Hi Parents!


Please see binders for homework.  This week we will have a Math worksheet due back on Thursday and a book to read every night.  The book does not need to be returned.  Please also practice April sight words every night.  I will begin testing this week for these words.


Please have a talk with your child about making our last weeks of Kindergarten count.  Today we needed several reminders about our basic rules that we have been talking about since day one (raising hands for permission to talk, leave seat, etc.).  If you receive a letter/email about your child’s classroom behavior, PLEASE talk to your child at home about this.  Today we discussed that though our brains may be ready for 1st grade, we also need to ACT like first graders.  Thank you for your help with this.


I look forward to seeing our special visitors on VIP Day. Make sure you have turned in the forms for this day!  If your child is NOT having a VIP come, please email me and let me know.  Thank you!


Students must wear Mass Uniform on Friday for VIP Day.  We will be going to Mass this day.  In addition, all students are also asked to bring a fresh flower to school. 



Below is a preview of some of the things we’ll be doing this week and what we have been working on:


We are going to finish up our Space theme.  The students are loving this!  Hopefully they are sharing with you at home what we have been learning.


Place Value and Addition in our Go Math books.
