I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a happy new year! I am so proud at how much independence the boys and girls are showing as we enter the second half of Kindergarten! We have had so much fun learning about the lifestyles and habitats of penguins, polar bears, walruses and so many more during our Arctic animals unit.

We have been very busy in October! Some fun things we have been doing in Kindergarten are writing in our daily journals, learning about nocturnal animals, saying the rosary every Tuesday with our entire hallway, and continue to practice reading our decodables and go over the new October sight words. If you have not yet signed up for our class Seesaw page, please let me know if you need that information.

Our Halloween Party will be on Friday, October 29th. Students are allowed to bring in prepackaged treats for the class if they would like to. We have 23 students. Please only label the treats with who they are from. We will not eat any of the treats during school day.

When planning costumes, please keep in mind no masks, face paint, or weapons. The costumes must be easy enough to come off when we use the washrooms. Please wear gym shoes as we do have gym on Fridays.

Kindergarten is off to a great start! We had a wonderful first few weeks of school. The students are making new friends and learning our new routine. I am enjoying getting to know your children. They are such a delight to have in the classroom. I hope you all enjoy your long weekend with family and friends!

Be sure to check your child’s home folder each night. Please label any items that are sent to school. Please make sure to sign up for our classroom Seesaw page! White envelopes should be returned the following school day and library books are due on Thursdays!
