Pajama Day was such a blast! Ms. Gaitings’ class joined us for a special movie and treat. What a great day! Our sing-a-long was so magical. All Kindergarten students gathered in the auditorium to sing holiday songs. We had so much fun.

Over the break, please continue to read with your child. Refer back to the packet I handed out earlier in the week for review worksheets that your child can complete. Here is also a link to a website that provides educational, yet fun games! http://www.abcya.com/ Mrs. Slappay and I wish you and your families a wonderful holiday and a Happy New Year! See you all next year!
