Fall Festival . . . . . . . . . . Thursday 6pm-8pm

Please join the Ruth Hill Family on Thursday for an evening of fun, food, and games. The Kindergarten Team is sponsoring a Funnel Cake booth. All proceeds from this booth go directly back into our classroom to help buy classroom supplies and instructional materials

Thanksgiving Feast November 19

We will spend the month of November learning about the first Thanksgiving. This past week the students learned about the Pilgrim's journey on the Mayflower. This coming week we will talk about the hardship they endured that very first year in the New World. The following week will be spent on understanding the role the Native Americans played in their survival and the true meaning of Thanksgiving. On Wednesday, November 19th we will conclude this unit of study with a classroom Thanksgiving Feast. Please look in the agenda for more information.

Highlights from Show and Tell

Please don't forget to work with your child on their Show and Tell presentation. The ability to "describe" is a important skill that I assess every Friday. This is part of our effort to get our students to notice details and to verbally communicate what they see. As explained in our APTT meeting, "describing" is the foundation or the first step in the evaluation process.


This week's assignment was to bring in a household item. Below Hunter is describing a skillet and Micah a tablespoon.

Graphing - Students collecting data
