Kindergarten News: 8/26

Hi Parents,
We are working hard to learn about our five senses and how they help us learn about the world. We are identifying groups of objects and counting to 10 by ones. We are also working on cutting with scissors. Each class met the Advocacy Center Coach and learned all about Percy’s Place buckets. These buckets have tools to help us calm down when we feel big emotions. We hope you enjoy seeing your student’s work come home each Friday!

-One peanut free snack and water bottle should be sent each day.
-Field trip shirts can be worn any day of the week, but are specifically worn on Navigator days, field days, and field trips. Please send your student to school wearing their red field trip shirt on Thursday, September 1, 2022 as this is our first Navigator day.
-Please label all clothing with your student’s name. Many students have PPE Spirit wear and we want to ensure it gets home with the correct student.
