The 100th Day of School is Coming!

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been in school for almost 100 days already. On Tuesday, February 7th our class will be celebrating the 100th day of school! In case of inclement weather, I will let you know if the date changes.

Our celebrations will include:
*Counting to 100
*Sitting quietly for 100 seconds
*Doing 100 exercises
*Reading books about the number 100
*Playing a math game to race to the number 100
*…and so much more!!!

I would like each child to make a t-shirt (at home) with 100 items on it. These items can be anything from pins attached to the t-shirt, drawings on the t-shirt, to items glued or sewn on the t-shirt.  Be creative!  I’ve seen some awesome shirts over the years!  This gives you a great opportunity to work one-on-one with your child to complete a fun activity.  It is much more beneficial if your child participates in helping to make the shirt rather than you making the shirt for your child.  Try having your child count out 10 groups of 10 items to get to 100!  Your child should wear their completed t-shirt to school for our 100th-day celebration!  Please encourage your child not to tell his or her friends about their t-shirt…let it be a surprise! I can’t wait to see all of the fun creations!

1/27 Early Dismissal AM-K 9-1:30, PM-K No School

An early dismissal day is fast approaching! AM Kindergartners will have school on Friday from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm. (Please Note: Student Arrival begins at 8:45 if being dropped off and dismissal begins at 1:25 if being picked up.)  This also means that PM Kindergarten students will NOT have school.

Your child will ride the bus to school in the morning and home from school at dismissal. If you plan to pick your child up from school, please be sure to send me an email, send a note to the school, or fill out the pick-up form on the website so we are aware of the change. Students are dropped off and picked up from the side of the building on early dismissal days. Kindergartners will eat lunch at school.  Lunch costs $2.35.  If your child would like to pack a lunch and buy milk, the cost is $.60 for milk.  Below are the choices for lunch.  

A lunch: Brunch for Lunch (French Toast & Sausage)
C lunch: Peanut Butter and Jelly
D lunch: Yogurt and String Cheese
All lunch choices also come with the following: Assorted Fruits, Juice, Veggies, Choice of Milk
