Look What’s Happening In Kindergarten
Our field trip is quickly approaching! Please check the Wednesday folder for important information regarding the day of the trip, November 25.
Please remember to practice sight words every night. This is a very important skill when learning to read. Reading along with your child is also a great way to practice sight words.
Remember that there is no all school Mass this week.
Here’s what’s happening in the classroom this week.
