Happy 4th week of kindergarten! We are looking forward to another fantastic week!
We would like to remind you of a few things. Please remember, your child needs to bring a healthy snack to school EVERYDAY! They also need to bring their homework folder , reading and math bags to school every day. Check your child’s folder each day and remove the papers that do not need to come back to school.
The reading and math bag contains homework items for your child. Please work with these items for 20 minutes each day. All children need to wear gym shoes to school every day. Thank you for your teamwork in helping your child with these responsibilities!
