Weekly News: April 17-21

News:

Next Saturday is Earth Day! To celebrate, we will be learning all about recycling and discussing ways to help the Earth. We will also have a special Earth Day Homework this week. Check out the Homework tab for more information. 

The Apex Fun Run is this Thursday.  Whether you have sponsors or not, every student will participate in the run so please have your child wear appropriate clothing and shoes on this day.  Thank you!!  

Our next kindergarten field trip is scheduled for Tuesday, May 9th. We will be going to the Lewis Family Playhouse Theater in Rancho Cucamonga to see "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". We will leave the school by bus first thing in the morning and we will be returning by dismissal. We will be providing snacks for each child, so you will not need to bring a snack (or a folder!) on this day. Because we have already purchased tickets for the show in advance, we unfortunately cannot take any extra parent chaperones. Thank you for your understanding. Permission slips will be coming home soon. We are looking forward to a fun last kindergarten field trip together! 

Save The Date: We will be having a very special Mother's Day celebration on Friday, May 12 from 11:00-12:30. More information to come. I wanted to let you know early in case you need to take the time off work or find childcare for little ones. The school childcare fills up quickly on this day and is on a first come first serve basis.  I encourage you to find childcare for your little ones since this is a special celebration for mommies and their kindergarten student.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.  This is SUCH a special celebration and we hope all of you mommies are able to make it!

The due date for the Community Service Projects has been set for our class: Presentations will be due the week of May 1 - 5. Presentations in the past have included: poster boards, journals, slideshows, books, and pictures documenting your 6-8 hours of community service. Please visit our Community Service tab or email me if you have any questions. Students will be presenting their projects in class Monday through Friday of this week. Please make sure projects are turned in NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, May 5th.  Thank you!
