Look What’s Happening In Kindergarten!
e had a great first week! I can tell it will be a very exciting year full of fun and learning. Just a few reminders. If money is being sent to school, please make sure it is in an envelope with the child’s name and what the money is for. Also, the temperature in the classroom tends to change, if your child is chilly at rest please remember to sent a small blanket. Please remember these have to be small enough when folderd to fit in your child’s cubbie, along with other things.
If you have not yet sent in a complete change of clothes, please due so this week.
Summer work packets are due no later than this Friday, August 24, 2012.
Apple projects are due this Friday August 24, 2012.
We will be attending Mass this Thursday, so please wear Mass uniforms.
