Mrs. Richardson's and Mr. Earnest's Kindergarten Class

January 11-15, 2016

Winter is indeed here!

Some of our mornings and days have become really cold, so please make sure your child wears the proper outdoor clothing to school. If the sun is shinning we will go out for recess! And, we want them to be warm while they are out there.

Our Next APTT Meeting is Thursday, January 21st.

Please mark your calendar for our next APTT meeting on Thursday, January 21st, at 5:30. We will go over our first APTT goal of counting to 100. I will introduce a new skill and ways you can help your child attain this goal at home.

Kindergarten Bake Sale

We will continue to have our in-class Bake Sale, thank you to all who have supported it. So far we have raised enough money to buy the Osmo program for our iPads. Our new goal is to raise enough money to pay for our weekly newsletter that you receive through email.

Please remember that all the money we raise directly benefits your child's classroom and ultimately, your child's education. All snack items are .50 each.

It's Harvest Time!

If you remember, last October we planted a small garden of carrots, radishes, and lettuce. Well, this week we harvested our crops! While our harvest was not as bountiful as we would of liked, none of our carrots grew, we were able to get enough radishes and lettuce for a tasting.
