Wednesday is Library Day!

Our class will visit the school ¬†library each Wednesday. Beginning next week, your child will bring home a new book each Wednesday which should be returned to school the by the following Wednesday. The children must return the book they checked out before they can check out a new one. If a child forgets their book, they may still pick out a book and put in on the “save shelf”. They can bring their overdue book the next day and check out the book they saved.

Half Marathon Celebration

Here in kindergarten, we believe in fresh air and exercise. Moving our bodies is a worthy goal in itself but it is also an important refresher for our minds and our spirits. Each morning, weather permitting we head outside for a few quick laps around the blacktop. The kids can walk or run as they choose. Over the course of the school year the kids completed a half marathon. Here are a few pictures of our celebration. We passed out metals and celebrated the kids’ hard work!

Reminders

Monthly Learning Updates
Your monthly update on literacy will be coming home this Friday. Overall the class is showing growth with letter sounds! Most students have mastered their letter sounds so next month I will send home information about your child’s progress with sight words. If your child is struggling with identifying letter sounds I will continue to send those updates home.

Celebration of the Arts
Please join us this Friday, March 14, from 6:30-8:30 for our Celebration of the Arts. There will be art activities for your child to create as well as performances and auction items. Your child’s artwork will also be on display in the hallway.

Spring Party- February 13th

Our Spring party is February 13th from 2:30-3. Feel free to come celebrate with us! Our party will be focused on spring but I know many children and parents look forward to making and exchanging valentine cards. Please feel free to make valentine cards with your child if you wish. It is not required in any way. The children will have an opportunity to pass out their cards earlier in the day on the 13th. If you choose to do cards, please include a card for each child and send the cards on February 13th. I will send home a list of names this Friday. Have fun!
