As the year is ending, we are wanting to have our kiddos prepared as much as possible for first grade. While first grade brings tons of fun and new learning, we have noticed through the years that looping can create familiarity between the students and sometimes with the teacher that causes some behavior to slip. (Some of this behavior we are already beginning to see already in our classrooms).

In order to help with this, the kindergarten teachers have decided to start sending Communication Notes home starting next week!!

There are two different types of notes that could be sent home with your child. One is a "I did not have a great day" and the other note will be turned into a positive celebration letting you know about your child's progress! Most days, your child will not receive either note and no news is good news! These notes will only be sent home when necessary. The "I did not have a great day" note will have a Parent Signature required and returned to school. Please look at the pictures of the two different notes below so you know what to expect.

If we feel there is a positive reaction and behavior improves with these notes, we will continue to use them in 1st grade starting at the beginning of the year! :)
