Kindergarten News: 2/11

Hi Parents,
We had a busy week in kindergarten! Thank you for helping us celebrate the 100th day of school! The children joined in a school-wide parade to show their 100th day style! You can imagine it took awhile with the canes and walkers! 😊 Each class participated in a variety of 100th day literacy and math activities throughout the day. See if your child can count to 100 by 1’s, 5’s & 10’s.

For Valentine’s Day, we are asking each child to make a Valentine card for every child in their classroom & one personalized box to collect their cards/treats. Your child’s teacher has communicated party needs. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Mrs. Twitchel’s guidance lesson is on Staying Safe. She shares ways for children to stay safe if they get lost in a public place & what to do if approached by a stranger. You may reinforce these safety skills at home.
Here’s what is coming up in kindergarten…
