We are beginning our new Math Module 3 this week. There will be new homework next Monday as we begin this new module on measurement and length.
Picture retake day is tomorrow, Tuesday, December 3rd.
We are in desperate need of non-perishable snack items. I still have a lot of children not bringing their own snacks everyday. This limits our sources dramatically. I am not supposed to provide snack for your child, however with the generosity of some families I am able to give snack to those who forget. The problem is, more and more students are forgetting each day and that is diminishing our supplies quickly. Please send in a healthy snack each day with your child. If you are able to donate a supply of non-perishable snack supplies it is much appreciated!

Parents there was a bus safety note that went home yesterday, September 24th. Please sign and turn it in as soon as possible. I encourage you to review bus safety rules with your child. You have to sign this even if they do not ride the bus because we use the bus for school field trips. Thank you
Wednesday, September 25th is Late Start. School begins at 9:35 a.m.
Friday, September 27th there is NO SCHOOL for Kindergarten ONLY! Teachers have a meeting that day.
This week we implemented the PBIS system in the classroom. This stands for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports. The children having been learning the three most important aspects of the PBIS system, which are, Respect, Responsibility and Safety. We use a color chart system in the classroom Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red. The day starts on green and the idea is to stay there. If I catch extra positive behaviors the children can move up to Blue. Yellow is a second warning for the day. Orange is the third warning with a note home (Think Sheet), sometimes there is a call from the teacher, depending on the situation. Red is a visit to the office with a phone call home from the teacher and or administrator.
This week I had to send my first think sheets home and make a couple of phone calls home. I don’t want this to be a division between me and your child. I want us to work together as a team to have your child come to school with a positive ready to learn attitude. Kindergarten is a tough because your child is transitioning from play to structure. I try to fit in as many brain breaks and play breaks as I am allowed to to help them stay healthy and positive, but they also need to know when it is time to learn it is time to stop, breathe and listen. Kindergarten is a lot different from when we were little, but with your help we can make learning fun and positive. Rules are going to follow us through life and this is the time your child will learn that with broken rules there are consequences. I am on your child’s side as an advocate for helping them learn and grow to become a productive, respectable adult one day. I tell them every day…you are my kiddos at school until you leave and grow and become adults one day! They will always be my kids as they are yours and we can work together to help them be positive learners and human beings.
