Kindergarten News: 9/24

Hi Parents,
Kindergarten students continue to use Kelso’s Choices to resolve small conflicts at school. Encourage your child to share if they have used a choice in class (or at home)! ?

We made homemade applesauce in class! Children were able to use all five senses as we made this delicious treat together. Thank you for sending in an apple for this tasty project!
