have focused on counting on from any given number and have been practicing writing our numbers 0 – 100.

Science: We continue to learn about ocean animals and how they depend on their habitats! This week we learned more about ocean zones and the animals which live in each zone. We will continue to focus on ocean animals for the rest of the year!

Social Studies: We continue discussing democracy! We took a poll in class and casted votes on our favorite snack. Then we graphed our results. We did all of this after we came to an “informed” opinion about each snack to determine which one is the best.
