This Week's News
Kindergarten is going CAMPING!! On September 17th students will spend the afternoon outside exploring the outdoors, learn in a tent, and make smores by the campfire. The first book students read in Kindergarten is called HOT, HOT, HOT. IT is about a family who goes camping and builds a fire to cook popcorn. What better to understand what we are reading about then to experience camping for ourselves! A permission slip is being sent home today in the homework folder. Please sign and return. We also need some supplies and volunteers. If you can help out, please let me know on the permission slip!
Index cards- I apologize that index cards were not on the school supply list. Please send in one pack of index cards for your child to use to create their sight word flashcards. Thank you for your help!
APTT- Mark your calendar to join us on Sept. 15 from 5:30-7:00 pm. During this meeting you will learn about your child's performance on a particular standard and what you can do at home to help your child master the standard. Childcare will be provided. Please RSVP to let me know who will be attending to represent your child. You may RSVP using the APTT RSVP form button below or by returning the forms that have been sent home. Please let me know ASAP who will be coming to represent your child.
Advanced Ed Parent Survey- In January, Coweta County will be reviewed for accreditation renewal. In preparation for the visit we are collecting data to share about our school. Please click the Advance Ed Parent Survey button below to answer 4 questions about our school. The information that you provide is anonymous. Thanks!

This Week's Learning Goals
Sight Words: the, my, is
Math: Shapes-Identify and describe shapes (squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres).
- MGSEK.G.1 Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.
- MGSEK.G.2 Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
- MGSEK.G.3 Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three-dimensional (“solid”).
- MGSEK.G. 4 Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/“corners”) and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).
- MGSEK.G. 5 Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.
- MGSEK.G. 6 Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, “Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?”
