Welcome to Kindergarten
On the 100th day of school February 9th, please send your child to school dressed like a 100 year old. Gray wigs, shawls, pocket books, hats, oversized suits, curlers in hair, powder in hair to give appearance of gray hair, wrinkles, glasses, mustache and anything else you can think of to make them look 100. This is totally voluntary! If your child does not want to come dressed like this, put the stuff in a bag with their name and they can dress here. Sometimes when they see their friends dressed they change their mind. Parent volunteers on that day please feel to dress as well.
Please send in a collection of 100 items. This should fit in a 1 gallon zip lock bag with your child’s name on it. On the 100th day we will sort the collections and put in groups of 5 and 10 to count. In the past we have had matchbox cars, hair bows, buttons, crayons, legos etc... Please no food items.
The Nurse has asked that we remind you to check on the school website HEALTH OFFICE page ( HEALTH CONCERNS TAB) OFTEN for important information regarding general health and wellness updates.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful children with us.
Please continue to read to your child daily and work on letter recognition and letter sounds. Read everywhere you go, signs, park rules, restaurant menus, amusement park maps etc...
Please count everything! We will be counting, working on number identification and matching numbers to objects.
If possible provide your child with opportunities to write. Helping you with Holiday cards, Birthday invitations, Thank you notes, a letter to grandma, and the grocery list are all fun ways to encourage them to write.
Tuesday- Gym(don't forget your sneakers for gym)
Friday-Gym(don't forget to wear your sneakers)
Please bring 1 dry, nutritional snack for the afternoon. Orange slices and yogurt are nutritional, but Kindergartners struggle to manage them and it creates a huge mess. Please save wet snacks for lunch. Snack should have your child’s name on it.
Don't forget the water bottle should have a sports cap in case of spills.
Please no juice for snack. We have a water fountain in the classroom.
Please send in an extra set of clothes for your child. Put them in a zip lock bag with their name, Kindergarten-Johnson written on the bag. This will be stored in the nurse’s office in case of emergency. Sometimes milk gets spilled at lunch and that is a sticky mess to sit in all day. It’s nice to have them on hand if we need them. Thank you so much for your support!
