News for the week of January 2nd
Miss Cleasby's 4K News
We will start sending home 4K Literacy Bags next week Tuesday, January 8th to those families that sign up to receive them. I will be sending home a form tomorrow where you can choose. The “book bags”, as I will refer to them, usually contain books, activities, stuffed animals, and various other items that relate to the book bag theme. The “book bags” are designed to be fun and informative ways for families to share literacy and learning experiences at home. Book Bags are a way to connect our school family with your home family in meaningful and enjoyable ways. The bags may contain specific theme related books and materials for you to enjoy at home with your child. Some bags are for special occasions such as birthdays and others are to reinforce things we are learning about in class.
The “book bags” will be sent home with students on Tuesdays and should be returned to school by the following Monday. We have 10 book bags per class (am and pm). Not every student will get to take home a bag each week. However, we will keep track and make sure that every student will be getting equal turns taking the different bags home.
