Look What’s Happening In Kindergarten
I enjoyed meeting with you all at conferences on Friday. Thank you for taking time out of your day to meet with me. I know, together, we can help your child grow and develop and achieve at their highest potential. Don’t forget it’s Red Ribbon Week and there are quite a few special things happening. On Monday, students can wear their favorite team jersey/shirt with jeans and white PE shoes.
We are in need of drivers for our field trip on November 25th. Without drivers we will not be ite able to go.
We are also in need of parent volunteers to assist with our Fall Party this Friday, 10/25, from 1:30-3:00. Please let me know if you are able to help. Thank You!!!
