Upcoming Events

Monday, Sept. 24—Fluoride

Thursday, Sept. 27—Library, PE, Music

Friday, Sept. 28—Computers  

Oct. 1-5—SEP Week  (See note below)

Weekly Theme:


Please reinforce having your child write his/her name the “kindergarten way”—beginning with a capital and all the rest  of the letters written in lower case.  THANK YOU!

Your child’s DIBELS (an assessment of early literacy skills) scores will come home in his/her homework folder on Monday.  If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail or call me.   I would be happy to discuss them in further detail with you.

Also coming home in your child’s homework folder is a PTA school shirt order form. The cost is $8.00 and the students are encouraged to wear them on Fridays to promote school spirit.

The Take-Home Library (provided through the literacy center) aide works Mondays through Thursdays which means that your child does not bring home a book on Fridays.  I am trying to find a volunteer to come in on Fridays so that the students are able to bring a book home every day.  If you would be willing to volunteer, please let me know.  The reading aide will train you how to do this. If you can devote about 20 minutes on Fridays for this, it would be greatly appreciated!

During SEP Week (Oct. 1st-5th), we will not be having individual appointments for kindergarten because of our assessments in August.  However, if you have concerns and you want to meet with me, I would love to do that.  Please just let me know.  Remember that the students will be dismissed early, allowing me to more effectively plan and prepare our curriculum to meet the needs of your children.  AM students will meet from 8:50-10:50 and PM students will meet from 12:30-2:30 even on Wednesday for that week.

Again, thank you for your support!  Enjoy your week!!
