Friday Update

Students had a great week this week!

We learned about neighborhoods and where we live. We also finished learning how to write our numbers 1-5. Today, we started learning about spiders! Students had some fun spider stories to share!

With the cold weather coming up, students will be bringing in jackets/sweatshirts. If possible, please have jackets/sweatshirts labeled with their name on the tag. We would also appreciate it if work with your child so they can learn how to independently put their jackets/sweatshirts on and off.

Thank you for your continued support at home. Have a wonderful weekend!
