We Are Ready to Sing!

Kindergarten students invite you to attend our musical celebration of all the things we learned this year! Don’t miss it! The performance will take place in the Cross Oaks cafeteria on Thursday, May 25th at 6:30pm.

After the show, performers will stand on stage for a two minute photo opportunity before being released to parents.

Kindergarten students are invited to dress up as what they’d like to be when they grow up. Performers should meet Mrs. King in the main hallway by the music room at 6:20 pm.

Look for Guided Reading Books

Please search your house for guided reading books. We must turn in all books by Friday!


Thank you!

Important Information

  • If you eat lunch with your child at school, only your child may eat with you on the stage. Other school children must remain seated at their lunch table.
  • Be sure your student arrives on time in the mornings before 7:50.
  • Check blue O.W.L. folders EACH NIGHT! Important information comes home in these as well as behavior marking in the back.
  • Kindergarten can be a messy place! Please keep a seasonal change of clothes (in a ziploc bag) in your child’s backpack at all times. Aside from many hands-on Kindergarten learning experiences that sometimes get messy, children sometimes go down wet slides, fall down in the mud, or spill their lunch in their lap.
  • Don't forget to label your child's coat and sweaters, lunch boxes and water bottles. If your kiddo is missing something, let me know and I will let them go look for it in our lost and found.
