Noche de Regreso a Clases

Queridos padres:

El dia de mañana los esperamos para la noche de regreso a clases (Back to School Night). En esta reunión vamos a darles a conocer el curriculum que vamos a llevar en este ano los grupos de Pre-K 3 y 4.

La reunión será de 6:00-7:30 pm. Los niños se quedaran en casa por favor. No queremos hablar en español en presencia de los estudiantes. Comenzaremos a las 6 de la tarde, en el área del comedor donde se hara la presentación del personal de la escuela y después pasarán al salón de su hijo(s) donde se tendrán 3 sesiones de 15 minutos cada una. Recuerden que no se podrá contestar preguntas acerca de los estudiantes, si usted tiene alguna pregunta o preocupación por su hijo de como le esta llendo en clase, favor de hacer para tener una junta con la maestra(s).

We will be meeting tomorrow night between 6:00-7:30 p.m. for BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT! We will begin upstairs in the cafeteria at 6 p.m. Principal Katie Dempsey will be addressing the parents and will be introducing all staff. Then we will ask parents to attend one session(unless you have several siblings in other grades). As soon as you attend a session, you may leave. Session one will be from 6:30-6:45, Session two will start at 6:50-7:05 and Session three from 7:10-7:25.

Unfortunately,due to time constraints, we are unable to talk to you about how your child is doing. Please email us if you have questions about your child.

Students may not attend on this evening. If you are unable to come due to childcare problems, we will send home all information discussed on FRIDAY. We cannot speak in English if the children are present. We would love for at least one parent to attend. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow night!!

Nuestro plan de esta semana es el siguiente:

Our Weekly plans for this week:

Oral Language Development. Teacher will present a lesson on the following theme “En la Escuela”. Objectives: Color names in Spanish (vocabulary), school tools (vocabulary), participating songs and games (listening and speaking), and memorize and recite (learning strategy).

Phonics instruction using “Estrellita” program. We introduced the Sonidos Iniciales Wall Chart and the Initial Sounds of three objects oso, avión e imán.

Math class. Children will be divided into their math groups at their assigned tables. Math manipulatives will be placed at each table for them to discovery play with number concepts. Math tubs will be rotated daily.

Religion. Who is Mother Mary and name the members of the Holy Family. Stories will be read in Spanish. We will celebrate Mary’s birthday on September 8th. Also we will learn to recite Hail Mary.

Please remember to send a blanket to cover during Nap time. We send them home on Fridays for you to wash. Send it in a plastic bag that is not a grocery bag. Those rip very easily. Blankets cannot be very large. They do not fit in the cubbies.

Immunization records are still missing for many students. Next week I will send a note to every parent that is missing a form at school. We can lose our Childcare license if we do not have your child’s immunization record in the office. It is very important you get this to us right away.

Seahawks Fridays: Children may wear a SEAHAWKS T-SHIRT and JEANS on Friday until we get the Holy Rosary Spirit Shirts. After you purchase your Holy Rosary Spirit shirt, you may still wear SEAHAWKS wear on Fridays if you prefer.

We will be going to church tomorrow for Mass. Please be sure your children are in full uniform. Thank you so much for all your support as we get our school year rolling.

Have a wonderful weekend! Sincerely, Sra. Raquel, Sra. Farias y Sra. Laura
