Hello Amazing Kinder Parents,

As we begin our first week in March here are a few reminders.

  1.  Attention All Parents…  we are in need of your help.  We have sent home 2 paper order forms for our Kinder T Shirts- but still do not have 100% from all of our classes.  It has been very hard to get these forms returned- and that is why we need your help.    We would love to have every kiddo with our special Kinder T-Shirt that has our class names on the back and our grade level on the front.  We love to wear these shirts to our field trips and other special days at school.   We are one of the few grade levels that do this special T-Shirt for our kiddos.   Please take a moment to fill out the order form and return it ASAP.  Once we go out on Spring Break we will place the order and will not be able to order after that point.-  No Exceptions.    If you are in need of another order form please let us know.

2.  In Honor of Dr. Seuss and his Birthday- March 2nd we will be celebrating  his birthday this week by reading some of our favorite Dr. Seuss books in class.  Below is a link to a fun Dr. Seuss read a loud…  The Butter Battle Book..

Hello Amazing Kinder Parents,

As we begin our week here are a few reminders…

1.  Tomorrow your kiddos will bring home a white envelope for our new fundraiser from Mixed Bags.  This is a great way for us to raise money for our school to buy technology, books, art supplies and so much more.  Below is the link…

https://wolfcanyontimberwolves.files.wordpress.com/2019/02/wolfcanyonparent-letter.jpg?w=543&h=703

2.  Please remember that library books needs to be returned week to week.  If you do misplace your book you can always send in payment to clear your account.

3.  Please remember that your kiddos should not be bringing any small toys to school in their backpacks.  Very often we are finding toys being brought into our classrooms and on the playground that need to stay at home.  It is always a great idea to do a backpack check daily…

4.  We do need all T-Shirt orders returned ASAP.  We sent home a second order form last week on bright green paper.  We would love for each kiddo to order a shirt- so that when we go on our field trips and such we can all wear our WC Kinder shirts.  We are finding that we haven’t received very many and don’t want to make the order until we get 100% in all classes.

Weekly Post for Week of 2/11

th-11

Hello Amazing Kinder Parents,

As we start our week here are a few reminders…

A special note:  In our weekly HW we have begun to include a writing task.  The purpose of this writing task is for your kiddos to practice what we have worked on in class at home to build both their writing confidence and writing stamina.  We ask that when your kiddo is writing that you help them to sound spell words that are decodable (I.E.  house= hows,  leader=ledr), encourage them to spell sight words  (I.E.  the, like, you)  correctly and to have them read back what they have written.  We are finding that many children are turning in writing that is not matching what they produce in class with specific supports.  Remember we don’t want parents to do the writing- we want our kiddos to do the writing…  this is a key piece in our writing program and we need your help and support with this.

1.  Thursday-  Feb  14th is Jump For Heart…  we will all go out to jump at 2:15 to 2:45 PM.  Please make sure your kiddos ae dressed in safe and appropriate shoes and clothing for this event.

 

th-4

 

2.  Thursday- 2/14  is Valentine’s Day…and we will be exchanging Valentine cards on this day.  Letters were sent home 2 weeks ago asking for our kiddos to simply sign 24 cards and if needed bring 24 treats.  This way when it is time to pass these cards out it is much simpler to have no names rather than helping 24 kiddos read 24 names…. 24 times…. Yikes!!!

 

th-3

3.  Just a reminder that a few weeks back we sent home a bright pink paper about Kinder T-Shirt orders.  Thus far we have received less than 20 gradewide.  We will send home a second reminder sheet about these shirts.  It is a great chance for all of our kiddos to have a special shirt for our upcoming field trips and special days in kinder.  The orders need to be placed prior to us going out on Spring Break- and all orders need to be paid in cash.   We would love for every child to have a special kinder shirt.

 

4.  Just a reminder that there is no school this Friday- Feb. 15th and Monday- Feb, 18th in honor of President’s Day Weekend.
