Where did this year go? I cannot believe I am writing my last newsletter for the school year. It seems like just yesterday you and your children were coming in to “check out” our Kindergarten room. I cannot THANK ALL OF YOU enough for all you have done to help this to be a SUCCESSFUL year! I know I don’t have to tell you this, but you should be VERY PROUD of your children. What a GREAT group of children I have been BLESSED with again this year. They have worked so hard and have grown so much. They deserve a BIG PAT ON THE BACK! I am going to miss them, but I know they’ll do GREAT in 1st grade. They promised me they’d come back to visit (even if they are moving to a new school). I am looking forward to watching them continue to grow and learn over the next eight years here at St. Rose School. CONGRATULATIONS ON A JOB WELL DONE!
MOVE UP DAY
The children will have a chance to go to Mrs. Adams classroom next Tuesday morning to meet her. They will get a brief overview of what 1st grade will be like here at St. Rose. They are really excited and can’t wait to see how their old pre-school room (for many of them) has been transformed into a 1st grade room this year! Be sure to ask them about it next week!

*PLAY, PLAY, PLAY (don’t forget your safety rules).

*Visit the library for books & fun activities! Join the summer reading program!

*PLAY, PLAY, PLAY some more (board games, card games as well as dice games are GREAT for following directions, listening skills, problem solving, counting, taking turns etc.)
*Review address, phone # & DOB. This is something we often forget to review with our children. Be able to tie those shoes for 1st grade too!
*And most importantly, don’t forget my FAVORITE RECIPE (see below). I can’t STRESS enough how reading (being read to counts) EVERY DAY makes such a DIFFERENCE!
**If you are looking for specific ways to help your child in particular areas, please let me know and I can give you some suggestions for your child on an individual basis**.
MRS. BORING’S FAVORITE RECIPE:
RECIPE FOR LITERACY

1 book of colorful pictures and/or a good story
1 accommodating parental lap, complete with owner who enjoys the book and shows it in his face, voice, and whole self.
These are to be combined and taken every evening with no interruptions allowed.
