Please remember there is no school on Friday, May 10th for Strawberry Festival.

Parents, it is imperative that your child return his/her library book on Fridays. Returning library books on Friday is part 'of their homework' and teaches students responsibility. Please make sure your child returns his/her book EVERY Friday. Thank you for your help!
Please encourage your child to do complete homework neatly and correctly. Homework is as follows:
Monday night-leveled reader books: please have your child read multiple times, parent signs the books, and return to school
Monday-Thursday nights: fluency homework
Tuesday-Thursday nights: read bear book, sign page, and return book and clip to school
KINDERGARTEN LEVELED READERS
Each week, students must read at least 2 leveled readers to me. I require
students to read to me so I can check for fluency, comprehension, sight word
recognition, and various other reading skills. We practice these stories
during our learning station rotations, however, some students need extra
practice. Please have your child read to you nightly.
It is very important for your child to attend school every day unless he/she
is sick. Please make doctor, dentist, and other appointments after school if
PTO-PLEASE GET INVOLVED!
Parents, I am encouraging you to become involved with our PTO. They do SO
MUCH for our school and for our classroom. I would like to see more parents
attend our monthly meeting and volunteer to help with upcoming events.
Please check out our PTO'S website. The address is
Please remember that students have P.E. on Tuesdays. Your
child MUST wear tennis shoes in order to participate.
In order to show our progress in Kindergarten, we now have a data wall
outside our classroom. There are 4 colors for the data wall: blue
(advanced), green (proficient), yellow (basic), and red (below basic). The
advanced scores are 100-90, proficient scores are 89-80, basic scores are 79-
70, and below basic scores are 69 and below. Every time your child takes a
test, we will discuss the test score and he/she will move their card to the
appropriate chart. Therefore, from now on your child will receive a ‘grade’
on every test. All information is confidential. I have explained to
students not to tell anyone, other than family, where their card is located.
I encourage you to ask your child about the data wall. There is a picture
under the links tab for you to view. If you have any questions, please feel
free to contact me.
Parents, please look through your child's folder every night. Please
send all money in envelopes and place in your child's red folder. I check
these in the mornings.
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Our school is collecting box tops for education. We receive 10 cents for
every box top collected. Thank you for helping our school!
ALL ABOUT ME TEE
In order for the students to learn more about each other, I have
purchased "All About Me Tees". Students are to fill in the information and
return to school within 2 weeks. The 'tees' will be posted in the hall for
two weeks. This will be a year long project. Look for more information when
it is your child's turn!
We have a Yorkville Paper Bin located in the back of the school. If
possible, please discard ALL cardboard, magazines, papers, boxes, etc. into
