Field Trip!

We are so excited to be able to share our kindergarten field trip plans with you!


On Thursday, April 18th we will be going to visit "Crayola Experience" in Plano. In years past we have visited the Dallas Zoo, but due to repeated traffic/weather complications we are eager to explore this new option! Because this destination is indoors, but still very hands on and engaging, we are looking forward to this change.


At this point you should have received:


  • an information sheet regarding the trip
  • a release form for those of you who are planning to chaperone and take your child home with you
  • a permission slip


All permission slips and money ($13) should be turned in by Thursday, February 7th. If you have misplaced any of these forms, please let your child's teacher know and she will be happy to get you another copy! Thank you!!

Word Wall

The table below is of our kindergarten word wall, and it will be updated weekly with our new word(s). Please practice these words with your child at home so that they will become memorized and recalled quickly. :)
