Week of 10-7-19
I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed this beautiful weather! I want to THANK you all for helping us make our first field trip a HUGE success! Thank you to Aleah’s, Henry’s, Erina’s, Armani’s, Ava’s and Evelyn’s moms for chaperoning!!! And thank you to all the parents that joined us and helped the groups. We are a great team The kids and I had a blast and are so grateful for everything. They were SUCH troopers with the weather and rain. I am so proud of how positive and awesome they were. Here is what is cooking this week in kindergarten. If there are any changes and additional information I will send it out asap.
Important Dates: Friday October 11th, 2019 our students will have a half day dismissal. I will bring the students out to our line at 11:45 am. Students will not need to pack a lunch, but as always we will have a morning snack so feel free to send in one!
Library tomorrow: Don’t forget to pack your child’s library book tonight for tomorrow’s check-out.
Homework: Homework packets were collected today and the next 5 lessons will be sent home In addition, your child will receive a new homework game to add to their binder! Thank you again for all your ongoing support with the packets. Each week when your child returns them they will get a check mark. If they reach four in the month they will receive a penguin point!
- make sure name is written on the homework packet as well. It’s a good way to help your child practice his/her name too! I received a couple packets with no name :-/
Popcorn: Due to the half day there will be no popcorn this week!
