Week of 10-1-18
I hope this message finds you enjoying this lovely day! Here is what you need to know for this week in kindergarten. If there are any changes to be made or additional information added, I’ll add them as the week progresses. Have a wonderful week!
*Homework packet #2 was due today (the roll and cover game is yours to keep though) and your child will be bringing home packet #3 in their homework folder tomorrow! I have had such positive feedback from the students about feeling confident with the assignments and that the games have been really fun 🙂 Way to go boys and girls! I am so proud of you!!!
*Permission Slips and money for the Apple Orchard field trip were due today too! If you still need to turn in the permission slip or still need to send in the $10 please do so ASAP. All money must be sent to the office to pay for the trip. We will be putting in the parents name in to a bowl this week. I will post the 6 chaperones pulled from the bowl on the blog as well as send home a paper letter. If you receive this chaperone letter, please send in your $10.00 the next school day in an envelope with your name on it marked Apple Orchard Chaperone $ Thank you ALL once again for volunteering your time to help us make this a special day.
*Conferences are quickly approaching! Please make sure you have signed up for one spot on one of the days provided. I will assign any family who has not yet signed up to make sure we meet 🙂
*Popcorn fundraiser sales are almost every Friday so bring those quarters (no limit per child) first thing at 8:35 am. This Friday kdg will be back at school and will resume participating in popcorn sales
*Library check out: Your child will visit the library again on Tuesday afternoon and bring home a new book. Please make sure that your child’s book is in their backpack Monday night ready to be returned this next morning. Any lost or damaged books front he DuVall library will need to be replace by the individual child’s family. Thank you for helping your child become a responsible penguin!
*Reading Packs: Last week I began sending home “reading packs”. We will discuss these reading packs at the kdg meeting on Tuesday morning. At first, your child will just have language arts letters and/or sight words in them. We will get to the books in the future. Thank you for sending them back every day and spending about 10-15 minutes a night on the letters/words you find in there. This will help your child SO much reviewing their personal bags each night!
*Tomorrow Parent Meeting: tomorrow morning at 8:45am the kindergarten teachers, the kdg ECS and Mr. Attee will be holding an informational meeting about Language Arts in the library. If you are able to come please sign in at the office and receive a visitors pass before coming down to the library. I look forward to seeing you there, however do not stress about sending both parents! One is great if you’re able to make it. 🙂
