Monday Letter 9/20/21

Dear Kindergarten Parents,

I hope that you enjoyed the weekend. Thank you for selling magazines to support the school. All of the details are in the EFC if you have not yet created an account. This is an important fundraiser for the school and there are some fun prizes for the kids who sell even one magazine. So I encourage you to participate.

REMINDERS:

  • Sweatshirts; It is starting to get cold and for ventilation purposes our windows must be open, so kids need a sweatshirt or sweater daily
  • Lunch: is going so well! Please know that I am doing all that I can to encourage them to eat their lunch. Also, don’t forget napkins and utensils if needed.
  • Wednesday- mass, perfect uniform
  • Accidents: They happen and we are prepared! We have new underwear and socks, along with uniforms to borrow. If your child comes home in a borrowed uniform , please wash it and return to me. The socks and underwear are meant for you to keep. We gladly accept sock and underwear donations.

This week we are busy learning:

Language Arts:  Our theme is School Rules. Skills taught include identifying beginning sounds, antonyms, nouns for places, predicting as we read, and using interesting words when we write. The new sight words- like, it new phonograms: l-p

Math:   one more, problem solving using a diagram and then we will begin Ch. 2 numbers 6-10.
