Report Cards for Trimester 2

You will find your child's report card in the Friday Folder. I am sending these home today! Please look over the report card and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. If you would like to set up a Zoom Parent Teacher Conference for Spring, I'd be happy to meet with you. These are by request only, and are not mandatory, so if you would like to meet, please email me. Thank you!

Learning practice at home

Homework is optional in Kindergarten, but I would strongly encourage and suggest you take some time each night to choose one of the learning resources below and work with your child for 15-20 minutes. Need login info? Just let me know, and I am happy to send it! Please remember to read with your child each night, and give them plenty of opportunities to read texts at their reading level. Keep practicing sight words too!
