Library

We go to the library every Wednesday. Students are allowed to check out 1 library book at a time and it is not due back for 2 weeks. Students are to turn in their library book on Tuesday, though they can drop it off before then. This helps us to make the most of our 30 minutes in the library.

Thanksgiving Feast

Save the Date - we will be having our annual Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast on November 14th. We will be celebrating in the MPR with a feast and if time allow we will have a few games. Parents are invited to come. We hope to see you there.

Scholastic Book Club
A great way to increase your home library and help our class earn free books at the same time is through Scholastic Book Clubs. I will order books on a monthly basis and they will be delivered straight to our class. I only submit the order once a month in order to get the most points possible. I can then use those points to get free book and class manipulatives for the students.  If interested, follow the link above and enter class code: P8BFW. I encourage you to look through their inventory to find classic literature and stories, however, I do understand that there are a lot of pop culture book and any books purchased will help out our class earn free book and manipulatives like clocks for the student to learn how to tell time.

Green Folders
Each Friday your child will bring home a lot of work in their green folders. Make sure to take the time to go through the folders and empty them out before returning them after the weekend.

Week 1

Our first full week of school was full of many firsts!


  • First chance for some to have a classroom job (these rotate daily so your child will have a chance to do each job several times throughout the year)
  • First time to experience all 4 "Specials" classes: Latin, Music, Art, and P.E.
  • First fire-drill for full day students
  • First Early Release Wednesday (Please use this term at home.  It helps eliminate confusion between full-day and half-day to instead say that we all have early release on Wednesdays.

I'm sure there have been many firsts in your household, as well, and I hope this included some great stories from your little one about friends, classwork, and trials and errors.
