There will be a parent meeting on Tuesday, January 28th at 6:00PM. Please make plans to attend!
We will continue our iReady computer test on Tuesday. This test assesses students in the areas of reading and math. I am proud of their efforts so far! As soon as all students have finished the tests, I will send home the test results.
It is imperative that your child come to school (unless sick), be on time, and appointments should be after school if possible.
If your child is going to eat breakfast in the mornings at school, please make sure he/she is here no later than 7:45AM. Students must be here by 7:50AM or they will be tardy. Also, students should be able to walk into the building independently. Thank you for your help with this matter.
CHANGE IN SCHEDULE
There is going to be a change in our schedule. We are now going to have PE on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make sure your child wears tennis shoes on these days.
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 remember that students have P.E. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 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

every box top collected. Thank you for helping our school!
We have a Yorkville Paper Bin located in the back of the school. If
