Uniform Reminders

I have noticed a number of girls wearing leggings under their tunic dresses.  Please remember that leggings are not included in the uniform policy.  I also have noticed a number of girls not wearing navy or black shorts under their tunics.  For modesty’s sake on the playground and while sitting at the carpet, it would be wonderful if the girls could have a little pair of navy or black shorts on under their dresses.

Thanks for your help with this!

If you need to refer to the uniform policy, you can do so here:

Memory Verse due October 22

Please try to squeeze in some practice time at home.  It is very evident to me which students have been working at home on their verses and which ones haven’t.  We don’t have a lot of homework in kindergarten so we should have some time to work on learning these words. Thanks for taking some time to help your child.  Even practicing in the car on the way to and from school would be great!

“So do not fear, for I am with you; … for I am your God.”  Isaiah 43:10

Fall Leaves

This past weekend the fall leaves sure were beautiful!  I hope you all had a chance to go out and enjoy the beautiful sunshine.  Over the next couple of weeks we will be doing some leaf activities.  If you could bring in some fall leaves for these activities, that would be great.  Leaves that are not yet super crunchy would be best.

Thanks!

Smoothies on Friday!

On October 12 the high school is serving us smoothies that they are making themselves!  We are the first class to be blessed with this yummy treat.  Please let me know if your child will not be able to participate in having one. I am told the ingredients in the smoothies will be yogurt, milk and strawberries.  There is no cost for a smoothie.

Scholastic Order due tomorrow

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I pray you have had a wonderful weekend surrounded by loved ones.  I just wanted to send a quick reminder to you that the scholastic book order is due tomorrow.  We were able to acquire some new books for our classroom last month including Robert Munsch’s “We Share Everything” which is all about sharing in kindergarten.

Enjoy your day with your family!  See you tomorrow!

Pumpkin Patch Field Trip Reminders

We will be going to the Chilliwack Corn Maze this Wednesday, rain or shine.  We are praying for sun!

The bus will be leaving the school at 9:10 and we hope to arrive at the corn maze by 9:30.  If you are planning on helping out, please meet us there as promptly as possible as I will have a few students assigned to your care.  You will need to pay upon arrival.

Please have your child dress for the weather.  They do not need to wear their uniforms that day.  As we have had some rain I expect the grounds to be fairly mucky.  Rain boots would be great!  Please send along another pair of shoes for your child to wear when we get back to school.

We will be leaving the corn maze at 11:30 to return to the school.

Memory Verse- due October 11

Now that we have settled into our Kindergarten routines we are going to add learning memory verses to our weekly plans.  Depending on the verse, students will have one and a half to two weeks to learn the verse.  Please practice at home.  We don’t have much “homework” in kindergarten but I do ask that you spend a few minutes each day practicing this verse with your child.  I will be asking students to say the following verse on October 11:

“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God” 1 Thessalonians 5:18a

Parent Volunteers!

Well, now that we are beginning to settle in to a school routine I am looking to have parents come in and help with some different activities during centre time.  We have centre time on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in the afternoon and I would be looking to have someone come in and help occasionally from 2 pm until the end of the day.  If you are available to come in during those times (or one of those times) could you let me know which day or days of the week might work for you, and then I can put a schedule together.  I may not need a volunteer for each of those days every week, but knowing who is available, when, will help me with my planning.

Thanks!

PS  Please make sure you have had your criminal record check done!
