Get out your calendar!

Dear Parents;

We have a lot going on over the next few weeks, so I thought I would send you a list of upcoming events for you to put into your calendar, so you and your child don’t miss any of the great things happening in KG2.

  • Attendance: If you are late, you no longer need to go to reception for a blue slip, just bring your child directly to the classroom. I do ask that you try your best to be on time as I will have to stop my instruction to enter your child into the computer.
  • I have completed all of my reading assessments. I am working on making my guided reading groups. We should be ready next week. I will be sending home a letter at that time to help you understand more about how this works. The most important thing for you to remember is that all children are different. You need to be proud of your child where they are reading and not be comparing them with others. If you have any questions or concerns about their particular level, please come to me directly.
  • No School Sunday, February 24th.
  • Sports Day Wednesday, February 27th 12:30-3:00. Your child should wear a red t-shirt or their uniform PE shirt, PE shorts, running shoes, a hat and have their water bottle. We will be out on the field participating in lots of fun games. You are welcome to come and watch!! Don’t forget your camera!
  • Sunday, March 3rd 2:15. Parents and popcorn. Come and read a story with your child. All parents are invited!
  • Storybook character parade Thursday, March 7th 8:00 am. Dress as your favorite story book character. You can come and watch if you would like.
  • Student led conferences will be held on March 10 and 11. You will receive information about signing up for you and your child.
  • The 100th Day of school is on March 13th. You will receive a letter tomorrow explaining how they will need to make a collection of 100 things and bring an item for a snack.
  • Mother’s Day performance Thursday, March 21st 8:00 am
  • Spring break begins on Thursday, March 28th (half day). School will resume on Sunday, April 11th.
  • Wow! We’ll be ready for some down time after all this!!
  • Thanks, Lois

Good morning,

I hope you and your family are staying healthy and had a nice weekend. We finished with the MAP testing last week. I will let you know when the results are available for you to look at.  We also finished the sight word assessments. I am really pleased with the progress most of the children have made. Please continue to work on the words missed or the new list that was sent home.

This week I will begin the reading assessment. This will take me awhile as it is done individually and it is a new program for UAS this year. Once I have completed my testing I will let you know what level your child is reading with guidance. After I have all of my data I will begin my guided reading groups which means your child will start bringing a small reading book home most nights. I will send more information home on this when they begin bringing books home.

Please read the newsletter to find out what else is happening in KG2 this week.

Week 14-snrpkw

Have a nice week,  Lois
