ANNOUNCEMENTS

International Day of Peace: Friday, September 21st 

Friday, September 21 is the International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”).  Peace Day is observed around the world each year on September 21. Established in 1981 by a unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.  To celebrate this wonderful day, Kincaid staff and students are participating in several activities.

 

  • Teachers will be delivering lessons and activities to promote kindness and acceptance.
  • Students and staff are encouraged to wear “Peace” themed clothes to school. Break out your tie-dyes, headbands, bellbottoms etc. to celebrate peace at Kincaid and in our larger world.
  • Rausch will create “Pinwheels for Peace” with all students to display outside on the front lawn.  These pinwheels will be put out on the afternoon of September 20th. You and your student are welcome to view the display on the evening of September 20th or on September 21st.

 

REMINDERS

  • Please make sure you are practicing sight words with your child. A list of sight words for the first 9-weeks was sent home at the beginning of the year.  Please let me know if you need another list.
  • Please continue to practice your child’s address and phone number with them. We have many children who have already learned theirs.  Way to go!
