Updates for This Week and a Special “Taco”

Good afternoon!

I hope you all are having a safe and blessed Ramadan.

Please note the following:

  1. Homework Bingo has been suspended during Ramadan.
  2. We begin Art next week Sunday.
  3. MAP TESTING! Is coming up next week Monday and Tuesday. We are practicing at school our IPAD stamina. I want the students to be able to focus on the test with only small distractions, so when they are practicing make sure they are hitting the “Listen” button and understanding the questions being asked of them.  I will send out on Wednesday some IXL or Kids A-Z practice you can work on at home alternatively.
  4. Late Pick Up If you are running late during 12:45 pick up, students will be moved to an assigned KG2s classroom. Please try to get to school by 8:00 and have students picked up by 12:45 to beat the rush.
  5. End of Year Scripts for our End of Year Performances have been sent home. Please PRACTICE with your student as we have only 2 more weeks until the special day!

It is Taco Tuesday, and I waited all week to Thank YOU for my Surprise Birthday TACO FIESTA! It was the sweetest surprise I could have possibly gotten. *Taco* very much!

 

 

Best,

TD

HAPPY MONDAY!

GOOD MORNING!

How are you doing? As Ramadan is coming up this week, I wanted to let you all know about the changes that will be happening in KG2.  At this age, most students tend not to fast during Ramadan but as a grade level we are very aware of our colleagues and families who are observing the Holy Month. Please refer to the F.A.Q. for Ramadan!

  • School begins at 8:00 am (bell at 7:50)

  • Please try your best to be on time to pick your child up at the end of the day. With the entire school being dismissed at the same time it is going to be very crowded and hectic.

When will kids eat?

  • We will have one recess and one set eating time
  • Children will have the option to eat again during playtime at the end of the day if they are hungry.

If our kids want to drink water is that allowed?

  • KG2 children will be allowed to drink water outside and, in the classroom, as usual.

  • Swimming is finished. We will have regular PE, some taking place in the classroom. We will begin Art on May 24th.
