Friday Centers

Today the children enjoyed participating in our Friday centers. They got to create shapes with play doh using cookie cutters, color their own Chester Raccoon book, build with blocks, and explore  apps on the iPads. We had a great first week of kindergarten!

September Snack Calendar

Here is our snack calendar for September! Please remember  to send snack with your child on their designated day. Snacks should follow the foods of nutritional value listed in the student handbook. Please do not send candy, cookies, or cake. Cupcakes can be sent to school for your child's birthday. Thank you so much!!

First Week of School

We've had a fantastic first week of school! Take a look at our newsletter to see what we learned this week and what is coming up next week. Next Friday, September 6th, we will have our Grandparent's Day Lunch. Please see the form in your child's folder for more information. Fill the form out over the weekend and send it back to school on Tuesday. We look forward to seeing our student's grandparents. We have a special gift to give them on Friday!

Remember that Monday, September 2nd is a school holiday. School will resume at normal time on Tuesday!

I have really enjoyed getting to know your child this week! We have had a great time learning about each other. I'm looking forward to a SUPER year!

Have a great weekend!

The children enjoyed playing letter games on the iPads, creating coconut trees with their name, organizing alphabet puzzles, and matching letters on coconut themed  magnetic cookie sheets! It was a great day filled with lots of learning!!

First Day of Kindergarten

Wow!! We've had a SUPER day! I enjoyed getting to see everyone's smiling faces this morning! Today at school we learned each other's names, met our counselor Mrs. Miller, and visited the library and computer lab! We also experienced lunch in the cafeteria for the first time and got to play outside for recess! Everyone got their picture taken beside the tiger in the front of the school. We also drew a picture of ourselves during centers! Today was just the beginning of a fun year ahead! Thank you for sharing your child with me!

End of the School Year

Wow! I can't believe how fast this school year had gone by! I have enjoyed watching my students grow and learn throughout the year! They look like completely different children than those that walked into my classroom on the first day of school! Thank you for sharing your child with me! They each have truly been a blessing and a joy to teach! I will cherish each and every one of them. They hold a very special place in my heart! I hope all of you enjoy the summer break!
