We took out our watercolor paints for the first time to paint our rainbow fish that we made to reinforce things that begin with Ff. They turned out so beautiful so we hung them up on our lockers to share with the rest of the school!

Fire Safety Week

Last week was Fire Safety Week. The Buffalo fire department came to help us learn about how to prevent fires and what to do if there is one. They even let us climb through the fire truck!

Read-a-thon and STAR Readers

Don't forget to support our school's Read-a-thon sponsored by Tatanka PTO! Your child's log-in information was sent home in his/her FROG Book last week.

Information about our Tatanka STAR Reader program also went home last week. For every 10 books your kindergartener reads, please fill out and sign one of the colored scales on the last page of the packet and we will hang it up on our fish.

Reminder: No School October 14-16 for Fall Break
