Look What’s Happening In Kindergarten
The students have been doing a great job and working so very hard to complete the Sounds Reading Club reading program. They are super excited because this is the last week. Please complete and turn in your child’s reading log on Friday. In the next week, there will be a permission slip sent home for attending the Sounds baseball game on Tuesday April 29, 2014. I am so proud of all the reading accomplishments!
