THANK YOU PARENTS!
Everybody had an awesome time learning about Mexican-American history and heritage on our field trip at Olvera Street! We would like to express our gratitude to all the parent chaperones and to Mrs. Richelle Huizar and Mrs. Soto for organizing this fun learning event for our Kindergartners.
If you have not yet returned the tap cards for the metro, kindly return them to your child's teacher. Thank you!

Language Arts - We've completed our Superkids Club student books and will be introducing long vowels.
Math - In math this week we continued to review both flat and three dimensional shapes. We played guessing games by giving clues and then guessed the correct shape. For example: "I am a three dimensional shape. I have one flat surface, one point and I can roll. What am I?" Ask your child for the answer! We also built using shapes.
KINDERGARTEN FAITH CORNER
When Jesus went up to heaven, He promised to send a Comforter for His people. During religion, we heard the amazing story of when the Holy Spirit came to Jesus' friends in the form of a flame. The disciples could suddenly speak different languages and tell about God's love. They were able to heal the sick. At Olvera Street, we saw a mural depicting this moment in history.
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever,
Dr. Pannel also visited the classrooms and shared information about the ingenious octopus and clever sea otter. Even animals can solve problems and take care of others.
