This will be the final Kindergarten newsletter for the school year. I feel so blessed to have had such a wonderful group of Kindergarteners with such kind, supportive families. Thank you for allowing me to get to have your babies this year. I’ve never met a group of kiddos who learn so quickly, who are always striving to be kind, and who have such awesome personalities (Mrs. Linton and I are constantly laughing at the silly things they say). I’m sad to let them go, but so glad that they will be just right next door to me next year.
Kindergarten Graduation is this Wednesday! Please arrive around 6:20-6:30 and send your kiddos to my room. Families will wait in the PLC for the students to make their grand entrance 😊 Students can dress up in nice attire (like we did for the Christmas Program). We will be singing a couple of songs, handing out awards, and then having some light refreshments after. We should be completely done by 7:15-7:30.
Just a reminder- Now that spring is here, girls many NOT wear navy pants on mass days. They need to wear their school uniform skirt or jumper.
Our specials schedule is:
Monday and Tuesday- PE (Please wear appropriate shoes.)
Friday- Library (Please return any overdue books)
Important Dates & Reminders:
*5/23 Move-up Day; the children will get a chance to go to Mrs. Boring’s room to hear all about 1st grade. Kindergarten program at 6:30 p.m.

Math: We are going to work with both addition and subtraction for the rest of the school year. We are also going to continue with telling time.
Writing: Drawing real life pictures with 3-star coloring (colors make sense, no white spaces, staying in the lines) and using labels. We are now trying to write several full sentences. We are working on sounding out words, starting sentences with capital letters, ending with a sentence stopper, and proper spacing between words.
