Last School Week of 2019!

Posted by Christine Frisiras on 12/15/2019

2019 is coming to a quick close!  Although your child will not be in school for 2 weeks please do not stop reading and writing each day.  20 minutes a day has so many benefits for a Kindergartener including brain development, exposure to new words (vocabulary growth), and making connections to the world around them.  The winter break is a great time for children to write, as well.  They can write about their day, help you with a shopping list, and more importantly, they can write thank you cards to relatives for gifts they may have received.

Thank you so much for sending in all the Gingerbread House materials!  We are in great shape for Friday's house decorating.  Be prepared on Friday afternoon for a beautiful centerpiece for your winter holiday table!

Stay healthy!  There are a lot of germs flying around!  Wash hands often and cover those coughs and sneezes.  We had a couple of kiddos out for multiple days last week and while I missed them, I was happy to not have their germs spreading throughout the classroom.  It's hard to have a sick kiddo at home, but it's better than having 10 kids absent in the class.  So thank you for taking care of them at home!  I, too, had a sick kiddo this weekend at college.  Even with the flu shot, she got the flu.  It was hard to take care of her at home so I did what any mom would do and drove up to Tacoma and made her chicken soup in the dorm kitchen.  Poor thing!  

The kids did so great at Thursday's morning meeting!  I hope you got to see them perform in front of the school!  If not, they were fabulous!  I was proud of them!  Thanks for singing with them at home to prepare!
