Kindergarten Newsletter

May 16, 2016

This Week

It is hard to believe that this is going to be our last newsletter for the school year! The kiddos have worked very hard this year! It is fun to look back at and see how much each kiddo has grown over the course of the year!



The final days of school are very busy. Here is a list of everything we will be doing for the rest of the year. Family members are always welcome and encouraged to attend all of the upcoming events! If you are planning to chaperone one or both of the walking field trips please email your kiddo's teacher.


  • Tuesday, May 17 @ 8:30-10:00ish 7th Street Cummins Garden Trip

    • Kindergarten will be walking to the 7th Street Cummins Garden to move dirt into the raised garden beds. Please be sure to dress your child in old clothes that day. We will be getting dirty!

    • If you are planning to come and help move dirt please bring a shovel if you have one.

    • If it rains on Tuesday, we will try and reschedule our walking field trip for Wednesday!

  • Monday, May 23 @ 1:30 Kindergarten Promotion

    • Kindergarten will be having a promotion ceremony. The kiddos will sing a few songs and receive a certificate. Afterwards, there will be cookies and punch for families to enjoy together. We ask that you do not park in the bus zone. The bus will arrive for dismissal before the event is over.

  • Tuesday, May 24 @ 9:30- Orange Leaf Paw Party

    • Kindergarten will be taking a walking field trip Orange Leaf. We will also get to play on the Kid’s Commons playground.

    • Report cards will be sent home Tuesday afternoon

    • All kiddos will be dropped off and picked up at Donner Park. Please see the yellow page that was sent home for details. If you need another copy please write a note in your child’s take home folder or send an email.

Summer Birthdays

We wanted to be sure every child with a summer birthday has the opportunity to celebrate with their class. Each child with a summer birthday was given a celebration day in May before school lets out. You are welcome to send in snacks on your kiddo's celebration day. Please remember no homemade treats. The class really enjoys individually wrapped frozen treats, rice crispy treats, and cookies.

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.
