Looking Ahead

There are lots of important things happening around Kedron in the next several weeks. Stay on top of them by checking the Kedron website, PTO emails, and teacher updates. Our class had a wonderful week learning about community helpers again through reading & math. Our class worked on identifying coins, learned how to identify unknown words and strategies to figure out what they mean, and learned about Constitution Day! We made some traffic light cookies to end our community helper week! Next week, we will begin our apple unit. Please send your child's favorite apple to school with them (red, yellow, or green). Check out the "Things to Know" section for more information!

Things to Know

Fall Conferences

Please use this link to signup for a fall parent/teacher conference.

Fall Festival

The Fall Festival is coming! Next Friday, from 5pm to 8pm, the PTO will be putting on an awesome festival for our students. Please plan on coming out and supporting Kedron. An extra order form is being sent home today in case you missed the first one. Hope I will see you there!

PTO really needs some more parents to volunteer for this event. Please consider using a small portion of your time to give back to our wonderful school! This is the signup for volunteers:

Mystery Readers

We have loved having Mystery Readers come visit our class and read to us. This is the signup for October Mystery Readers. If you have signed up for September, I ask that you wait a bit until signing up again to allow other parents a chance to come. If there are still available spots open after a week, I will open the signup to all. Remember, it does not have to be just a parent. An aunt, uncle, grandma, etc. are just as welcome to come read to us!

Please signup here:

Wish List

We need an apple for every student. Please ask your child what color apple is his or her favorite and have them choose a red, yellow, or green one to bring to school. I would like all apples here by Thursday, September 22nd. We will use the apples for special activities and then on Monday, September 26th we will make applesauce on Johnny Appleseed's birthday!

Field Trip

Our field trip is October 14th. Thank you in advance for returning permission forms along with field trip money. If you have returned your form without the field trip money, we have returned it back to you. Please send both the form and money together, this helps with our receipts. Please keep in mind that if we do not get enough money from each child for the trip, we will have to cancel the trip. If you are having financial concerns or hardships, please reach out to me and let me know!

Mrs. Thomas' Class Has Talent!

We had so much fun learning about the jobs of different family members. We would LOVE to have a few people come in to speak to us. If you would like to come share about your job OR know someone who would like to come talk about their job to our class, please email me!
