Hi Parents!

 

Homework will be in binders tonight.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you for making sure that your child turned in the homework from last week!

 

Please mark your calendars for Kindergarten’s End of the Year Awards/Celebration.  This will begin at 1:30 on Wed., May 22nd.  It should last until approximately 2-2:15. Kiddos can go home with parents/family after.  Even though this is their “graduation,” the students are expected to come to school until the last day, Wed. May 29th.  We are going to have a lot of fun that last week, and I don’t want them to miss out!

 

We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our classroom caterpillars.  Over the last few weeks of school, we will watch the metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly.  We will release the butterflies in the last few days of school.  I am so excited for this!  The students will love it too!

 

Please talk to your child about classroom behaviors/expectations for the last few weeks of school.  Summer fever is upon us!  We have so many fun things coming up, but these special things are earned.  If we are experiencing behavior issues, a student can miss the special things coming up.

 

I will begin planning our last Mass of the school year soon.  If your child is participating in this Mass, you will receive a letter in about a week with details on what he/she is doing.

 

As summer break is quickly approaching, I want to make sure our kids are not experiencing the “summer slide.”  It is common for students to lose some of the things they learned throughout the school year if they don’t continue to read and do school work over the summer.  I will send home an optional summer packet for students to work on throughout the summer.  However, if you have something specific you would like for me to get for your child to practice on over the summer, let me know!  The most important thing they can do is READ, READ, READ!

 

THANK YOU for working with your child on sight words!  I have a few more to test, but I am SO PROUD of what I have seen so far!!!

 

Field day is coming up!  This is a super fun (but tiring) day for the kiddos.  We will be outside most of the day.  The students will be with their “families” this day, so most of the Kindergartners will be with a different teacher.  More info to come on this, but if you would like to volunteer to help, please see the link below.  Thank you!

*5/18 Annual Dinner Auction @ Don & Dona’s at the Pavilion 6-11 p.m.  Please be sure your child is selling their raffle tickets.  This is our biggest school fundraiser.  You do NOT have to be present to win if you purchase raffle tickets.  If our class sells the most the children will earn an ice cream party!
