    FIELD DAY

    Our annual Field Day is Friday, May 17th.

     

    LIBRARY BOOKS

    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!

     

    HOMEWORK

    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. 

    ATTENDANCE
    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
    possible. 

    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
    www.springhillpto.weebly.com.

    P.E.
    Please remember that students have P.E. on Tuesdays.  Your
    child MUST wear tennis shoes in order to participate.

    DATA WALL
    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.   

    RED FOLDERS
    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!

    RECYCLE
    We have a Yorkville Paper Bin located in the back of the school.  If
    possible, please discard ALL cardboard, magazines, papers, boxes, etc. into
    the bin.
