Mrs. Richardson's and Mrs. Dorothy's Kindergarten Class

April 13 - April 17

Welcome Back

Dorothy and I would like to welcome you back from Spring Break. It is hard to believe that WE ONLY HAVE 30 DAYS OF SCHOOL LEFT, and so much to do!! So, we hope that your break was restful because we will hit the ground running. We basically have until the end of April to finish up our lessons and the month of May will be full of year end assessments, which include:


  • GKIDS-this is a state mandated assessment that assesses all 85 kindergarten level standards. The results are reported to the Georgia Department of Education.
  • Student Growth Assessment-this is a county assessment that assesses the level of academic growth your student made this year. It is reported to the Coweta County School System
  • Year End Report Card Assessments-these assessments will determine the final report card grades and your child's placement for next year.


As you can see, we will be quite busy and as temping as it may be, please don't let up on homework, making sure your child gets a good nights sleep every night, and eating a healthy breakfast every morning. And, most importantly, please make sure they come to school everyday and on time. Everyone has worked so hard this year, let's see it all the way through to the end!

Sight Word Super Stars!

These two guys, Landen and Jayden, earned their Super Stars last week. So very proud of them.

APTT Night was a Great Success!

Thank you to all who came out to our last APTT night. I hope that the skill we reviewed was helpful, not only for next year's sight words, but in many areas of study your child will encounter in the years to come. Just as I post the STEM project pictures of my students, I find that I must also post their parent's STEM project pictures! I think we all walked away with a better understanding of how challenging these STEM projects can be!

This Week's STEM Project: Create a Soil Sorter

We recently finished up our science unit on rocks and soil. One topic we discussed in this unit was the qualities of good planting soil. The students decided that soil that didn't have big rocks would be the best for growing plants. This STEM assignment was for the students to design a machine that would sort unwanted rocks from the soil.
