In This Week’s Post:  Thank You!, Last Day of TK, Running Accomplishments, ST Math,  Dad Spotlight, Happy Father’s Day, Fourth of July, K Summer Playdates, Upcoming Events, The Week Ahead

Thank You

Sweet 206 Families! Thank you for such a great year! These sweet kiddos will always be a part of my class family! I hope to run in to many of them as they grow older and see their sweet smiles! Thank you for my end of year gift! I love all the pictures and memories we have together!

The Last Day of TK

Our last day was full of fun, yummy pizza, otterpops, The Peter Rabbit Movie (thank you Noah Green) and lots of love! We took these pictures the last day! You can take the two photos (first and last day) and put them side by side to see how much they’ve changed! We are hoping you all have a fantastic summer playing, resting, and enjoying summer!

Running Accomplishments

Check out this guy! I’m not sure if you know the story, but he  still had quite a bit of laps to run in order make it to 200 laps with only a 2 week time frame to accomplish it. He upped his game and on the last day of running club, in the last lap, this sweet boy hit 200! This is perseverance at its best! Fantastic job! This is something to be proud of!  #keepontrying

ST Math

Many students have been finishing their ST Mat at EBS! The last day of school, we had our first student to finish! Check her out! That was a lot of hard work and time put in! If you want to continue your ST Math, you are welcome to log in at home and keep on going until the end of summer. Ms. Sloan has even promised to give certificates for those who finish over summer! Applaud this little lady for her effort and hard work! #mathematician

Dad Spotlight

I just had to give this shout out to our resident dad volunteer! He came to volunteer in our class every other Friday morning (switching off with his wife) to help with whatever was needed! He came the whole year through and always with a smile! Its a rarity to have a dad in our room and believe me I know the reasons why…there is not a lot of flexibility to allow them to do this! This sweet family is also moving away from EBS and we will miss them dearly! Thank you Wilson Chen!

Happy Father’s Day

Take this day to say Happy Father’s Day to any fathers in your life. It may be your own father, your husband, your brother, your uncle or some other person that has been there for you or your child in a necessary way! We applaud these people for their love, acceptance and time!!! Cheers! Give them a hug, maybe a phone call, and/or a thank you for all they’ve done! 

Fourth of July

Fourth of July is a big day in Scripps Ranch if you haven’t heard or experienced! There is a race (2 mile Fun Run, 10K, or 50 mile bike ride). This is all followed by a celebration in Hoyt Park! Finally, there is a parade in the center of Old Scripps with floats! Its just a good time and a way to tribute our beautiful country! Each school in Scripps has a float and our school float is lead by no other than our fantastic principal Ms. Sloan (she rocks, doesn’t she…seriously we are so lucky). She is asking for families to join our float/walk and support EBS to show it off as the amazing school it is! If you and/or your family are interested, please contact Ms. Sloan (and or go to the facebook invite:  https://www.facebook.com/events/1154329301338922/  ) and she’ll give you the details on how to be a part of this fun!

K Summer Playdates

Come and join the fun and meet some new friends that will be in Kindergarten as well this year! You’ll get to meet some new friends before the year starts and maybe even see some old friends from this year! Here’s the dates of when to join!

Pamper Day

Check out our EBS Pamper Day! Such a fun time and a way to feel special and get ready for the start of school!

TK Days: June 4th – 8th

In This Week’s Post:   3 Days Left!, Father’s Day, Field Trip, EBS End of Year Assembly, Movie & Pizza Day!, Yearbooks, Summer Reading Program, Art, Star of the Week, Upcoming Events, The Week Ahead

3 DAYS LEFT!!!

We only have 3 days left!! So hard to believe that our year is actually coming to an end! These little sweetie pies will always be my students even when they are someone else’s. I always encourage them to wave hello or show the “I Love You” sign as they pass in their new class lines. Let me say how much I will miss them, but will always love them!

Father’s Day

This past week we had so many adults come in our room to celebrate Father’s Day! Each child had a filled out sheet about their dad along with an art piece of their dad and a special keychain so daddy could take them along wherever they go. The song they sang was posted on Facebook and I have a few photo shots of the game playing! What a day!

Field Trip – SDCDM

Friday we blazed up to Escondido for a fun time at the Discovery Museum. We took a class and learned all about masks. We learned that masks can hide our emotions or express the emotions we want. We spent the rest of the time playing and discovering all the adventurous fun available! Thank you to all our parent chaperones/drivers who assisted us on the trip! Such a fun day!

EBS Assembly

Before we left for our field trip, we began our day with an school-wide assembly. There was an all-girl band, the 5th grade promotion speech along with a quick “floss” dance time! Such a way to kick off summer and say goodbye to a fantastic school year!!

Movie & Pizza Day

Wednesday is our last day. We plan to watch a movie and eat pizza. If your child wishes not to eat pizza you are welcome to send something else for them to eat. Just let us know by Monday so we can order the correct amount.

Yearbooks

Yearbooks were delivered on Friday. We will pass them out Monday to the students who ordered one. If you didn’t get a chance to order one, but would like one, they will be selling them on Monday after school. They will be $30 on Monday. The kids are welcome to bring these in their backpacks on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for friends to sign. Enjoy looking at all the photos! Our class page came out great…special thanks to Norma Esquivel (Katherine’s Mom) for choosing all the photos and completing our page layout!

Summer Reading Program

This week you received a summer reading log. Fill it out this summer and your name will go into a drawing for the Fall Bookfair! 

Art

Mrs. Leatherwood and the students made this lovely art entitled, “Wave Goodbye to TK!” How awesome!

8 Days LEFT!!!

Can you believe it! We’ve almost  been through an entire year! These kiddos did awesome! I’m so proud of each of them!

206 Father’s Day Celebration

This week is our Father’s Day celebration in Room 206! We are excited to spend some time with these sweet people who loves us! We know it can be hard to get away. We plan start right after attendance around 8:50 am and will aim to be done by 9:20. We have a little gift for you, a short activity, and a little treat!

Shoe Drive

We are still collecting shoes! If you wanted to part of our last giving opportunity, I have 3 pairs of shoes left that need to be filled. Stop on by and bring a pair for a child! When you shop with your child, take this great opportunity to explain why you are buying the shoes and how fortunate we are to just head to store and buy a new pair when we want to need it. Most of us are fortunate to own many pairs of shoes! #weliveagoodlife  #givetoothers #fillingbuckets

Return All Library Books

ALL Library books are DUE, this Wednesday, June 6th! Please return yours on or before then to avoid being late! A special thanks to Kim Lanz who has consistently joined us all year as a library volunteer (and many other jobs). We appreciate all your help in choosing books for these curious kids and with check-out and getting books off tall shelves!

Summer Reading/Book Bag Return

ALL BOOK BAGS ARE DUE BACK! A large amount of bags were turned back in on Friday! Thank you! If you still have your book bags, please return them on Monday as we are checking off as they come in for a small reward for reading all year and returning the books for future student reading next year!

Field Trip/End of Year Celebration

Our Field Trip is almost here! I will be sending out information to parent drivers/chaperones this week! Due to the following we will plan to arrive at the school at 8:30 to get last minute information and let students use the restroom. This will also let drivers pack in boosters early. We have an all school assembly that day at 8:50. Our plan is leave right after the assembly at 9:30, so here’s the plan:

  • 8:30 – Arrive at the school and come into 206 early (+ attendance)
  • 8:45 – Head up to assembly
  • 9:30 – walk directly to cars (stop by snack area restrooms on our way out)
  • 9:45 – Drive away from EBS
  • 10:10 – Arrive at SDCDM (eat quick snack while teacher checks in class)
  • 10:15 – 10:45 Enjoy SDCDM Class
  • 10:45 Explore the rest of the Museum (break for lunch in between)
  • 11:55 Head out to cars and drive back to EBS

Students will need a separately packed snack in a disposable bag and a lunch in a disposable bag. Gallon sized ziplocs work great for lunch! Thank you all for joining us for this fun day!

Kindergarten Round Up

This Wednesday, we will be having our first Kindergarten Round Up! Dress Western for the occasion! The plan is to have each class rotate through all the other 6 kindergarten classes (as a group) to do a different fun activity for approximately 20 minutes! They will stay together as a 206 class through each rotation. The kids will love this! The additional benefit for our TK class is that they will be able to hang with each Kindergarten teacher and visit each room before next Fall!  #dresswestern

Last Day Movie

On our last day we will be having a Pizza Party in our class and watching a movie! If you have a PG Rated movie that you think the WHOLE class would enjoy, email me or stop by this week with the title or the movie itself! Movies will be sent home on the last day!

HELP WANTED:

This time of year gets crazy! On Tuesday, June 12th we will be taking down much of our room and sending a lot home! If you have an hour to spare, swing by and let me know! We plan to take down much hanging in our room and would love some help to take down, clean out, wipe, label, package to go home before we start our summer! I may have a little prepping for next year as well! Thank you in advance for your time this year to help our students and future students!

Field Trip

As many of you saw in folders, the date of our last field trip has changed from Tuesday, June 12th to Friday, June 8th. A new permission slip went home on Friday. If you had planned on joining us for the special date and are now not able to come, please drop by as soon as possible to let us know.

LAST Scholastic Book Order

Our last book order for the year went home this past week. Check out any deals you may want to order for summer. There are $1 book deals and some favorite to engage your child to read through the summer.

Lock Down Drill

If you were at drop off on Friday morning, you got to experience our Lock Down Drill. Ms. Sloan wanted to make sure that we all got a practice of what to do when being caught off guard. The families and students did awesome! Thank you for being so prompt in coming in. The kids are getting better at it as we all know we need to lock doors, close the blinds, turn off the lights and stay in a quiet huddle. We have also discussed how this might play out differently if you are coming in late, or in transition to another class/room on campus! I’m truly impressed with the understanding and confidence these guys have!

Last Day Lunch

Our last day of school we will be having pizza from Costco for our snack/lunch. If for any reason you do not want your child to take part in this lunch or wish them to bring a lunch, please contact me ASAP. We will be eating inside that day due to 5th Grade Promotion. If you wish to buy from the cafeteria as an alternative to Pizza the only menu options are listed below:

  • Turkey/Swiss sandwich or Sunbutter and jelly sandwich
  • fresh fruit
  • baby carrots and ranch
  • white or chocolate milk

 

Volunteer Tea

We have so many volunteers! Invites were sent home. Please return ASAP if you plan on attending. This is a special time you can come to be thanked and appreciated for all you do for our students and school as whole! There will be some light snack/desserts and drinks. The choir will likely perform with a few songs to enjoy! I will be dropping by during the student’s recess to say hello and grab a couple pictures. We hope you can all make it!

Thank You!

Thank you so much for the lovely week of being loved as your teachers! We both feel so appreciated and special for the kindness and generosity you shared with us this week! We appreciate the book from the students, the beautifully filled canvas totes, the door decor, the flowers, and all the cards, gifts and hugs all week long! Thank you!

Open House

Library Week Postponed

Due to the mini-book fair next week, our library time has been postponed until the following week. You are able to keep your books until May 16th or feel free to turn them in early. I will send out a reminder on Facebook the night before to remind you to return them on the 16th.

Heart Assembly

This past Tuesday, you received a flyer in your child’s folder. We went to an assembly the same day to teach us about Healthy Hearts. Check out the flyer. If you register (online, the app, or flyer) your child can get a free bracelet. This is all to support healthy hearts and living healthy lives.

On May 25th our class/school will be having a jump-a-thon!

Western BBQ

What a great day we had at the Western BBQ! Thank you for all who made it out! The kids expressed at attendance that morning how special it was to have you all come and sit with them at lunch!

Mother’s Day in 206

Our aim is to make our mamas know how special they are to us! We invited all mamas in to be loved on! What a great time we had! The video of the students singing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me!” is posted on our Facebook page! We also watched a great story about a mixed-up Mother’s Day! Then we made a keepsake craft for each mama to take home! In the end we finished our morning with some snacks and fancy drinks for our moms! Thank you all for coming! May you have the best Mother’s Day this year!

May Character Education – Cooperation

Kathleen Nguyen came in to talk about our May Character Education trait of Cooperation. She explained the meaning of the trait and had a discussion with the students to check for understanding. They have a little more background and understanding for this concept as many of them have played on a team or even worked together with a friend or sibling to share or create something. Kathleen had each of them make a piece of a quilt (paper) and we put it together to make a  class Cooperation Quilt!

In This Week’s Post:  Field Trip, World Penguin Assembly, Lock Block/Lock Down, Western BBQ, Mother’s Day, Open House, Mini Book Fair, Scholastic Book Order (last 2 of the year), Art, Star of the Week, Upcoming Events, The Week Ahead

Field Trip

This week we were so fortunate to visit the Sunrise Living Senior Center in Sabre Springs! What a beautiful experience to see these sweet little faces, not only sing, but engage with these residents and bring pure JOY to their faces. They thanked us over and over for coming to visit them. I was so impressed with the students and how kind and open they were to interact and share conversations as well as teach them how to play “Rock, Paper Scissors,” or “Thumb War.” Thank you to all our volunteers who came with us on Tuesday! We had a great day bringing smiles to faces and then enjoying a great day in the park!

World Penguin Day Assembly

On Wednesday our school celebrated World Penguin Day with an Assembly. The choir sang a song, a second grader read a speech about Penguins and the teachers replayed their EBS Finale dance. The kids had a great time!

Lock Down, Lock -Block

This week we discussed and reviewed what to do in the event of a Lock Down. Another Lock Down drill will happen this year and may be at any time of any day so we can practice being prepared in a variety of situations. Students each learned how to close and open the Lock-Block on our doors in the event that they had to lock a door by themselves. We also reviewed to get inside the nearest door and to close the door, windows and lights. They have done great this year in practicing all the different drills to be prepared!

Western BBQ

This next week is our last Western BBQ lunch for the year. RSVP slips went home a couple weeks ago. If you plan on attending, please fill out a slip so they can account for how much food to prepare for families that day. Please make sure you stop by the office prior to coming to pick up your TK student if you plan to head directly up to the lunch area. I will plan to bring the students out a few minutes early to let all who plan on going to the BBQ join up with their students. Look forward to seeing y’all there!

Mother’s Day

Next Friday, May 4th is our 206 Mother’s Day at 9:00 am, we are hoping all our Moms can attend. We love you and can’t wait to celebrate you and how special you are! If you plan on attending, please sign up on the sheet on the whiteboard by the backpacks!

Open House

Thursday, May 10th is our annual EBS Open House. This is a night where families are able to come and look at their child’s classroom and work. You may also visit the Art Show in the auditorium as well as visit other classes. We hope you are able to make it! What to expect: During this evening your 5-year old tour guide will walk you through their class and show you some specific items on the tour guide sheet. It is a true Open House, where you are welcome to come/go and visit our classroom and school. The classrooms will be open for 1 hour and the Art Show is open the entire night. Come on by!

EBS Idol

Hopefully you didn’t miss this show! Every year its a highlighted event of the year to watch all these students perform for the entire audience! Enjoy a few pictures and if you didn’t get to come, make sure you save the date to attend next year! It’s an EBS favorite!

Our own Shreya was on stage and stealing the show! The next picture is our staff after the finale!

Morning Line-Up

This past week we had a small incident in line where one of our class members were hurt before school started in the line area. I spoke with the class and reminded them that all students in all classes should be standing in line. I reminded them that siblings and parents may stand where they would like, but students must wait in line. This is for safety as the students begin playing when they are not in line. They are welcome to sit on their number and play a quiet game with a neighboring friend if they wish.

Thank you in advance for helping us enforce this to keep them safe and ready to come inside for the day.

I am attaching the lyrics to the 2 songs we will be singing to Sunrise Living. Please look up the songs on Amazon Prime Music (free with your Amazon account) and practice these songs with your kiddos. Some students know them very well, but others are still working on the lyrics. Thank you for all your support!

ST Math

As we near the end of our school year, our school has asked that we send home the information to get on ST Math at home. This is a program that our school has available to work on. If you have ever spent time in our computer lab with us or time on our tablets, you’ve likely experienced a snapshot of ST Math. It has no words or directions, but is meant for the students to problem solve when using. We will also send home a support sheet that advises on to use at home. One of the main reasons it hasn’t been sent home with students until now, is that it is designed for the students to use independently without any help. This allows students to struggle through the problem solving process and allows the feedback of results to be authentic in knowing how our students are able to solve independently without support. Be on the look out for a direction and support sheet that will come home with your child.

Generosity Bag Day 2018

This past Sunday, my family and I went downtown to deliver the 100+ bags that were collected last month for our We Have Heart Project in March! To be honest, on the way down, my son was starting to whine to say he wanted to go home to eat since he was hungry. My daughter was sad and mopey as her friend didn’t come with us. I was going through my to do list that accumulated from losing all of Saturday due to a 24hr bug and my husband was going through the week ahead of us as he has a big conference he was consumed with. As we drove down our hearts were excited to deliver these bags of love as its one of our favorite events of the year, but our minds were in other places….DISTRACTION!

As we neared downtown we tried to find our spot from last year near a center that supports the homeless community downtown. The whining stopped, the thoughts of calendars and to-do lists stopped and we began to focus on the community emerging in front of us in the eastern part of downtown. Just a mile or two away from a ball game were these faces that were handling their day.

We drove a circle looking for a central spot and pulled off to the side. As soon as we popped out of the doors some people came up to us as they do every year! Instantly (within 30 seconds) the back hatch of the truck was popped and bags were being pulled out and handed to many smiling and grateful faces.

All the voices spoke out words of, “God bless you! Thank you! We appreciate you! You have a beautiful family!” The feeling of joy, gratefulness and love for others started to spill out as it does every time we do acts of love for others. I truly believe it is one of the main reasons we are created….to love on others! Within 10 minutes every bag was gone, every backpack gone, every snack, and pair of socks gone! We exchanged some kind words with some men at the end that all helped to take our empty boxes to the dumpster. As we climbed back into the car, my daughters voice echoed my thoughts of, “I wish we had brought more!”

 

With this I want to say to you…THANK YOU! Thank you for creating a bag of love to fill a tummy and heart. These hearts were so grateful and our hearts were so full! I will be sending an email out again next March to all my current and former families to take part in this again if you are interested! Thank you so much for your giving hearts!

I’m attaching a couple pictures of our day! Share these with your sweets and remember how full our lives are!
