Letter of the Week: Cc
Morning Prayer: The Morning Offering
This past week we continued to work on classroom routines, letter recognition, numbers, shapes and color recognition. We are learning how to read our color words too.
Lunch & Milk Count:
To expedite the lunch and milk count process please fill out the lunch/milk slip sent home every week. You may also come into the classroom and fill out the lunch/milk form. Just fill out Yes or No on the lunch/milk slip or circle the days on the form in the classroom.
Supplies& Drop Off:
Kindergarteners must bring a backpack and snack to school everyday. Also, children arriving before 7:50 need to go to the cafeteria and wait for the bell before coming to the classroom. When they arrive in the classroom the children 1) turn their name tag around, 2) put their folder and any communications in the green tray, and 3) hang up their backpacks. Then the children may go to centers or begin morning seat work.
Occasionally there will be juice or snacks for purchase (.25-$1). These are offered somewhat randomly throughout the year. To make things easier for parents, we are willing to keep a baggie of loose change for your child here in our classroom. Just bring in some loose change and we will put it in a baggie with your child’s name on it. Then, when there is a snack sale they can decide if they want to purchase anything.
Lunch with Mercy:
We are selling raffle tickets for “Lunch with Mercy”. Tickets are .25 each and are sold at lunchtime. Proceeds will go to the SPCA.
