We Are Sailing Through Kindergarten!

May 13th, 2016

This week...

  • This week we finished publishing our advertisements. We celebrated our published work with a publishing party in class. What an unforgettable experience it was to publish on the iPads! We are becoming both writing and technology experts. A special thanks to our moms and dads for partnering with us in our writing experiences. Another special thanks to Mrs. Donovan, our "technology guru", for helping us with this project. Check out the video below to see our DIGITAL advertisements!
  • Our video from our Special Person Day party is also posted below. Feel free to enjoy it a second time around. :)
  • IMPORTANT! On Friday, May 20th, we have an early dismissal due to Incoming Kindergarten Orientation. The children will be leaving school at 11:30 A.M. There is no CARES! If your child attends the JCC, please call the office for more information. Please send your child in with a snack, but you DO NOT need to pack a lunch. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you!
