Tuesday, September 6th

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend! 

Today our school district nurse came to Columbia and did a handwashing lesson. The students learned the importance of washing their hands and about how germs make us sick.  The nurse also showed students the best way to cover a cough or sneeze using their elbows. A letter was sent home in their folder that explains what was taught as well as when to stay home if your child is sick. 

We will continue learning our letters with our Letter Experts this week along with continuing sorting words/pictures based on the beginning sound. We are also working on writing our names with correct formation and orientation to the line. You have probably also noticed our math worksheets where students are learning to write the numerals correctly on the lines.  If you see where I have written the number correctly next to your child’s, please help them with this one on one at home.  

A local church provides snacks for students whose families need assistance. Please reach out to me if your family needs help providing snacks for your child and I will make sure they receive one at snack time. If this does not describe your family's situation, please remember to send a snack daily in your child's backpack. We eat a very early lunch at 10:20 so by snack time, students are usually hungry again.
