*Late start Wednesday: Bell rings at 9:35am.
*Homework packet: Lesson 16 homework assignment was due yesterday. In order to keep your homework packets one week behind instruction, this week your child will receive two new games to add to their homework “Game Binders” and a membership to “Zern.org” a game website linked to our kindergarten curriculum with fun games will be sent home tomorrow. Look in your child’s folder for the letter and login information stapled to it 🙂 Enjoy, and please let me know if you need any help setting your child up.
*Apple Orchard: We are all set! Looking forward to the field trip this week! Remember to send your child with a warm outfit and the proper coat and shoes to stay warm and dry all day! In addition, a bag lunch that can easily be thrown away after eating. No money please we will not be visiting the orchard store.
*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 popcorn sales will be back on!

*This week in math I will be returning to regular instruction and continuing with lesson 17. Please have your child play the games from their homework game binder each night to review all skills and log onto zern.org to register themselves on the site. This is an additional way to fulfill homework skill practice a night and as your child completes assignments and games it will naturally move them up! Have fun.
*This week the kindergarten teachers will be setting up a “sign up genius” for our Halloween party which will take place on Wednesday October 31st, 2018. Please take a minute to view the supplies needed for the party and sign up to donate items if that is possible for your family. NO PRESSURE 🙂 Parents are welcome join us for the party and we will also need parents to help run stations and manage crowd control lol! The class and I thank you in advance for your generosity and assistance to make our Halloween at school successful and most importantly FUN!
*Scholastic book orders will be due on Friday. If you want a book from the catalog, please order online using code QNHLC or the order form and money in an envelope with your child’s name.
