Play, Learn, and Grow in 4K
Retzer Field Trip
The School District of Waukesha offers a summer program for incoming Kindergarteners. It is a wonderful program for all 4Kers and a great way to continue learning throughout the summer. I included a description of the program below, as well as a link to the website. Registration ends April 18th. If you have questions please let me know!
KINDERGARTEN SUMMER EXPERIENCE (for students entering Kindergarten in Fall 2018)
This class is designed to prepare children for the structure of Kindergarten. Each day children will be engaged in whole-group and small-group mini-lessons focused around literacy and math. Literacy concepts may include: alphabet knowledge, phonological awareness, concepts of print, and early writing. Math concepts may include: one-to-one counting, number recognition, patterns and early measurement. Throughout the entire morning there will be an emphasis on independently following routines/directions and being a part of the classroom community. Please note that this class runs from 8:15 a.m.- 12:00 p.m., so please send a snack and water bottle each day.
Summer School runs from Monday, June 17, 2019 and ends on Friday, July 19, 2019. There will be no class on July 4th and 5th.
Volunteer in the Classroom
I have shared a link below to the classroom volunteer calendar. Assisting in the classroom is a great way to get involved and to learn what your child's school day is like. You can choose to stay for the whole class session or if it works better for your schedule you can just stop by to be a special story time reader. While in the classroom I may have a special project for you or I may just have you interacting and playing with the kids. Please sign up for a date and time that works best for you.
Before your first time volunteering you have to complete a background check with the school district. Here is a link for the background check:
I look forward to and appreciate any time you can share!
