Kindergarten Celebration:
Mark your calendars!  You won't want to miss our kindergarten celebration on the last day of kindergarten!  It will begin at 10 am in our classroom.  

Walking Field Trip:
We will be walking to the fire station on June 8.  We will leave school promptly at 9:45.  Late birds must arrive no later than 9:40 that day.  Any board approved parents are welcome to walk with us.  Information and permission slips will be coming home next Monday.  

Kindergarten Field Day:
We will be having a kindergarten field day before our Kindergarten Celebration. All helping parents who are board approved are welcome to help during field day.  

Sight Words:
Please be sure you are practicing your child's sight word lists daily.  There are some students that have not been bringing in sight words for testing.  When children do not master their sight words, they most often do not progress.  Please be sure to get new cards if you need them.  Just ask.
