Hello, Kindergarten Parents!
Back to School Night is TONIGHT, September 14 from 5:00-5:30 pm. We will be going over lots of important information including volunteer opportunities, birthdays, field trips, curriculum, and much more. Child care will NOT be provided. If you bring your child(ren), I respectfully request that parents are responsible for keeping them quiet during the meeting. Thank you for your cooperation. I hope to see you all there!
We had a substitute, Mrs. Gribble (aka “Miss Scribbles”), in our classroom on Tuesday because I had to be out of the building for a professional development course. The kids got an awesome report and the day went very smoothly. Mrs. Gribble will also be subbing for me this coming Monday, September 18 so that I can work with children one-on-one for our first round of required literacy assessments (DIBELS).
Volunteers - Information about volunteer opportunities will be handed out this evening. Please return the completed forms as soon as possible so that I can organize a schedule.
RED Folders are going home for the first time next week! Folders and book logs are due each Monday.
Picture Day is next Tuesday, September 19. If you would like to purchase pictures, please return the order form on or before Tuesday. I always look forward to seeing the kids look their best for picture day!
Next week we will begin our “Families” unit. Please see the letter and materials going home today about the paper family project. When your child is done with his/her paper family, please send it in so we can display them in our classroom.
September Book Orders are due tomorrow. Our class activation code for online ordering is: H4WZW . Beginning in October, I will only be accepting online orders.
Completing orders online allows you to browse kindergarten books and flyers as well as other grade levels and interest areas. It is also a time-saver for me as I do not have to enter in all the individual orders. Check your child’s Thursday folder for instructions on completing an online book order. If you do not have access to the internet to do this and wish to order a book, please contact me.
The Annual Tavelli Duathlon is next Friday, September 22! This is a very fun community event for the whole family. I hope to see you there!
Tell and Show begins next Friday! Please review the information given at Back to School Night for more information. No toys, please.
Tell and Show next Friday, Sept. 22: Kellen, Hank, Frankie
