Animal facts were due today!

We are beginning our writing research unit this week. Every kindergartner has been assigned an ocean animal. Last week, I sent home a paper with the name of the animal and asked that you and your child research that animal (either online or in books) and return the paper with 5 facts about that animal. They were due today. If your child did not return the paper, please turn it in tomorrow. We will incorporate those facts into our research. Please have your child write these facts in their handwriting!

If you have any questions about where to find these facts, please let me know. Thank you!


We are going to be authors!

Dear Parents,
I am excited to announce that your child will soon be a published author! We are writing and illustrating a classroom book that will include all the students’ work. Your child is bringing home a letter with details about the project as well as an order form if you’d like to purchase a class book.

Books cost only $20.00 and are a professional-quality, hardcover book. Classroom books make great keepsakes and gifts for other family members and friends!

There are 2 easy ways to order a classroom book:
1. Return the paper order form and payment to me by 4/16/2019; OR
2. Place an order online using Class ID KM7471. Simply visit Write the Confirmation Number from your receipt on the paper order form and return to me by 4/16/2019.

This will be your only opportunity to place an order for a classroom book. Our classroom will receive one free book if all order forms are returned (even if you do not purchase). Please return the order form even if you are not purchasing.  See the order form for additional details.

The students are very excited to see their creative work published in a book! Be sure to ask your child about his or her contributions to the book. Our classroom book will become a treasured keepsake!


Morning procedures

Good afternoon parents!  

We are writing to ask for your help in supporting us to build independence in our Kindergarten students.  Please say goodbye to them outside and allow them enter the school and classroom on their own. If we are lined up in the gym, please say goodbye to your child in the gym.  If you are bringing your child to school late, please sign them in and let them walk to class on their own. We begin our school day at 8:35 a.m. Kinders are very confident with classroom procedures at this point and we want to continue building that independence in preparation for first grade.  We appreciate your help and understanding with this matter!


Thank you,

The Kindergarten Teachers
