Goodbye Kindergarten ๐Ÿ‘‹

Thank you for joining us this morning as we said goodbye and reminisced about fond memories of our time together in kindergarten. Each of you will always hold a special place in my heart! If you’d like to listen to the song again, I’ve included it below. So…can’t stay blue jay. You’re off to first grade! Hope to…see you soon raccoon!

Reminder: Pick Up Tonight

Just a reminder:

From 3-7pm tonight (Tuesday, May 26th), you mayย pick up student belongingsย at school. Please refer toย this postย for additional details.

Important things to remember…ย 

  • Kindergarten pick-up will be in front of the school. Please pull the whole way up near the doors that you pick-up/ drop off. (Please note, the pick-up location is specific to each grade level.)
  • Please have a sign with a childโ€™s first and last name displayed in the front window of the car.  AM-K you may use your parent pick-up sign! ๐Ÿ™‚ 
  • Please stay inside your car and a staff member will hand you the bags.
  • We ask that the person lowering the car window to receive the bags be wearing a mask, as our staff will be wearing masks.           
  • Depending on the traffic behind you at the time, please be mindful that conversations will need to be brief.                                                       
  • Remember that we are smiling behind our masks. ๐Ÿ™‚

Please also use this time if you need to return items (ex. library books or leveled readers) to your teachers or the school.

We’ve Almost Reached the Finish Line ๐Ÿ + Meet First Grade Teachers

I can’t believe we’ve almost made it to the finish line! I’m so proud of you for all of the work that you did during this crazy time at home! The support that I’ve received is very much appreciated and will be remembered for a lifetime! Learning takes teamwork and while I would have much rather been in the classroom with your child teaching them, I’m thankful for the wonderful partnerships that have only been made stronger and the team that has been built for your child’s success. Keep fostering your child’s learning and they will continue to be met with great success both now and well into the future!

Next week’s activities are overarching concepts to review. These are concepts that your child should have mastered before heading into first grade. You do not need to submit the activities for my review. You can work on them next week, as well as, during the summer months, if you so desire.

Looking Ahead:
* Look for an email from me that includes a photo collage of your child from the special events that took place in Kindergarten. You will also find out who your child’s first-grade teacher will be in this email.
