Dear Kindergarten Families,

 We've been busy in room 431!  

Fieldtrip:  We have planned our next field trip and we are very excited to be going to The Orlando Repertory Theatre on Monday, April 6th.  This is the first day we return back to school from Spring Break.  Please look for an email from me over Spring Break as a reminder. 

PI:  As the year winds down, it's important to check your Parent Involvement time to make sure you're on track to meet your goal.  All PI time is required to be completed by the last day of school.  If you have any questions about PI time or need ideas for opportunities to earn time, please let me know.  Thanks!

Spring Pictures:  Bring your smiles to school on Monday! Pictures are taking place on Monday, Mar. 16th.  Students are not required to wear a uniform.  Spring attire is allowed, however students must bring tennis shoes for PE and recess.  Any student who gets their picture taken will receive a package of pictures once they have been developed.  Parents may purchase one sheet or all sheets in the package.  Please return any photos you do not wish to purchase. 

Egg Hunt:  It is that time of year…we can find new life everywhere.  We will be having an Egg Hunt on Friday, March 27th. We are requesting that each student send in one dozen plastic, treat- filled eggs.  Some suggestions for filling the eggs:  stickers, tattoos, erasers, pennies, plastic figurines, candy, (no chocolate candy due to the hot Florida sun!).  Some eggs stay closed better than others, so if your eggs open easily, please tape them shut. We will need a few parents to help hide the eggs. If you are interested in helping, please let us know.  The children will be collecting the eggs in their own basket from home.  Please have your child bring their baskets and the 1 dozen treat-filled eggs on Wed., March 25th, so that we can make sure everyone has them!  

Rainbow Reading Challenge:  Your boys and girls are doing an amazing job with their rainbow reading challenge.  Students who have read the entire rainbow will receive a "Pot of Gold" Challenge words list.  Students who read the challenge words list will receive their name on a pot of gold to display in the classroom.  Happy Reading!

 Accelerated Reader:  When your child brings home a book from the library, please read the book at least 3 times.  Ask your child questions about what you read together.  If you feel as though your child is ready to take an AR quiz on the book, please write a note in your child's agenda planner with the complete title and author or the quiz number.  We will give your child the test in school and let you know how your student scored.  Remember, Kindergarten's goal is 15 points and 80% comprehension.  If you'd like to find out if books you have at home have a quiz for them, please log onto and look the book up.  You can test on those books, too!  We will also be testing on books read in class.  :) :)   Happy Reading!  

Box Tops for Education:  Did you know that for every Box Top you donate our school earns .10?  So, please clip your Box Tops and send them in with your student!  We greatly appreciate your consideration. :)

Thank you for all that you do to ensure your child's success!!!  I look forward to another wonderful week in room 431!
