Kindergarten News: 12/10

Hi Parents,
Next week the children will take their mid-year assessments. We are very proud of their hard work this semester. Thank YOU for your support!
Next Thursday is a half-day so school will be dismissed at 11:30. We want to close out the year with our winter celebration. Please send your child in their finest evening attire (PJ’s) for a low-key day of hot cocoa, snacks, and other holiday festivities. For their safety, children should wear tennis shoes.

Here’s what is coming up in kindergarten…
