 Enjoy your summer!

Literacy Idea

Visit the library often and have fun with a variety of books for your child.  Choose some they can read by themselves and some that you read to them.    


News
         Remember that on the last day of school, (Wednesday, May 24th) ALL students, both in the morning and afternoon classes will meet from 8:50-10:30/10:40.  This will allow every student the opportunity to meet his/her first grade teacher.  They will spend 30 minutes in their 1st grade classroom.  We will dismiss the PM students at 10:30 and the AM students at 10:40.  All PM students need to be picked up in their kindergarten classroom.  The buses will not be running for the PM students.  The AM students (including extended day students) will meet parents and buses as usual upstairs by the front doors. 
         Thank you for a wonderful year!  I love each of your adorable kindergartners and hope you have a fabulous summer!  Take Care!

         Wow, we are winding down to the end of the year so quickly!  Please remember to return all library books, and take home library books. 
         On the last day of school, Wednesday, May 24th, all students, both in the morning and afternoon classes will meet from 8:50-10:30/10:40.  This allows every student the opportunity to meet his/her first grade teacher!  Students will meet in their 1st grade classroom for approximately 30 minutes. There will not be Extended Day Kindergarten held on this day.  From past experience, it works much more smoothly if we dismiss the PM students at 10:30 and the AM students at 10:40.  All PM students need to be picked up in their kindergarten classroom. The AM classes will meet parents and buses as usual upstairs.  The buses will not be running for the PM students.

Literacy Idea
   After you have read a story to your child, have him/her retell it to you with a beginning, middle and end.


News
         The Kite Flight for Reading and Sight will be held at the Middle School from 10:00-3:00  on Saturday, April 29th.  All students who turn in their completed reading chart will be able to choose a kite, book, or movie pass.  Let’s help South Elementary get a check for the most participants and our Kindergarten classes a pizza party for the most participants.
          Remember our End of Year Kindergarten program will be held on Friday, May 19th at 10:30 AM. This will be for ALL kindergarten students!  We will combine both morning and afternoon classes!  If your student attends Extended Day Kindergarten, they will not have class in the afternoon on that day.  If your student is in Mrs. Ekker’s PM class, they will come in the morning that day and will not have class in the afternoon.  School begins at 8:50. At the conclusion of the program, parents are welcome to take their students home for the remainder of the day. Please mark this day on your calendars and let grandparents know about it as well.  We will have the students dress in dresses or skirts for the girls and dress pants for the boys.
         THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU DO!!

Literacy Idea
·      Please continue reading with your kindergartner for at least 15 minutes a day/5 times a week.  


News
          It is exciting to see the progress of the students!  I sure love each one of them and appreciate your support at home.  We will continue to learn skills pertinent to their success for the rest of the school year and will review skills already learned.

         Our DIBELS and KinderGrader assessments will be administered in the next two weeks.  It will be fun to see the growth each student has made.  Thank you for making school a priority!
         
         We also look forward to presenting our End Of Year program to you!  I will put more information again about this in the near future.  THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO!!
