Religion- In religion, we heard the story of Jesus' baptism by His cousin, John. Some children brought in photos of their baptismal day and shared what they learned about the special day from their parents.
Guidance- Dr. Pannell helped us practice safety procedures to use in the event we have a lockdown. The book she read described an intruder as a "wolf" on campus and was not alarming to the children. It is reassuring to know that we have plans in place to keep our children safe in any situation.
Language Arts - We finished with our SUPERKIDS friend, Hot Rod, last week and have moved on to a new SUPERKIDS workbook in kindergarten. The new book is about all of the SUPERKIDS characters and we will revisit each character during our week of learning about the SUPERKIDS friends.
This week's workbook is called "Us" and it makes reference to all of the SUPERKIDS characters the students have learned about and how they come together and form a group of friends known as "Us"! The students will learn a new song that highlights meeting all of the SUPERKIDS friends.
International Heritage Fair Volunteers Needed!
Volunteers Needed: January 29
Mosaic Month is a beautiful celebration of the cultural diversity that exists in our community and we rely on our parent volunteers to help make it happen. The culminating event is the International Heritage Fair on Friday, January 29th. If you are interested in either creating a cultural table for the fair or in helping out behind the scenes, please contact Ms. Myvonwynn Hopton at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Thank you!
There are fun games and reading activities your child will enjoy while visiting the site. Accessing the SUPERKIDS' website supports our efforts in the classroom to promote reading skills across the grade and we hope our parents will continue to "partner" with us and try the site with your child!
Our other reminder is to pull forward towards the oak tree area and we will bring your child to your vehicle. Please do not stop in front of the gym area to load your child if you are able to move up in the carpool line towards the oak tree spot.
We will be using a microphone at the end of the day during carpool and ask parents to listen for any instructions given regarding movement of the carpool line.
