EVENTS: We will be having a Thanksgiving Program from 1:30-2:30 pm on Thursday, November 20th for all Kindergarten families in Mrs. Xavier's, and Mrs. Sigmon's classes. The program will begin in the Primary Center classroom at 1:30 pm on that day, and immediately following will Thanksgiving desserts for all, as well as time to celebrate together. Thank you in advance for sending in donations of paper goods, desserts and beverages that will make our day festive.
PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES: All families were send a notice regarding scheduling a conference. If you have not yet responded, or need more flexible scheduling, please contact me at your earliest convenience.
PI OPPORTUNITIES: Please be sure to attend the Buffalo P.R.I.D.E on Tuesday, November 4th at 6:00 in the VCMS gym. Parents are asked to donate paper products or desserts for our Thanksgiving Program this month. A notice will be sent home with the details, and we appreciate any help you can give our classroom.
HOMEWORK: A packet will be put in your child's binder for Monday- Thursday homework. Please have your child complete one activity each day. To encourage success in Kindergarten, please help your child to know all of the upper and lowercase letter names and the sight words on the 100 Club List. (See the Upper and lowercase letter recognition PDF practice sheet below) Oral counting of numbers 0 to 50 will be assessed at the end of the 2nd nine weeks of school. Students who have master counting to 50 may progress until they have mastered counting 0-100! Offer opportunities for your student to count objects at home, and encourage them to use an index finger to touch each object as they count. Baggie books are sent home on Mondays and must be returned each week by Thursday to participate in the this take-home book class program.
HOME-SCHOOL COMMUNICATION: The agenda planner is where you can write me a note about any changes in dismissal, share a
comment, or any question that you may want to ask me. Please make sure to let me know whether your child is going to be at car line or participate in Aftercare each day. If your child is absent, please send in a note explaining the reason for the absence for me to submit to the Main Office. Please remember to arrive to school on time. Your child loves to enter our classroom promptly at 7:35am!
