Tuesday, August 10th

Thank you for attending Parent Night last night! If you were unable to attend Parent Night either in person or via WebEx, click the link to see the presentation. Kindergarten Parent Night 2021 Please know this is only a small glimpse of what was discussed last night. I sent the handouts in your child’s daily folder today. Please complete the class directory slip and return tomorrow. There is a note regarding Scholastic News, we will use this to supplement instruction this year. Please keep the handwriting sheet to use when helping your child write letters with correct formation. 

I hope you found the information to be valuable. As I said it would happen, I thought of a few things I forgot to mention during Parent Night:

Sleeping Habits - It is imperative that your child have enough sleep each night to be able to successfully make it through our school day. It is recommended that school age children get between 10-12 hours of sleep each night. That means if your child wakes up at 6:30, they need to be in bed no later than 7:30-8:00 with lights out and no TV/devices. The best way to address undesirable behavior is getting more sleep. 

Mask and Lanyards- Your child’s mask needs to be attached to a lanyard each day. Students take masks off for lunch, snack, recess, P.E. and rest time. Students without lanyards  for their masks are sitting them down on the table/floor, putting them on their wrist then dropping them, losing/leaving them. If your child’s mask is on a lanyard it makes it much simpler when taking masks off and putting them back on. Please show your child how to turn the lanyard around while they are eating so their food doesn’t fall into their masks.

Deadline for Letter Expert pictures: I wanted to clarify the deadline for emailing the Letter Expert assignment. When you receive the Letter Expert assignment paper, it says to email me the picture the day before your child presents to the class. I need to be more specific. I need the picture by noon the day before your child is scheduled to present. 

In the folder today, you will see your child’s math paper. You will notice we were unable to complete the last sheet of our math papers today. As I said last night, this is not  “homework” that has to be completed and brought back to school. However, several students had a difficult time writing the number 2. You will notice I wrote 2 with yellow highlighter on your child’s paper. Having your child practice the sheet we did not finish would be beneficial for one on one assistance with writing the number 2. Thank you for your help! :)
