READ ALOUDS- This week students continued to act out the Three Little Pigs, but the nontraditional versions. Check out some of the versions we read this week. The students are getting better at comparing and contrasting the different stories. Students also colored their own books to take home and reread.
SWIMMING- We are continuing to swim each week on Wednesdays. Your child has learned a great deal of independence this year and we are proud of the way they can undress and redress themselves. Remember swim caps are required by each student. Our focus this week for swimming was kicking. We started with holding on the wall and kicking with straight legs. Then students who were ready kicked across the pool with a board.
LITERATURE BAGS- Your child brought home their Literature Bag for the last time this week. Since Ramadan begins next week, our work hours are reduced and our TA’s will not have time to prepare the bags each week. We hope you have enjoyed them!
FREE FLOW SUNDAYS- Please remember to have your child wear their ORANGE t-shirts each Sunday.
PARENT WORKSHOP- For those of you who replied to our Parent Workshop survey- Thank you! We look forward to seeing you next Tuesday, May 15 in the Elementary Library. We will serve coffee at 7:30 in Elementary Library foyer on the top floor and will begin by 7:45.
NO SCHOOL ON SUNDAY! There is a school holiday on Sunday, May 13.
RAMADAN- Timings for KG1 actually does not change. Our day will begin at 8:00 and end at 12:45, as normal. If you bring your child to school, you will still drop them at the playground as we will play there for a while since it’s cooler in the mornings. Pickup is still 12:45 and buses will leave at 1:15. You may want to talk to your bus rider about lots of kids being on the bus (elementary, middle and high school), as they are used to only PK and KG1 together.
TEACHER APPRECIATION- For those of you who sent in food for our Teacher Appreciation lunch on Wednesday, thank you so much! We all had a very yummy lunch!
