Weekly Update!

Good Afternoon!

We have been having an awesome week so far in Kindergarten. Our ABC Bootcamp is underway and we have been enjoying doing lots of fun letter-themed activities each day. Students love bringing in a special show & tell each day and are learning so much in the process. :) 

Here are some important announcements for this week:
1) Field Trip Permission slips went home today, this is the YELLOW sheet in the homework folders. Please sign and return all forms to school no later than next Friday Oct. 18th. This is imperative for your child to attend the trip.

2) Chaperone letters went home today as well for the families that signed up to chaperone our trip. The $25 chaperone fee is due back no later than Friday Oct. 18th. If you did not sign up yet but are interested in chaperoning, please reach out to me via Dojo ASAP.

3) Now that the weather is starting to get cooler, please remember to send your child to school in layers each day and send at least a sweatshirt or jacket as we do still go outside each day as long as it isn’t raining. Please, please, please LABEL all sweatshirts, sweaters, and jackets, as we often end up with a large lost & found collection in our classroom if they are not labeled. :) 

4) Tomorrow is our Walk-a-Thon in the morning. 

5) There will be a letter going home tomorrow regarding our upcoming Halloween party & events. 

6) There is no school on Friday & Monday. 

Thank you for your time, have a lovely evening.
Love & Prayers,

Mrs. Tironi

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

We had a great end to our week today. Unfortunately we had many friends who were out sick today so we have rescheduled our “Apple Science Fun Day” to Monday instead.

I wanted to let you all know about some important paperwork that went home today in folders.

1) I am so excited to announce that on Monday we will be beginning our ABC Bootcamp Program. You will see a detailed letter explaining the program along with a calendar of dates. Each day students will be asked to bring in a show & tell from home that begins with the letter of the day. On Monday, students should bring in something that starts with “A”, they can also draw or print out a picture of an object if they truly cannot find one. 

2) October READO boards & reading logs went home today as well. They are not due back until November 1st. Students who sent in their Sept. reading homework received their certificates, prizes, and a coupon for a free Frosty from Wendy’s.

3) School pictures went home today as well. 

4) On Wednesday we will be having our Walk-a-Thon to honor Saint Therese.

5) There is no school on Friday Oct. 11th or Monday Oct. 14th. 

Have a wonderful weekend! It is great being with your awesome children each day.
Love & Prayers,

Mrs. Tironi
