Notes from the teacher


We are beginning to feel back in the routine as we embark on our 3rd 9 weeks. I have been so proud of the wonderful behavior the class as a whole has been displaying. Our WOW chart is overflowing each day! :) Please make sure that you are still checking and signing behavior charts each day.


We will be celebrating the 100th day of school on Friday, January 22nd from 1:00-2:40. I sent a couple of forms home in your child’s folder today about some of our activities that day. Please make sure to send back the yellow permission slip in order for your child to participate in the snack portion of our fun. If you are interested in coming in to help out with the different stations during that time, please let me know.


If you haven’t had the chance to view your child’s report card, please do so on Skyward.

Have a nice 3 ½ day weekend!

100 CANNED FOODS for the 100th day!

Our 100th day of school is quickly approaching! Over the last several months at school we have focused on learning to be a good friend and being kind to others in our school family. To celebrate one hundred days of school we would like to commemorate this special day by doing something kind for our community. We will be collecting canned goods for local food pantries. Our goal as a grade level is to donate 100 canned foods in honor of 100 days of friendship in kindergarten at TCE. This activity is completely optional. Any student choosing to participate may bring in their canned goods anytime up until the 100th day.

Thank you for helping us to celebrate in this special way!

Discovery News

Hello wonderful parents! This is Mrs. Foust with our news from Discovery. This week we continued our friendship unit. We discussed what it means to be a good friend and what others look for when finding a friend. For our social skills lesson, we talked about having to wait and how we sometimes need to be patient. On our movement day, students had lots of fun with movement stations! It was wonderful to see students working on balance, trampolines, scooter boards, and jumping patterns. Ask your child about his/her favorite activity!
