I will continue to update our class page with new information. Please log into my google classroom to read important information and to get additonal resources for learning with your child. Please know that future communication with you will be through email, Remind, Google Classroom, and my classpage.

We will collect the completed work upon our return.

Thank you to all that sent in classroom donations!
Dear Kindergarten Families,
Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Miss Azzolini, and I am so excited to be your child's Kindergarten teacher this school year. I can not wait to meet all my new friends and see their smiling faces. We will have such a fun time learning and growing together!
On our webpage you will read about the latest happenings in our classroom. You will find updates about classroom events and weekly curriculum and goals for learning. Please consider joining my Remind group, which will be used to inform families that our Class Page has been updated. I will also be using Remind to inform families of class events and school events. To join my Remind group, simply text @azz2019 as the message to 81010.
The only required school supply your child will need is a backpack large enough to hold a 9 x 12 folder and an extra set of clothes that is weather appropriate for all seasons. I recommend that you please send your child in with 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. Homework is in the folder every Tuesday. Please have your child complete the homework (writing to be done in pencil) and return to school. 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.
All other school supplies will be provided in school. While I suggest you have extra pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue available for use at home, please do not send your child to school with any supplies. However, we have a few items on our class donation list for this school year that is listed below.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me:
Thank you so much for your support,
