This Week

Along with the study of pet needs we will also be talking about friendship as Valentine's Day quickly approaches. The kindergarten class has asked for a special friendship celebration. Earlier this week you should have received a letter detailing the friendship celebration, aka Cinderella Ball. To prepare for the ball the kiddos will be learning a VERY simple box dance in class. Please join us on Friday the 12th from 1:15-2:00 for this super precious event. Please let us know if you have any questions.


We also need help of some crafty family members for the celebration. We would like 4 different people to come up with a 8-10 minute friendship craft activity for the kiddos to do during the dance. If you are interested please email one of the kindergarten teachers.


Our kiddos will begin participating in passions groups this month through the end of the school year. The passions group will take place on Friday afternoons. The kiddos will be rotating around to different classrooms in the k-2 area only. They will be participating in many different activities. Passions will take the place of show and tell.

Operation Help Columbus Pets

This past week C.A.R.E. came out and spoke with the kiddos. It was a super way to launch our project. C.A.R.E. along with the help of Luna, asked the kindergarteners to provide dog food for the dogs waiting for their forever homes. The kiddos responded with enthusiasm. The kiddos are deciding how to make that happen.

Memory Words of the Week

To help our kiddos learn memory words we have added this section to the newsletter. Each week we will put two memory words for your kiddo to practice at home. The memory words featured in this section will also be the memory words we are practicing in class. We will also do our best to give you ideas in which you can practice the words at home. Please feel free to mark the memory word practice from this section on your child's Homework Menu. If your child is has mastered the memory words of the week feel free to pick a different word off of the BCSC memory word list.

Ideas for Practice:


  • Search candy heart phrases for memory words.
  • Have your child spell a word by arranging small objects to form the letters of the word.
  • Put the memory words on your kiddos favorite snack. Each time they want to have the snack they need to read the memory words to "unlock" the snack.
