KINDERGARTEN NEWS – 5/17/19

THIS WEEK

-We reviewed basic skills, challenged our minds with tangram puzzles, learned about simple machines and continued with our preparations for graduation.  We also enjoyed a wonderful visit from Scales and Tales – a traveling zoo.  Children enjoyed getting up close and personal with chinchillas, an anteater, baby chicks, a hedgehog, an owl and a sloth.  What a wonderful experience for the children!

-For Jesus Time we had the story of Jesus’ ascension.  We want your child to trust in Jesus’  promise to stay with us always and to take us to heaven to live with Him forever.  That news is so good that we want to share it!

 NEXT WEEK

-We will be finishing up our school year with many writing and reading activities.   Graduation preparation will also be part of our days, so try to make sure your child is at school on time so they won’t miss any of our final activities and preparations.

-Snack Reminder: Monday-Aria, Tuesday-Nia, Wednesday-Avery, Thursday-Elijah, Friday-Andrea.

-Lunch Helpers: Monday-Wright, Thursday-Pancorvo.

REMINDER

-Did you return your graduation RSVP???  If not, please return it in the Friday Folder no later than Monday.  Thank you.

KINDERGARTEN NEWS – 4/12/19

THIS WEEK

-We have been very busy with learning about the weather, opinion writing, subtraction and new sight words.  The children have been awesome learners – mathematicians, scientists, writers and readers.  I can’t believe how much they have grown since the first day of school. 

-Our Bible story this week was about Jesus praying in the garden (Luke 22:39-46).  We want your child to know that God strengthens us when we are tempted to do what we want and not what God wants.  We give thanks that Jesus did His Father’s will and followed God’s plan of salvation.

NEXT WEEK

-School ends for Easter break on Thursday at 11:30 am.  Thursday is a half day of school.  There is no extended care.  Classes resume on Monday, April 29.

-Snack Reminder: Monday-Madelyn (Happy Birthday!), Tuesday-Charlotte, Wednesday-Aria, Thursday-Nia.

-Volunteers: Monday-Wright (lunch), Tuesday-Rivera (lunch), Wednesday –Reykjalin (lunch).

LOOKING AHEAD

-As indicated on the school calendar, kindergarten graduation is on Friday, May 31 at 10:00 am.  Children will arrive and leave with you on this day.  Early in May I will be asking for an approximate number of guests from each family, so be thinking ahead about your plans for this special day.  May 31 is also the last day of kindergarten for the school year. 

That’s all for this week.  Don’t forget that Palm Sunday is this weekend.  Blessings!
