    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:

    Good Time Tickets - Children who exhibit behavior above and beyond the expected behavior can earn Good Time Tickets. They save these to trade in for special activities. For example, if they save 5 tickets, they get to have a flashlight and books during rest time. If they save 30 tickets, they get to eat lunch with me on the stage. (There are several other levels in between these.) The children love to receive Good Time Tickets and I love to pass them out to the children!

    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.

    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 5:00 the day before your child is scheduled to present.

    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.

    Thank you for sticking with me through a long Parent Night! I appreciate your time!
