Spoons!

Unfortunately my supply of extra spoons is essentially used up already.  Please be sure to pack spoons for your children if they are going to need one.  I can’t guarantee that I will have one for them if they need one.

Also, if you happen to have some extra plastic spoons laying around the house and you would be willing to donate them to our classroom, that would be very much appreciated!

Memory Verse -due November 25

Thank you to those of you who have been working with your children on their Bible Memory Verse this past week.  We noticed a significant improvement in the number of students who could recite their verse.

Daily practice, for as little as 5 minutes a day can make all the difference.

Our next verse is:

Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
and he will establish your plans.

Proverbs 16:3

Zones of Regulation Information

Hi Parents!

Here is some great information about the Zones of Regulation program we are using at school.  Your child may be coming home talking about colors and zones and you might like to be able to participate in conversation with them about it. Take a look if you are interested!

Memory Verse Re-do

Because less than 1/4 of the class was able to confidently recite their memory verse today, we will try this one again.  Students will have until next Tuesday, November 12 to recite the following verse:

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Philippians 4:13

Learning these memory verses is really the only homework your child has at this point.  Students will continue to be given memory verses as they move up the grades, and they get increasingly lengthy.  It shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes a day to go over Kindergarten verses with your child.  Please take the time to invest in this with them.

November theme- Community

During the month of November we will be focusing on the theme of community.  We will learning about our classroom community, our school community and our community of Chilliwack.  We would like to learn about some different jobs that people have in our community and that is where you come in.  I would love to have some parents come in sometime during the last 2 weeks of November to talk to us about their jobs in our community.  Would you consider coming in and telling us about what you do?  If you think this is something you would be interested in please email me at dlarsson@highroadacademy.com so we can start planning for your visit.  This visit can be as lowkey as you like and doesn’t need to involve a lot of planning on your part.  If you are interested, please let me know as soon as possible so we can work on scheduling you in.

Family Fridays!

Starting on Friday, November 8 we would like to invite you to stay after the bell rings in the morning for Family Friday!  We will have a short time of reading together with you, our drop-off people, to start our day (approximately 15 minutes).  We hope that you can join us.  Unless you hear otherwise, you can anticipate every Friday being Family Friday, starting on November 8th.  I know some of you don’t have the ability to stay and so I would ask that we welcome children into our reading groups with open arms.  Thank you so much!

Parent Teacher Interview Day Information

I wanted to make sure to connect with you about the upcoming Parent Teacher Interview day on November 1.

 

This is essentially a more formal version of our September parent night where you have the opportunity to connect with your child’s teachers in regard to your student’s progress so far this year.

 

This Parent/Teacher Interview day replaces our report cards which were traditionally sent out at the beginning of December. As happened last year, students will not receive a report card until the end of January. Therefore, the parent teacher interview will be an important day to discuss progress, celebrate growth and consider goals for your child. We would love to see all our parents on this day!

 

On November 1, the school will be open from 10-4 for interviews. Here is some information on how this day will work:

1- Please email me to request a specific appointment time or use the sign-up sheet available near the door of our classroom to sign up for a time slot.

2 – Check in at the school foyer to get headed in the right direction! There will also be free coffee, treats, and school store items available for purchase.

3- Proceed to the room of the teacher you’d like to chat with about your child. Interviews are 15 minutes.
