Welcome to Kindergarten!
The children all had a wonderful first full week of school. They are all learning the classroom routine and class rules. Thank you for visiting our Class Page and be sure to read our class page at the beginning of each week. Each week our Class Page will be filled with information about classroom events,school events and weekly curriculm. If you haven't already done so, please consider joining my Remind group, which will be used to inform families that our Class Page has been updated. I'll also be using Remind to inform families of any 'last minute' happenings or changes to events. To join my Remind group, simply text @62bh2e to 81010.
Please be aware that the only required school supply that you child will need for school will be a backpack.Please make sure that your child's backpack is large enough to hold a standard folder and possible lunch box. I will be providing your child with all the other school supplies needed for the classroom.However, your child will need a few pencils, crayons, glue stick and scissors for home to use when completing homework. To keep your child comfortable in the classroom during the year I recommend sending in the following items: a small water bottle filled with water that is labeled with your child's name and a light weight jacket or sweater to keep in their cubby.
The children all received a Red Elms Folder that was supplied by our PTN. I ask that this folder be returned to school daily and be used for communication between school and home. Homework will begin in October every Tuesday. Homework is intended to be a renforcement of classroom learning. In addition to assigned Homework, reading with your child 15-20 minutes each and every night is highly recommended! "Book Bags" (as I will discuss at Back-to-School Night) will come home with your child at a later date.
This year our lunch will be early in the day and therefore we will be having a small snack in the afternoon. Our snack time will be a working snack time therefore we will be eating snacks that are easy to eat while working. I am asking for parent donations of large containers of pretzels, goldfish crackers and animal crackers. To make it easy during our snack time I am asking that the children not bring in their own individual snack. We will use our donations of snacks during snack time.
Thank you for your cooperation and support.
