A Message from the Principal
I cannot believe how fast the year has flown. We are so excited with the progress that students have made and of all their hard work!
I would like to extend a warm welcome for parents and families to participate in our School Improvement Plan meetings and our Principal Coffee Hour meetings. We welcome all input and feedback. A Parent Survey will be going out. Please take the time to complete the survey and return it to school. The information we receive is invaluable.
I would like to take the time to remind all parents that it is very important to read 10-15 minutes each night with your children. It is a wonderful time to bond and spend time enjoying a good book. We are hosting Reading Week from April 11-15. We have a lot of fun activities including a Parent Reading Workshop planned and hope everyone participates and has a wonderful time!
Our school has implemented Panda House Program and it has been very successful! Students are working very hard to earn Panda Cash and Rock N'Roll Fridays! They have been doing a terrific job. We will be hosting Wear Your HOUSE Color every other Wednesday. Children who wear their HOUSE color can earn Panda Cash. We appreciate all your support!
Attendance has been a great concern. It is so important that students arrive on time and attend school regularly. Please help us to ensure your child attends school and is ready to learn. All children who come to school on time and each day can earn Panda Cash for their HOUSE. Help your children to win!
Have a wonderful April,
April will be a busy month in kindergarten! In Reading Workshop, We are beginning a unit on nonfiction/Informational books. In this unit, readers will use text to discover, learn and think about their world. In Eureka Math, we have been working on addition, subtraction and number bonds.
Also in April... Some very fuzzy creatures are on their way to kindergarten- Caterpillars! They'll join us as we learn all about metamorphosis! Exciting!
Have a safe + happy Spring Break!
