Kindergarten News: 3/31

Hello Families!
We wrote an informative letter to George Washington about how America has changed over time. We are practicing how to read and spell words with digraphs, blends, and double consonants. In math, we are learning about 3-dimensional shapes and measurement (length, height, weight, and capacity).

-Navigator Day is Wednesday! Please send your student in their field trip shirt.
-One peanut free snack and filled water bottle should be sent each day.
-Students should come to school in SSA each day. SSA includes navy, black, and khaki bottoms. Dresses and jumpers can be any solid color. Shirts can be any solid color with a collar. PPE t-shirts and sweatshirts can be worn any day of the week. PPE athletic shorts and skorts can be worn on Fridays.\

Upcoming Dates:
