Weekly News: April 24-28




The kids did such a great job at the Apex Fun Run! Thank you to all the parents who came to cheer us on! It was so much fun :)  

IT'S TIME! Community Service Projects are due and will be presented NEXT WEEK! There is no turn-in homework this week - please take this opportunity to work on your projects and presentations. Please send projects in any day NEXT WEEK, May 1 - May 5. Please make sure projects are turned in NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, May 5th. Remember that your community service project is a required part of our curriculum at Inland Leaders.  I am looking forward to seeing all of the projects. 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!

Tuesday, May 9: Field trip to the Lewis Family Playhouse Theater

What Are We Learning This Week?:
Sight Words: MOTHER, FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER, FAMILY.

Letter Team:  There are NO new letter teams! For the rest of the year, we will be reviewing all letter teams that we have learned this year. The expectation is that students recognize the letter team within our three second rule, then be able to apply that letter team when decoding an unknown word

Reading: We will read books about frogs as we learn the life cycle of a tadpole.

Writing: We will continue to work on our writing goals, including adding details to our stories. I have been having individual "writing conferences" with the students, where we meet to go over their writing goals and their stories. 

Math: We are working hard on decomposing, composing, addition, and subtraction through many fun math games! Please continue to reinforce these skills at home. 

Leadership: We will continue to ROAR and discuss what it means to have a growth mindset!
