Hi Parents,

It is hard to believe we will be celebrating the 100th day of school on Monday! This is such an important milestone and we look forward to seeing how the children will look as their one hundred year old selves! While we encourage the children to dress up, it is optional. We plan to have a day filled with fun literacy and math activities.

We share a lot in kindergarten! Unfortunately, this also includes germs. Please make sure children are fever free (without fever-reducing medication), nausea free and diarrhea free for 24 hours before sending them to school. Nurse Donna showed every kindergarten student how to thoroughly wash their hands, which is the best way to prevent the spread of germs.

In guidance, Mrs. Twitchel has stressed the importance of each child knowing the first and last name & phone number of at least one parent, should they ever get lost in a store. Her lesson also includes a discussion about strangers (people you don’t know) and safe people at home & school. These topics come from the Safe at Last unit.

Here’s what is coming up in kindergarten….
