Mrs. Boring’s Class Friday, May 1, 2015
VIP Day was a very SPECIAL DAY for everyone! The children had a chance to “show off” our classroom, the incubator, the chicks, their seeds and some of their school work. The children were also given the opportunity to get their picture taken, celebrate at mass and eat lunch with their special visitors. They did a GREAT job singing their songs during the program. They even surprised our guests when they pulled out their kazoos for one of their songs. _ SMILES filled the room for sure! It was very nice getting to meet so many of my students’ grandparents and SPECIAL VIP’S last Friday. I hope all of our visitors enjoyed their day as much as we did! It was a PLEASURE meeting everyone and seeing some familiar faces again!
The Kindergarten Program will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 20th in the PLC. The children need to meet Mrs. Salazar and me in our classroom at 6:10 p.m. The children may dress up or may dress casual. However, I would like to request that they do not wear jeans or “play clothes.” The children will be performing a program that will last about 30-40 minutes. We will be using a few props; some of these props will be hats. If the girls plan on wearing ponytails or pigtails, I would like to ask you to please make sure they aren’t up real high because this makes it difficult for them to put the hats on easily. Thin clips may be easier as far as that goes. Following the program the children will receive their certificates and then there will be a small reception.
POEMS: Please be sure your child is practicing their poem that they will be reciting for the Kindergarten program . These came home in last week’s Friday folders. A few of the children have told me they have not started practicing yet. If you have misplaced your child’s poem, please let me know ASAP so that I can send home another copy. The children are to be working on these 2-3 times a week at home. We will begin practicing for the program here at school the second week of May so hopefully all of the children will have them memorized by then. Thanks for your help! I still can’t believe that we only have 3 weeks of school left. I know I’ve already said it, but where has this year gone? WOW!
**Our 8th grade buddies will be graduating (in church) from St. Rose on Thursday, May 21st at 7:00 p.m. If you are able to come to their graduation mass, I’m sure they would love to see you. It’s always nice for the “little ones” to see what they have to look forward to as they continue to learn and grow here at St. Rose.**
