First Day of School!

We had a great first day and should all be very tired (at least I am!). We toured the school, met Ms. Mansfield, played on the playground, compared our morning to Miss Bindergarten’s morning (Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready For Kindergarten), and some of us went to music and some to Art. We also made first day hats…but ran out of time for the assembly. They will come home tomorrow!

If your student rides the bus they will have a yellow tag on their backpacks that lets the bus driver know that they must be met by an adult when they get off the bus. Please do not write anything on these.

Thank you to those of you who sent in extra “helping hand” supplies, they are so appreciated.

Music with Miss Harris.
