Beach Buddies' Bulletin

April 20-24

Hello from K! I am certain all of you are LOVING the inventions that came home with your child on Friday. :) Just what you wanted at your house! We had a fantastic day....lots of creativity and teamwork happening. It always seems to be one of my very favorite days of the year!

Inventions Party

Zoo Information

On Monday there will be an information sheet coming home about the zoo. There is a letter with a form attached. Please return the form by Friday, May 1. Even if you have sent the first zoo RSVP back to school, please return this one as well since it has more specifics about the day and your child's plans. Thank you!

Book Bags

How are your books bags going at home? Remember, these home-to-school books are at your child's reading level and are great practice for first grade. The kindergartners select books independently, so be sure to let me know if books are too hard, too easy, or lacking variety. I can help to guide your kindergartner in this process.

Star Words

Let me know if you are ready for some new star words in your folder. I would be glad to add more!

Pen Pal Visit

Remember, Thursday is our visit to the metro area to meet our Pen Pals. All students will need to bring a BAG lunch on this day. No pop please! Milk, water, or juice would be great. Thank you! This is an all day trip--we'll leave AES about 8:20 and return around 2:30. Let me know if you have any questions. We can't wait for the special day!
