Friday Folders

Last Friday, I did not send home the Friday folders. However, they will be sent home this Friday. Please review the contents of the folder with your child. Ask what he/she has learned. It is difficult for a five year old to focus for the whole day. Paperwork is not always interesting, therefore there might be some incomplete worksheets. At this stage, I am not worried about it. I will let you know throughout the school year if there are any special concerns regarding your child. The folders will need to be returned empty the following Monday.

 

Mat Money

There is a $50 Kindergarten fee that is not included in the tuition. This fee covers the rest time mat and other expenses for the graduation. Please send the envelope marked with your child’s name by Monday, September 21st in his/her folder.

 

Homework

Most days there will be math homework in your child’s folder. If it needs to returned to school the following day, I will leave it on the right side of the folder labeled “Return to school”. There will also be a handwriting practice sheet going home with each new letter we work on. I do prefer that homework be returned the next day but as it is the beginning of the year and homework is a new concept, it is fine to spend as much time as you need to turn in the homework.

 

Back to School Night

This Wednesday, September 17th is our Back to School night. It begins at 6:00pm and there will be two sessions for the parents with more than one child. I look forward to meeting and speaking with all the parents!

 

Schools on Wheels

We are collecting school supplies for Schools on Wheels. Kindergarten is in charge of this service learning project. We will be making announcements in the morning to remind the other students, making and posting up posters, and once all the supplies have been collected we will incorporate the project with a math lesson. We will learn to sort objects.

 

Love,

Ms Kim
