Beach Buddies' Bulletin

March 9-13, 2015

Greetings from kindergarten! With the warm weather and basketball excitement, this week flew by! We were sure sad to see Ms. Hanus leave on Friday. A big thank you for all the "goodies" you sent in! We have definitely been blessed with her talents the past 10 weeks. We wish her the best of luck in all to come. We know she'll do great!

Writers' Workshop

In writers' workshop we began writing "How To" stories. Now WE are the teachers...teaching other people how to do something. Ask you kindergartner what they are writing about!

CARES Celebration

Our school has earned an "all school reward" for reaching our CARES card goal. This time our celebration will be a movie at the high school auditorium on Tuesday morning. Look for more info in Monday's folder.


Hopefully melting snow is on the way...this also means MUD is on the way! Please continue to send boots or old shoes IN ADDITION to your child's regular shoes worn in the classroom. We want to keep mud tracks out of our classroom! Thanks for your help with this.

Take Home Books

Be sure to let me know if your child needs support in choosing new or different books to bring home. Typically, your child chooses these books on their own, but I am happy to help as needed!

Go Cards!

Our Cardinals teams have brought us such excitement and it keeps going with the girls this Wednesday! Wear Cardinal colors again on Wednesday to show our support.

Technology Tidbits

iPad Check Out

Want to try some of our iPad apps at home? Your kindergartner can show you how we learn with the iPad throughout the day. A classroom iPad is available for check out! Parents will need to pick up the iPad and drop if off in the classroom. Let me know if you are interested.

Draw and Tell

A great storytelling app we use for making number stories. We can record our voice and make the story pieces move during the recording.
