Graduation June 10th



Good Afternoon,

I cannot believe we just finished our very last day of Kindergarten! :( :( It was such a busy week and day that it just flew by before our eyes. This class is ready to put on an AMAZING graduation performance for you all on Monday.

Please remember that Monday is NOT a regular school day for Kdg, they will be dropped off in our classroom at 9:30 am and will go home after our reception (around noon).

Here is all the information for Monday’s big ceremony:

1) Students are asked to come to school on Monday dressed in their “Sunday Best”, similar to our Spring music concert. It does get hot in the gym and students will be dancing, so please dress accordingly.

2) Please drop off students directly to our classroom between 9:30-9:45 am. Mrs. Nowel will be in our classroom to greet them. After you drop them off, you may proceed to the gym to find your seats. Please do not arrive earlier than 9:30 am.

3) All graduation donations are asked to be dropped off between 7:30 and 9:30 am on Monday morning.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I am looking forward to celebrating your amazing children with you all on Monday.

Have a fantastic weekend!
Love & Prayers,
Mrs. Tironi

Week of June 3rd (Our last week of Kindergarten!)



Good Afternoon & Happy June!


There is a lot of information to share about our week ahead, so please bear with me.


1) I have been informed by a few families that there are still field day t-shirts that
went home with the wrong students on Friday and unfortunately were not returned
today. I am asking everyone to please CHECK the labels of the shirt you have at home
and send it in to school tomorrow if it does not have your child’s name on it. The ones we
are missing were labeled with names so you should be able to see if it belongs to your
child or not. We will double check all t-shirts on Wednesday morning when the children
wear them to school and will hopefully get them sorted out right away.


2) Tomorrow is a school-wide TAG day as a fundraiser for 8th grade, unfortunately I
was not made aware of this TAG day in advance and the theme is still the same as our
day today, Patriotic colors. Students may dress down in red, white, and blue again
tomorrow but they are asked to please bring the $1 donation to dress down.


3) Field Day is on Wednesday, as well as our class Water Day in the afternoon. A letter
will be sent home tomorrow with some important reminders of what students should
bring/wear to school on Wednesday. Please keep an eye out for this in their folders
tomorrow, I will post it to Dojo tomorrow afternoon as well just in case.


4) Our last group of spelling words and spelling homework went home today, we will take
our last test on Friday.


5) Here is our Graduation Sign-up link for donations for our reception, thank you so
much to all who have signed up thus far. Please drop off/send in any non-perishable
donations by this Friday and any perishable items on Monday morning from 7:30-9:30 am.


6) A full Kdg Graduation reminder will be sent home on Friday, but just to make you
all aware that Kindergarten students are asked to be dropped off to school on Monday
morning at 9:30 am in the learning center. Mrs. Nowel will be in the classroom to meet
with them so you may drop them off and then proceed to the gymnasium to find your
seats. Our ceremony begins at 10:00 am followed by a slideshow until approximately
10:45 am. We will have a light reception for everyone to enjoy from 10:45-11:45 am and
then students will go home with their families at the conclusion of our event. This is
their last day of school and they are officially done for the summer!


7) Kindergarten report cards will be mailed home to you by the end of next week.


Thank you for your time, please contact me should you have any further questions.
Love & Prayers,

Mrs. Tironi

Week of May 28th





Good Afternoon!

I hope everyone had a fantastic long weekend. I cannot believe we only have 10 more school days of Kindergarten left! Time is flying by : (

Tomorrow is our field trip to Waterloo Village, all students MUST bring a brown-bagged lunch labeled with their names, please do not forget to pack snacks & a water bottle as well. Students are to wear their gym uniforms (sneakers, shorts & sweatshirt). We are asking chaperones to not arrive earlier than 8:45 am please, as the buses will not be picking us up until 9:00 am.

Field Day t-shirts MUST be in by Thursday. If you ordered an STS field day shirt, we have them here in the classroom. However each child needs to have a LABELED gallon ziplock bag and 6 rubber bands. Please send this in by Thursday, as that is when we are tie dying during gym class.

Due to the short and busy week, there are no new spelling words or popcorn words this week. We will finish up our spelling and reading curriculum next week.

Thank you for your time, have a wonderful day!
Sincerely,
Mrs. Tironi

Week of May 6th






Good Afternoon & Happy Wednesday,
I hope everyone is having a great week so far. We have been VERY busy
this week with final countdown activities, music concert practice, and all
our year-end concepts. The students have been hard at work! Thank you so
much for all the teacher appreciation cards, stars, letters, and surprises. I
am so blessed to be your child’s teacher. :)


Here is some important info for the rest of this week:


1) This Friday is our next TAG day and this time we are doing something
special and different. Each class has come up with our own themes and we
are competing to see which can be the most creative and has the most
participation. Our Kindergarten theme is based upon the book “The Day the
Crayons Quit” and each of us will be dressing up as a crayon! Each student
was given a specific color that we are asking them to wear on Friday,
preferably if you have a plain t-shirt of that color that would be great but
if not that is perfectly fine as well. I have made props for each student that
will be their “wrapper” (a paper necklace/sign) and the “point” (a party hat)
of their color.

A letter went home today in folders telling you which color your child has
been given. Please make sure they wear this color on Friday morning and
brings in $1 donation for the TAG Day. I cannot wait to see our box of
crayons come together! :)


2) This Friday evening is our Spring Music Concert. All students are asked
to arrive to school at 6:45 pm wearing their “Sunday Best”, please note it
does get warm in the gym and on stage. We will be meeting and dismissing in
the 2nd grade classroom, similar to what we did during our Christmas Concert.
The concert begins at 7:00 pm and families are of course invited and
encouraged to attend.


3) Our spelling test is this Friday, focusing on the “ee” words. Please submit
completed homework assignments.


4) Our very last READO board & reading homework went home on Monday.
These are due back on Monday June 3rd.


Here are this week’s concepts/themes:
1) Reading/Language Arts/ Phonics:
-Letters- Digraph “wh” Spelling Patterns “ee”

-Color Word- review all learned
-Writing Skill: Sentence Building, Independent Writing Skills

-Intro to Subtraction
3) Religion-

Good Afternoon & Happy Monday!

Firstly I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for throwing
me an absolutely AMAZING surprise Baby Shower today! Baby Tironi & I
are so incredibly blessed and words cannot express how grateful I truly am
for all your kindness, generosity, and blessings. Thank you all so much and a
special thank you to all the wonderful moms that came today to help make
everything so incredible, Mrs. Landis, Mrs. Dubas, Mrs. Walsh & Mrs.
Backer. <3 :)


IMPORTANT UPDATE:
Tomorrow is our Easter Picnic & Egg Hunt Celebration. Please have your
children bring in their Easter Baskets tomorrow labeled with their names
on it. Our Picnic will begin in the gym in the big school at 11:40 am, all
siblings (including other STS students) are welcome to come and eat with
us for our picnic if they would like to. After our picnic, older siblings will
return to their classes and we will have our egg hunt outside our building
around 12:30 pm.



Also, please note that due to our schedule and shorten week  we will not
be having a spelling test this week or adding new popcorn words. We will
be spending the week reviewing and doing many Easter themed math/
literacy activities.
