Permission slips with the trip details went home last week. Please review and sign them as soon as possible even if you do not want your child to go. The trip will NOT cost the families anything because of grants and fundraising. At this point, we are all set with chaperones, however, if that changes, we will be in contact with you. Thank you for your support!

We are adjusting to our new reading program. It is awesome to see how engaged the children are with the stories and the writing! I cannot believe how far every single child has come this far! Check out their writing in the video below! Thank you for all that you do!!

Notes from Miss Driscoll

Please mark your calendars. There are a lot of important dates coming up in such a short time. Last week, students were chosen for different parts in the nursery rhyme play. I will be sending home a note that explains which part they are and what they should wear on that day! Please let me know if you have any questions!

We have our end of math module coming up this week! I can’t wait to see how well your children do on it, they have worked so hard and come so far in such a short time with teen numbers and counting.m by 1’s and 10’s. Please continue practicing these skills at home!

Lots of students have passed in completed reading logs, it is great to see them practicing reading at home and how excited they are to turn in their reading logs!!

Have a great week!

Notes from Mrs. Marcoux

Thank you to those who sent in the permission forms for the field trip. We pulled up information from the Ecotarium webpage and the children are really excited. Please mark your calendars for all of the upcoming events.

The children have been doing a great job with their parts for the Nursery Rhyme play. I hope they have been practicing at home.

Thanks for all you do.

Notes from Mrs. Goldthwaite

Our high school intern Miss Hannah's last day is Monday. We gave her a small gift as she shared a flower drawing to each and everyone of us. We will miss her. She will be attending Keene State in the fall and she wants to be a teacher. Best of luck to her.

We continue to work on our reading stamina. The students are engaged in the books that they are reading during our book bag time. There is a lot of things that happen during the end of the year. I hope you find a time at night to read with your child.

This week we will do our end of Module 5 assessment . We will count to 100 by 1's and 10's.

This week we talked about all the strategies that we use in math. They know so much! I am so excited for them to share with the first grade teachers.

More information to come this week about our Nurseery Rhyme program. This is a great program. The whole kindergarten team is working so hard. It is sounding great.

Our Memorial Day program will be this Friday, May 25th. It would be nice to have students wearing red, white and blue.

Thanks for the donations of Clorox wipes. They are still the only supply that I will need until the end of the school year.

Thanks for your support!
