Weekly Post for Week of 12/9

 

th-3Hello Amazing Kinder Parents,

As we begin our busy week here are a few reminders.

  1.  This will be the last week for HW to be sent home this quarter.  Please make sure all HW is completed and returned next Monday- 12/16.
  2. All library books need to be returned weekly.  We are having on average 8-10 kiddos who aren’t bringing their books back on a regular basis.   It is so important to have books returned weekly so that your kiddos can check out new books.
  3. Winter Break is 12/23 through 1/13 – Students Return Tuesday, January 14th which is a Minimum Day dismissal at 1:30.
  4. The last Friday (12/20) before break we will be celebrating with a Winter Celebration that will include a fun Holiday Movie, some yummy cookies and of course some juice.  We are looking for donations of Store bought Christmas Cookies and Capri Suns for each class.  Our classes have 24 students per class- thank you.  Please let you teachers know if you can donate cookies and juice.
  5. Be on the lookout for information about our Holiday Gift Shop…. this is a great opportunity to have your kiddos buy gifts for your family.  The Holiday Gift Shop will be open the last week before our Winter Break (12/16-12/20)

Weekly Post for Week of 11/18

Hello Amazing Kinder Parents,

Mark your calendars this Friday- 11/22 is our Stone Soup Sing Along Celebration.  Letters were sent home with all of the information last week on orange paper.  The Sing Along will start at 12:45 in our classrooms.  You do not need to go through our school office- please go right to your kiddos classroom through our kinder gate.  Please allow for time for parking as we have over 125 Kinder families.  After we sing in our classrooms we will go outside to enjoy our delicious Stone Soup.  We are looking forward to a wonderful afternoon full of memories, laughter, fun.  Please let your teacher know if for any reason you are unable to attend.

Here are a few other friendly reminders as we begin our last week before Thanksgiving Break:

  1.  There will be no Homework Packet this week as it is the week before Thanksgiving and we want our families to enjoy their family time during break.  We do however strongly encourage all of you to have your kiddos complete Raz Kids books daily.  By this time of the year we love for all of our kiddos to be at a level C…  as our end of the year goal is a level E/F.  If your kiddo is still on a level AA or A…. it is time to get them going on Raz Kids daily- as they are behind in their reading practice.
  2. Please remember that this week on Monday we will be sending home letters with some of our kiddos asking for donations for our Stone Soup.  We are asking that if you are donating a vegetable it be sent in raw and cleaned- not cooked.  The teachers will then take all of the yummy donations home and prepare the Stone Soup.
  3. As the weather starts to cool down jackets are becoming needed.  Please make sure that any and all jackets are labeled with a name- so that when they go missing they are much easily found.
  4. Remember to send snacks daily in bags that are labeled with names.  Often kiddos don’t have snack and we are providing snacks for now, after Thanksgiving break we will no longer provide snacks daily to those who forgot as it is too costly for us to maintain.
  5. We are also looking for some fun treasures for our treasure box- as the holidays fast approach holiday treasures would be fun.  (party favors and small trinkets work best.)
  6. Parents we need your help- we are in need of some donations for our classrooms.  If you can donate any of the below items it would be so greatly appreciated.

1.  8 1/2 x 11 laminating pouches

2.  Gluesticks

3.  White Lunch bags

4.  Lysol Wipes

5.  Sheet Protectors

6.  small candy canes

Hello Amazing Kinder Parents,

As we begin our spooky week here are a few reminders:

  1.  As you all know Thursday- 10/31 is Halloween and our school has a policy of no costumes at school on this day.  We want those costumes in good shape for all of that trick-or-treating excitement.
  2. We are beginning a  2 week unit on pumpkins and are asking for each student to donate a pumpkin for our investigations.  It should be able to be carried by your kiddo- no huge ones please.  Please make sure it is a real pumpkin- no fake ones please.
  3. Please remember to send snacks daily- there are no snacks sold during our snack time.  On average there are 12-15 kiddos per day that don’t have snack and we provide them with a snack (fruit snacks or goldfish) because we don’t want them to be hungry.  However, after Thanksgiving Break there will be no more snacks provided as the expenses are becoming too much to sustain.
  4. Don’t forget our school Masquerade Ball is this coming Saturday- Nov. 2…

Hello Amazing Parents,

As we begin our week here are a few reminders:

  1.  Our APEX fundraiser is in full swing and hopefully by now your kiddos have got some pledges.  Our run event is this Thurs- 9/12 and our kinders will run from 9:00-10:00.  Please come out to cheer them on- make signs and have some fun.  Please make sure to send them with water on Thursday and some comfy running shoes.  If you haven’t already please make sure to log onto the website with your kiddos code to enter their shirt size.  On Thurs. we will give them APEX shirts for the event.

2.  Starting Thursday 9/12 and through next week 9/20 we will be on minimum day dismissal with 1:30 as our ending time.  Please make sure to make the proper arrangements for pick-up as teachers are conferencing and don’t have time to watch children after school.

3.  Please make sure to send library books weekly- if your kiddo still has a book out from the previous week they will not be allowed to check out a new one.  If the book goes missing then it will be necessary to pay for the missing book.

4.  Please note that this week HW looks a bit different.  It is modified due to our conference schedule and our minimum day dismissals.  It will focus on letter fluency as well as the use of Raz Kids for daily reading.
