Our field trip to see Cat in the Hat is this week! If you haven’t already, please make sure you send in your child’s permission slip and money in order for them to attend the field trip.


I sent report cards home today If you did not receive your child’s report card please let me know and I will print off another copy. Sometimes they get lost or the kiddos just forget to bring it home.


Ms. Reed

I sent home a letter explaining what we needed for our Valentine’s Day Party. SO far we have napkins being sent in. If you are able to help out with our party, please send in whatever you can! It would be a huge help to Ms. Minton and I. We are all really excited about this party! WE have fun games and activities planned for the kiddos including a cake walk and cookie decorating. Let me know what you are able to bring in to help with our party. Thanks for all your help and support throughout the year 🙂

Here is the newsletter for this week! I have also sent home a hard copy of our class newsletter. Keep working on sight words please! We are learning so much but still have a lot more to learn! 1.30.17 Newsletter

Also, If your child has not already told you, Ms. Baker no longer works for APA 🙁 She had to find another job that was closer to where she relocated to.

Ms. Minton is very familiar with our classroom routine because she has subbed for us every time that I have been absent. We love having her here and she loves all the kiddos so much!!! If you hear your child talking about a bear, it is something Ms. Minton brought in to share with the class. Her son wrote a book about a special bear that he had when he was a kid that was given as a gift after he lost the father figure in his life. The first person to get on blue for the day gets to hang out with Beary all day! All the kids in room 35 voted for different names and they decided Beary would be the best name for our new friend in the classroom. It is a very good incentive for the kids to come in and go through their morning routine without causing disruptions or fighting with other kids in the classroom.

Kindergarten is full of laughter and play. We learn, we sing, we build. Most of all we build relationships with each other. Thank you for allowing me to keep your kiddos during the day and help them grow in to “big kids”. We are half way through the school year and still have a lot of learning to do!
