What a great last day!

We had a fun last day of kindergarten today. We listened to Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin! to go along with our letter Z today, played games, practiced math, and met our teachers for next year! Dr. Murray even came to our room to tell us all about Pequea’s Summer Sizzle, and how we can participate in the Sizzle Palooza in the fall!

We had a great year in kindergarten, learning and growing and learning together. I cannot wait to see the students continue to grow in the coming years. 🙂

Now….you might be wondering about the Summer Bridge Activity book your student brought home today. That is their ticket for Sizzle Palooza! Here is everything you need to know:

We are super excited to roll out the Pequea Summer Sizzle to help our students retain their learning and growth they made throughout this year. We are challenging students to participate in the Summer Sizzle….

Steps:

  • Each student in grades K-5 have been given a Summer Bridge Activity book. Write your name inside it, please!
  • Take a little time each day to complete the learning activities and prevent the slide!
  • Bring your book back to school in August with you and all those who have completed their book thoroughly will participate in the Pequea Sizzle Palooza!

Sizzle Palooza = a fun celebration of learning successes including games, treats, and surprises to be held during the school day!

Additionally, we are hosting Summer Sizzle Family Learning Events which will be held over the course of five evenings from 6:00 – 7:30 PM at Pequea Elementary. These evenings are for those 2022-2023 grades K-6 students and their family members. This is not a drop off event but instead an event for an adult (18+ years of age) to accompany and participate in literacy, mathematics, and social/emotional learning activities with a fun theme for each event.

Pequea’s Summer Sizzle Learning Events will be held:

  • Wednesday, July 13th, 6:00 – 7:30 PM
  • Wednesday, July 20th, 6:00 – 7:30 PM
  • Wednesday, July 27th, 6:00 – 7:30 PM
  • Wednesday, August 3rd, 6:00 – 7:30 PM
  • Wednesday, August 10th, 6:00 – 7:30 PM

Wow! It is hard to believe that next week will be our last week in kindergarten! We had a great week this week learning about animals, habitats, how we can take care of our environment in our community, building and taking apart teen numbers, and reading and writing words with letter blends. We are learning how to identify fiction and non-fiction stories, and we are getting better at identifying the settings and problems in stories.

Next week is our final week in kindergarten!
If your student has not yet returned their library book, please do so ASAP.
Thursday is the last day for kindergarten students.

Next Week:
Monday – No School – Memorial Day
Tuesday – Letter X – Xtra Day!
Wednesday – Letter Y – All About You!
Thursday – Letter Z – Last day of Kindergarten, we will be zooming to 1st grade!
Friday – No School for kindergarten students
