Kindergarten News: 2/4

Hi Parents,
The 100th day of school is Tuesday, February 8th. To celebrate 100 days of learning and fun, all students are invited to dress up like they are 100 years old. You may get as creative as you want!

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. A list of your child’s classmates was sent home last week. ?

Take Home Readers continue to go home with your child each week! Please make sure the book bag/envelope is returned to school each Thursday. The school-wide Read-a-Thon will take place next month, so we want our kiddos to build their confidence and stamina to read, read, read
