Dear Kindergarten Families,
Happy New Year! We hope all of you enjoyed your winter break and had a nice holiday with your families. We would like to start off by saying thank you to all of our Kindergarten families. Your support has been tremendous and we appreciate everything that you have done for our classes.
Thank you to all the parents that donated items or their time to make our holiday celebrations a success. K-1 and K-2 had a wonderful time on this day, and loved participating in the various holiday centers.
It is back to business as usual in Kindergarten. We are getting used to being back in the classroom and re-establishing our daily routines. This first week back week we studied letter “Vv”, worked very hard in our journals, and continued to sound out our words in our daily reading & writing jobs. We are so pleased to see so much growth in our students now that they are back at school. We also have talked about our favorite parts of 2016 and what we would like to learn to do in 2017. We are setting some wonderful goals for the year ahead which will help prepare us for first grade. Let’s keep up the good work! Today a nightly Reading Log is coming home with your child. Please read through the directions. This reading program will take place until the end of the school year. Reading is such an excellent way to help your child learn how to read and write themselves. Thank you for taking an interest in your child’s education and well-being.
