Specials Night

Ms. Harris is looking for Kindergarten and 1st Grade students who are interested in performing on March 7th at 6:45 PM for Specials Night. If your child is interested in taking part in the performance please fill out the survey below. Because the performance space is small, Ms. Harris will only be able to take a limited number of students. Performance spots will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. No after school rehearsals are required because students are learning the music during specials time.

 

You will receive a confirmation email with more details. If Ms. Harris is not able to place your student in the performance, your child will be placed on a waiting list. Please note, that filling out this survey does not guarantee your child a spot in the performance.

100 day celebration!

Our day started with a parade around the Kindergarten hall so that we could see all of our friends 100 day shirts. Then we came back to the classroom to hunt for 100 chocolate kisses and match the correct number on our number chart until they were all found. We made 100 day hats and sorted snacks- 10 groups of 10 items! Students got to see their 100 year old selves (thanks to an aging app) and write about what they thought they would be doing- a lot of chair sitting! In the afternoon we had math station rotations: sorting and counting a variety of items, building with 100 cups and leggos, and a graphing activity. Thank you all for participating with their 100 day shirts (and necklace) they were all so different and creative and the students were so proud to share them.

 

Fire safety Officer Michelle visited Kindergarten and showed off her fire fighting gear so that students would know not to be afraid of it in the case of emergency. She also gave them fire safety tips and I hope that you had a chance to read the information that came home on the bookmark.

 

Our latest student chosen as representing the IB learner profile of the month- this month was “balanced”.

Welcome back! I look forward to seeing everyone at school tomorrow!

Class information:

I posted a lot of information on my last post so I hope that you will take a minute to review if you have not yet seen it (there are also a lot of cute holiday pictures!
  • Class Dojo: I always begin using class dojo after Christmas to keep you informed about your students behavior. Students receive or loose points based on behavior: on task, respect, listening, treating teachers and classmates with respect: these are all expected kindergarten behavior at this point in the year. You will receive an invitation letter in the home folder on Monday. I will share this with students tomorrow but not begin until Tuesday. The biggest way that you can help your child is to let them know that you are aware of their behavior at school and discuss it (especially positive!). I  don’t expect students to have perfect days but multiple times of loosing points would be a concern. You can also message me directly through the app if you have any concerns or want more information.
  • If you are able, please send in a multipack a of glue sticks so that we can replenish our supplies.
  • See tab at the top of the page for information about our 100 day celebration and the t shirt. (We will celebrate on January 16-the 99 day- do to scheduling conflicts)
