Hi there! I hope everyone enjoyed their last weekend of summer. We have been having fun in Kindergarten.The children are getting to know each other better and have been building wonderful relationships as we work, play, share and cooperate in class. I am very pleased with how well the students are learning our daily class routines, they are having fun and enjoying their time together, which is wonderful to see.

Zoo-phonics- We have been practicising the Zoo-phonics actions,letters\sounds in class. This information was sent home today. Please review the alphabet chart throughout the week with your child. 

Library-On Tuesdays we will be going to the library to borrow a book. Students will bring this book home and can keep it for the week. Library books go home in a ziplock bag and should be returned to school in this bag every Tuesday. Books must be returned in order for students to sign out a new book.

Phys. Ed - We have gym class every Wednesday-Friday. Please wear comfortable clothes to run and play in.

Cafeteria- if your child is ordering lunch, please fill out the menu sheet or write their order on a piece of paper and put it and the money in their agenda.Orders need to be sent to the cafeteria each morning.

We have been learning about ways to stay safe at school,on the playground and bus.We have practiced a school fire drill and will do bus evacuation this week. Please discuss the importance of safety and following the rules at school and on the bus with your child. Thank you. 

Mask- students have been doing a good job with taking care of and wearing their mask. Mask go home daily and should be washed often. When sending mask with your child please put them in a baggie or container with your childs name on it. If your child is missing a mask please contact me at school and we will look for it. 

School Pictures will be on October 2.

Should you have any questions or concerns please contact me at school by email, or phone 627-4074.

We had a lot of fun helping to harvest our school garden by picking tomatoes and green peppers.

We love listening to stories about Pete the Cat. Pete left us clues for us to visit different places at school like the gym, music room, cafeteria, office and library. We had a lot of fun on exploring our school...

We have had a lot of fun getting to know each other. We love playing in the kitchen center, sand box and the little pet shop animals. We love Pete the Cat and really liked playing a dice game and dabbing the numbers we rolled with a bingo dabber.

Water bottles- please continue to return your childs water bottles daily. Students can refill their bottles at the fountain however, due to the new COVID19 protocols students are unable to get a drink from the fountain. 

As we start a new week, both staff and students are getting use to following the arrows on the floor, staying within our class bubble, wearing our mask in hallways, playing in our assigned zones on the playground.Together we are learning to stay safe, so we can stay at school.
