    Each week we will focus on a new color and color word.  During the week, we will do a few fun activities with that color.  One of our activities will be to make a color poster.  We will ask the students to bring in a picture. It can come from a magazine, printed sheet, or a hand drawn picture of things with that color. It could also be an small object that can be glued on to our poster. Any picture/object will do, but keep in mind, they will not be returned.  we will also designate a day to dress in that color.

    Welcome

      

    Welcome To Kindergarten

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Kindergarten!!  My name is Alisha Robinson and I will have the pleasure of being your child's teacher this year.  Get ready as we embark on a fun filled adventure full of learning and new experiences. I am looking forward to getting to know both you and your child.  Please feel free to email me with any question or concerns that you may have this year.  Your child will need a back pack that will hold a 9 x 12 folder.   Please make sure your child's name is on everything that comes to school.  Also, it will be very helpful if you have crayons, pencils, scissors and glue at home for homework activities.  We will have these items at school, so there is no need send these items to school. 
     

    Please  remember to send in lunch and or lunch money each day.  We will be eating in the lunchroom everyday and they do have the option to purchase a lunch or a milk if needed.  Lunch is only 30 minutes, so please keep that in mind when packing your child's lunch.  We do not have the means to heat up any items.  All food items should be ready to eat.  During the first few weeks, there will be extra hands in the cafeteria to assist the children with opening up their food/drink containers.  It would be beneficial for you to have your child start to practice opening and closing their own containers.  We will eat lunch daily from 12:15-12:55 (3rd lunch period). Please be sure to practice memorizing with your child, their student ID number, which will be used for the Computerized Payment System when purchasing any school lunch food/drink item.  Their student ID number will be listed on the portal.   

     We will also have a small snack in the afternoon daily and I will be asking parents for snack donations.  Snack items needed will be pretzels, Goldfish, boxes of dry cereal, Teddy Grahams, or  Animal crackers.  ***If your child has a food allergy, please contact me via email (arrobinson@jacksonsd.org) or have a note ready for me for orientation day. We plan on having a snack the first day, but need to know about any food allergies BEFORE we can give any student a snack.  Please feel free to send in a bottle/thermos of water (no juice please) for your child to drink while they are in the classroom. Please make sure you write your child's name on the bottles.  Remember to write your child's name on everything you send in to school.  Also, please have your child wear sneakers on gym day.  We will be going outside for recess on nice days.  In order for your child to participate in gym class and play on the playground at recess they must wear sneakers.  We are always in need of hand wipes and table wipes. Please feel free to send them in with your child. Thank you so much for all your donations of snacks and supplies to our classroom. Your generosity is truly appreciated!!

      Your child will receive a card to swipe if they are buying lunch. This will help speed up the process when paying for their lunch. It is still important to have your child memorize their student ID number. They will need to use it throughout their educational career while they are a student in our District. Their student ID number will be listed on the portal.  

    We will also have a small snack daily in the afternoon and I will be asking parents for snack donations.  Snack items needed can be pretzels, Goldfish, boxes of dry cereal, Teddy Grahams, or Animal crackers. Please do not send in anything sticky. Remember we are a Nut Free Room. Make sure there are no nuts in the snacks. ***If your child has a food allergy, please contact me via email (arrobinson@jacksonsd.org) or have your child bring in a note. If your child has a food allergy please send in a "safe" snack for them to eat.
