Happy Spring! Today, the students in our class took the reading portion of DEA. I was so proud! They all worked through the test and tried their absolute best. We can't ask for anything else! Next Monday, April 27th, the math portion will be administered. Please be sure your child has a good nights sleep and a healthy breakfast.
End-of-the-Year Program: Our class celebration will be on Thursday, May 21st at 11:00 am. The students will perform a few songs, get awards earned, and enjoy a social snack time together. We look forward to seeing you there!
15 Year Celebration Shirts: In preparation for our 15 Year Celebration, we have a commemorative T-Shirt available for sale! The order form has been sent to you via email, so if you have not received it and need an order form, please let me know. If you'd like to place an order, please send in the order form & payment in your child's folder in a sealed envelope labeled "T Shirt Payment". Please send in all orders by April 21st.
Spring Parent Teacher Conferences: It is time for our spring parent/teacher conferences! Forms have been sent home so you can choose a day and time that is best to meet. Once I schedule our conference, I will send home a small note stapled in your child's folder. I look forward to meeting with you all to tell you about all of the wonderful progress your child has made. :)
PI: 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!
HOMEWORK: A packet will typically 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 memorize the sight words on the 100 Club List.
Oral counting of numbers 0 to 100 will be assessed at the end of the 4th nine weeks of school. Practice counting by tens and fives is helpful to develop number sense. 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.
PLANNERS: The agenda planner is also where you can write me a note about any changes with 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.
ATTENDANCE: Please remember also to arrive to school on time. Your child loves to enter our classroom promptly at 7:35am with all their other classmates! If your child is absent, please be sure to send in an excuse note when they return to school.
