Weekly News: May 8-12


We have had so much fun watching our caterpillars get bigger and bigger and fatter and fatter as we learn about their metamorphosis. We think they will be in their chrysalis very soon! 

The kids did a fantastic job sharing their community service projects!  It is wonderful to see the caring and giving our young students are participating in.  Thank you parents for all of your support!!

Our field trip is THIS Tuesday, May 9th! 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. We are looking forward to a fun last kindergarten field trip together! 

We are excited for our very special Mother's Day centers on Friday. We will begin RIGHT AT 11:00 so please plan on arriving by then. The students have some special songs prepared and we have a special story we will be reading together as a class. There will be activities, games, and even a snack! You will be painting with your children, so don't wear anything too fancy! Hope you are able to make it! Please remember to arrange childcare for your little ones so that this can be a very special time between you and your kindergartner :)

Save the Date: We will have a last day of school KINDERGARTEN CLASSROOM CELEBRATION on Wednesday, June 7th at 11:00.  You will not want to miss this! Please mark your calendar and plan on joining us at the end of the day.
