Harrison Happenings

September 15-19

This Week in Room 300

This week we will continue with learning numbers 6-10 and the next 4 letters of the alphabet (I-L). We will also be starting our lightning words and lightning word notebooks. Do not be alarmed when you see that the lightning word notebook activity has been added to your child's homework. Your child only has to do ONE activity a day. There will be 4 activities total in the book each week. I prefer that they do one activity each night for homework so that they complete all 4 activities by Friday. Each of the activities should take no more than 5 minutes to complete. They just reinforce the words they are learning!


In those lightning word notebooks, you will also see an envelope with flashcards in it. Each week we will add new flashcards according to what words we are learning. Please be aware that your child is expected to know all of those words by the end of the quarter (mid-October) so it is very important that they practice those every single day!

SILENT Auction Items

For the PTO silent auction this year, kindergarten is in charge of the gift card basket. If you are able, please send in a gift card (for any amount and to anywhere) for that PTO gift basket. All of the money raised from the auction will go towards helping our school! Please send in your gift card for the basket by October 6th.

FALL FESTIVAL

The Fall Festival is a very fun event for our school! The Fall Festival will take place on October 10th from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. If you would like to be vendor and help out, please contact the Spearman front office. Also, PTO needs families to send in individually wrapped candy for this event. They ask that you send in candy that will not melt (no chocolate). Please send in the candy by October 9th, and we will make sure it gets to the PTO!

REMINDERS!!

  • Please send only 1 drink with your child for lunch. We do not have enough time for them to finish 2, and we hate for it to be thrown out.
  • We prefer that children only get an ice cream 1 day a week as a reward. Many of them do not have time to eat their lunch and an ice cream every day, and we want them to get plenty of nutritious foods for the day. Please send a note on these days and we will make sure your child has an ice cream. :)
  • Be on the lookout for another Book Club Flyer going home if you would like to order more books for your child.
  • Please make sure to sign your child's behavior and homework sheet every single night
