K-04's Classroom Newsletter

Last Week in K-04

We have had a successful week in K-04 getting to know one another! We've shared some of our favorite things and began to learn our friends' names. We had music, gym, and art this week which were a lot of fun! We also spent time discussing our favorite reading memories and shared our hopes and dreams for this school year. Ask your student about something they'd like to do in kindergarten this year!

This Week in K-04

This week we will be establishing our class rules and displaying our hopes and dreams outside the classroom, stop by and check them out!

We have many names collected for our turtles, we are working on discovery a fair way to name all three turtles so that all friends are satisfied.

If you choose to send a water bottle with your student please make sure their name is one it, to avoid any confusion. Thanks in advance.
