April 8-12

K5 Families, 

I hope everyone is having a great week. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Legend of the Lenten Pretzel on Friday. I hope they came home and excitingly shared with you everything they learned.

I sent home a letter yesterday regarding the Easter Egg Hunt. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer please email me as soon as possible.

Please take the time each day to look through your child’s homework folder and work with them. Every Tuesday your child completes the first sheet of each new word family in their small groups; the remainder are for homework. 

Note: Please remind your child to treat the books in our classroom nicely. We’ve discussed how to treat them, but have had many damaged in the past two weeks.
