Monday, August 22nd 

Throughout the past few weeks we have focused on getting to know each other and learning our rules and procedures.  We go over our rules each day to help us continue to learn procedures and expectations.  We have made numerous posters that will serve as reminders for our expectations and goals.  Having structure and organization in a classroom is essential for a positive, productive learning environment. We have also discussed the importance of doing our best with all our work.  You can help your child by encouraging him/her to follow our classroom rules and by giving simple directions to follow independently at home.

Last week, our kindergarten students had our library orientation lesson.  We learned our way around the library.  Soon, we will return to the library and have a lesson on how to take care of library books. Hopefully your child’s first school library book will come home soon! 

I want to give a big THANKS to Mrs. Yeske! She took all of the information provided by families on the classroom directory slips and created our awesome classroom directory. Use the directory to send birthday invitations or to schedule play dates. Thanks again, Mrs. Yeske!

Class Shirts: Remember to order our class shirt using this link: Class Shirts Our class is ordering the Blue Sapphire shirt.

Lunchroom Food:  The lunch menu is available on Columbia’s website so you can talk to your child about what is being served daily. If you know the food options are something your child does not like, please consider sending a lunchbox. There was a menu change this week due to supply issues. On Tuesday, we’ll have Breaded Steak Sandwich. On Thursday, we’ll have Taco Salad.
