Weekly Message

Hello,

The children are excited about Kid Town.  This week will be a soft start to the simulation.  We will begin working on our "Pay Forms," creating a name for our town, filling out our ID Cards,  and sorting items for our businesses. I appreciate the things that have been brought in.  Please be sure the donated items are clean inside and out.   In the past, we have had a few grocery store products that have created a smell or enticed the ants to join us.  As you can imagine, neither are pleasant.  Don't forget to have your child bring in an empty wallet as soon as possible. 

Samaritan House Wee Care Program is asking for cans of soup, veggies, and beans. They are also in need of new or gently used clothing and shoes for children 0-18 years. Audubon student council is sponsoring this event.

Spelling test on Friday.                                                                                                               (brief   each   field   fleas   people   seat   we   wheels   need   where) 

I have noticed that many of the children have begun using RAZ-Kids at home.  As your child reads through the different books at their level, be mindful that to move to the next level, he/she will need to listen, read, and take the assessment of each story.  Please encourage your child to stay with one book, which will help with the comprehension questions. 

Please remind your child that they need to line up at our classroom when he/she comes on campus in the morning. We have reviewed this rule several times. Again, no playing on the play structure or running around. The children can stand in line and talk with their classmates. I appreciate your support.

Be sure to review the corrected work as it comes home in the Home Folder. This review is a chance to see what your child is doing in the classroom. Wonderful conversations can arise as your child shares, as well as spending this special time together.

Reminders:

  • No playing on the play structure before school.  When the children come onto the campus after 8:00, they need to line up at our classroom. 
  • PMT teachers have asked that the children wear closed-toed shoes Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  These shoes help prevent injuries.
  • Please remind your child if he/she needs a lunch ticket.  
  • Please write your child's name on jackets, backpacks, and lunch boxes.
