May 14th-17th

This week in KG-1

This week we read many stories about The Little Red Hen. We looked for similarities and differences in each version we read.

Ms Lamya Read the story to us in Arabic

We colored and shared Little Red Hen books with our friends and brought them home in our folders on Thursday.

We took the principle about helping each other  from the story of The Little Red Hen and used it as we made Butter.

Swimming

Next week in KG-1

We will be reading many stories and versions of the Three Little Pigs. We have our first 12 students presenting their stories to the class.

Reminders

RAMADAN KAREEM! Ramadan Schedule began today. Just a reminder that our morning schedule for KG1 has changed slightly. Students may not be dropped off before 7:30, as there is no supervision until that time. We will be staying on the playground each morning until 8:25since the weather is cooler then. YOUR CHILD SHOULD BRING THEIR WATER BOTTLE TO THE PLAYGROUND WHEN THEY ARRIVE AT SCHOOL EACH DAY. There is no need for you to wait for the whistle to blow, and we will do our attendance after 8:25.

Dismissal/pickup is normal 12:45 time for KG1. Lastly, if your child rides the school bus, remind them that they will be riding a full bus of ALL ages PK-Grade 12.
Also, in KG1 we continue to drink water and have our 2 regular snacks, so please send in as normal.
 
How We Express Ourselves- Our performances begin next week! We hope that your child has been planning, preparing and practicing for their presentations of re-telling a favorite story. Any props, costumes, books, puppets, etc. should be placed in a bag and sent in the morning of their performance. We will video each performance and send to you via blog or email link. PARENTS DO NOT NEED TO ATTEND, AS WE WILL VIDEO FOR YOU- THANKS!
 
FREE FLOW SUNDAYS- We are continuing our Free Flow each Sunday, so please send your child to school in their PURPLE shirt. 
 
SWIMMING- We will continue to swim each week, until otherwise notified. Your child should wear their swimsuit to school, under their school uniform. We unfortunately do not have the time to dress them before swimming. After swimming, they are expected to put their school uniform back on (per school guidelines), and please wear or send regular velcro sneakers as flip flops and sandals are more likely to make them fall on the playground. 
 
PARENT WORKSHOP- Thank you to all the parents who attended our first KG1 Parent Workshop on Tuesday! This was our first time using this format, and we hope to be able to offer these next year on a more regular basis. We will be sending the links to some of the presentations to you via email.
