The Gingerbread project is due on December 11th.
We are having a Winter Wonderland Extravaganza to celebrate the holidays. I am asking for a $10 donation for a special snack, incentives, and other treats for the class. Additionally, each student will be participating in a book exchange! Please send in the funds by December 12th if possible. Your help is greatly appreciated!
Kindergarten is planning a field trip soon! Remember that if your child has 3 or more tardies he or she will not be able to attend the field trip. Please be sure that your child is in school on time. School begins promptly at 8:20 am.
Friday, December 13th is dress down day. Your child may dress down for $2.00
- Please be sure to log on to your child's account to view daily updates on behavior.
- We have started a new marking period this week and we are hoping to start planning some field trips. Three tardies in a single marking period will result in a loss of privledges to attend field trips. Please remember that school begins promptly at 8:20 am and students that come in after that time cause a disturbance to the class and miss important instruction time.
- Please study the vocabulary words with your child. Vocabulary tests occur every Friday.
Our curriculum will begin to speed up this week. We are focusing on one word and letter sound PER WEEK instead of every 2 weeks. Please continue to work with your child our weekly skills.
