We only have a couple weeks left until our kindergarten graduation! The graduation will be on June 17, 2009 at 11am. It will be in O’Ryan hall and we will have a small party after the graduation. I have sent home each students’ role in the program last week. Please practice and memorize these with your child. I have also sent home a note asking how many people will be attending the graduation. This will give us a better idea of how much food we will need for the day.

Addition facts:

This week’s addition facts are 1+7=8, 7+1=8, 2+6=8, 6+2=8. The practice sheets that are sent home at the beginning of the week do not need to be turned in. It is for practice at home.

Tuesday: We will be having the sports award on Tuesday morning after the morning assembly. We will be celebrating the students who were involved in a sports team this year.

Wednesday: Wednesday morning at 8:15am will be the volunteer breakfast. This is the teachers’ and students’ chance to thank you for all that you have done for us this year. Please plan on attending.
