Beach Buddies' Bulletin

May 2-6, 2016


Please be sure your kindergartner is leaving all toys and stuff animals at home during the school day. These treasures can be a distraction to our learning. Thank you!

Preschool Visitors

Tuesday we had the preschoolers visit to help them with the transition next year. Seems like yesterday that YOUR kids were visiting us in kindergarten! We loved being the "older" helpers and did a great job showing the preschoolers the ropes of K!

Beach Buddies Gathering

On Wednesday, May 18th we will be having our Kindergarten Concert. BEFORE the concert, our class will be meeting in our classroom at 5:15. We will have a little class "show" and then view a movie of memories from the year. You won't to miss this! We then will need to be at the high school by 6:15 for our 6:30 kindergarten concert with all the others K classes.

We are still looking for some helpers for our trip to the library on Tuesday, May 10th, from 8:45-10:15ish AND for our trip to the Care Center on Thursday the 12th from about 9:00-10:00. Thank you!
