The week of May 14th each kindergartener will have the opportunity to make a blue and green tie-dyed t-shirt to wear on the last day of school. The only thing needed is a white t-shirt. (Many craft stores are having specials on these types of t-shirts or provide weekly coupons in their ads.) All of the other supplies will be provided along with the washing of the t-shirts. The t-shirts will be at school ready to wear on the last day of school, Tuesday, May 22. Please make sure to bring your t-shirt to school by Friday, May 11th with your child’s name in the collar.

April 25th we are making our clipboards for our service learning project! We will need a minimum of 4 adults to help! Tasks will include: helping the kids arrange their letters and words onto scrapbook paper to form a collage, helping the kids decoupage their collage onto the clipboard, helping set up and clean up, and helping students write a friendship note. If you are available on the 25th from 8-10:40 and would like to help please email me. Thank you so much!
We are making a special surprise for Mrs. Starbuck and her baby! Our class is making a photo collage inspired by the book , A Beauty Collected which is a particularly beautiful alphabet book of photographs of objects found in nature. I will be taking photos of the children’s hands holding beautiful objects from nature and compiling the photos into one large collage. I also have a copy of the book for the class to give Mrs. Starbuck. If you would allow your child to bring a natural object like a rock, fruit, flowers, seeds… for me to take a photograph of, that would be great. I will have extra objects here at school so no worries if you don’t get a chance. It would be good excuse to go on a walk and see what your child can find. Please send your object this week or early next week if you choose to do so.
Thank you !

We are in the middle of our penny drive to benefit the kindergarten students at Kohfeldt Elementary. Our school partnered with Kohfeldt at the beginning of the school year after that part of Texas was hit by hurricane Harvey. Kindergarten has teamed up with Kohfeldt to provide each kindergarten class a class set of clipboards which our kindergarten students will decoupage with letters, numbers, sight words and other decorations, as well as provide each kindergarten teacher with a gift card to purchase supplies for literacy and math stations. Our penny drive will fund these projects. Please help your kindergartener collect change for our drive! You are also welcome to make larger cash or check donations if you would like. Thank you for your help!

Our last class party is February 14th at 2:30 to celebrate Valentine’s Day and Spring! Your child will need a plain solid colored gift bag to decorate the morning of the 14th. We will use this bag as a “mailbox” for the children to deliver their valentine cards to their friends. About 8×10 inches is a good size-big enough to hold the cards but small enough for the kids to manage. Your child may also bring a valentine cards. Please send a card for every student. (See class list below.)The cards are totally optional but every child will need a bag to decorate. We will decorate bags and pass out cards before the party starts so please send all bags and cards with your child the morning of the 14th.
Thank you for your help!
