Only 16 days left! Ahhh! Where did this time go! We are in the closing weeks!

Character Education – Cooperation

As one of our last Character Ed lessons, Alison Jones came in with a memorable day for these kiddos! She read them a book about cooperation and then let them work in small cooperation groups! This is a fantastic skill for students to work on especially with a difficult task. Letting them struggle within a group can be a fantastic challenge and perfect opportunity to learn to really practice cooperation. Each student had a role and worked to share the responsibilities which again can be a struggle (Some kids want to dominate the group and others prefer to take more of an observation role…giving each child job helps to get away from this.)

Each group was to given a special job all in preparation to build a rocket ship. Then each group got a chance to launch their balloons! They seriously had a blast and got so excited and full of giddiness!

Each rocket was released by letting the air out of the ballon and letting it spiral down the string line!

Scholastic Book Order

Don’t forget to turn in the last scholastic Book Order by 5/24/17.Coupons for a free book were placed in folders this past Tuesday. Let me know if you missed it.

Scholastic Book Fair

Don’t forget next week is the Spring Scholastic Book Fair! There is BOGO deal as well! On Monday there will be Rita’s samples after school to kick off the book fair! The book fair is open before and after school!

Jog-A-Thon Pajama Day

As a whole-school celebration, all students will be wearing PJ bottoms and their Jog-A-Thon Tees on Tuesday May 23rd! Don’t forget yours! (remind your friends to check in who don’t read the blog so they don’t miss out!)

Wear this pink shirt on Tuesday!

Shoe Drive Update!

Its almost time for the Shoe Drive to come to a close. We had some friends who didn’t get to participate because we ran out of sizes so I got a few more from my friend! If you still wish to get in on this, come stop by and get a size and name to purchase for! All shoes are due back on May 31st! Thank you so much!

Book Drive Update

We have so many books coming in! Hooray! Thank you so much! Check out how many books we have as of Friday! Book collecting will stop on May 31st as well! Thank you for sharing your books and lots of love with these children!

Zoo Info

This week more detailed info will be going home in folders regarding our zoo trip! Keep your eyes peeled! Some basic information:

  • disposable lunch
  • no snack
  • comfortable walking shoes
  • wear your pink Jog-A-Thon shirt!
  • Arrive at 8:30, Return time 3:00 (approximately)

Fall 2017 – Kindergarten!!

  • Playdates – Check out information going out from the school regarding Kinder Summer Playdates! Each year 1-2 parents plan a few summer playdates at park! This is a time for all TK’s and K’s coming in the fall! Its a fun way to meet new faces you’ll be entering the gates with each day! If you are able to make these, they are lot of fun and there are many new friends to be made!
  • Back to School Night – This year the TK/K Back-To-School Night will occur on a new night! TK/K will be having a parent only Back to School night the night before New Student Orientation. This will be a chance for parent’s to get the scoop on the school year and find out all to be expected before school even starts. The following day will be New Student Orientation. There will be no other Back to School Night
  • Orientation – You likely attended this last year on the Friday before school started. This will mostly be the same. The entire school will come to hear the MPR presentation and then students will go to classrooms. The main difference will be that the focus of the classroom time will be to visit/view classrooms and meet/greet with their new teacher! It will be more like Open House, without all the work to show around the room. I hope to see you there!
