Hello Amazing Kinder Parents,

Happy New Year !!!  We hope this post finds you all happy, healthy, and rested.  As we begin our week here are a few reminders.

  1.  Please remember to return your kiddos HW folder daily and to empty it out so that important letters and notices don’t go unnoticed.
  2. As we begin our second half of the year please remember that everyday your kiddo needs a lunch and a snack.  If they are bringing their lunch make sure to label it with their names and the letter “L” and for snack, the letter “S”.
  3. Please remember that as flu and cold season are upon us- make sure your kiddos come to school healthy and fever free.
  4. Please make sure to have your kiddos log onto Raz Kids nightly – our end of the year goal is a level E/F…and the end of the year is fast approaching.

Weekly Kinder Update 12/10


Hello Amazing Kinder Parents,

As we begin our week here are a few reminders to keep you on track.  We do apologize for not posting an update last week- we had some technical difficulties but we are back.

1.  Next week is our last week of 2nd Quarter and report cards will come home on Friday- 12/21,  as well as some fun Holiday crafts too.

2.  For our last Friday- Dec. 21 we are planning on having a fun PJ day, with popcorn, juice, holiday cookies, and some fun Holiday movies.  We are looking for donations of 24 Capri Sun juices for each of our classes as well as some pre-popped bags of popcorn (Smart and Final)  for all 4 classes.  If you are able to donate please let your teacher know- it will help us out greatly.

3.  Please remember that snacks needs to be sent everyday.  Often we have at least 10-15 kiddos without snacks and that makes for a long afternoon.  It can be as simple as a juice and a banana, apple or even crackers and cheese.

4.  Our School Christmas Store opens this week- information will come home this week about this great shopping opportunity for our littles.  See below for more information.

Weekly Kinder Post for 11/26



Hello and Welcome Back…

We hope your Thanksgiving Day was filled with family and yummy food.  As we start our week here are a few reminders…

  1.  HW packets will be sent home today- please note make sure that your kiddo writes their name on their HW packet.  Often they come back without names and then your kiddo does not get credit for their hard work.
  2. Please remember Raz Kids needs to be done daily and with consistency.  As we look over our weekly reports we are finding that kiddos have not been on in over 12 days….  Our end of the year goal is a Level E/F…  if your kiddo is still on Level A… you need to get reading.
  3. APEX continues and please remember this is a great fundraiser for our school.
