Check Out Ms. Doyle's Kindergarten Class

This week in Kindergarten, students are finishing their community helpers unit! Ms. Doyle's class had a special visit from the dentist this week to learn all about brushing and taking care of their teeth! They even learned a song and dance to practice!


As part of their community unit, Ms. Doyle's class is letting their curiosities guide their learning! They have been brainstorming places in their community and asking questions about them. Soon they will teach other members in the community all about the important places in Westborough!


Finally, the Kindergarteners are learning about measurement in math this week. They participated in some interactive centers to learn about measuring. Students were also caught comparing measurements using "longer than" and "shorter than" language!

Cultural Fair

Come to Hastings with your whole family on Monday, March 2nd from 6:30-8:00! You will receive an "airplane ticket" and get to travel the world. There will be food, crafts, activities, performances, and more! We hope to see you on Monday!


Special Postcard Project:

Each student will have the option to create one postcard. Blank postcards were sent home before the February vacation week. Please fill in: family name, country of origin, and home language. Please draw, or attach photos that represent your culture. This could include: food, holidays, dress, animals, flags, landscapes, etc. Please decorate your own personal stamp any way you want to represent your region. Once this is complete, please return to your teacher by Friday, February 28th! Thanks so much for all of your help!

Reminder! Cents for Seeds

We are still collecting change in our classrooms until Friday, March 6th!! Please send in any spare change you have. No amount is too small! We will use this to buy seeds and supplies to start growing in our classrooms.


Thanks for your help!
