March 11-15

K5 Families,

As we begin our Lenten season, kindergarten is learning about doing good deeds to help others in need!

“I am going to do something to fill someone’s bucket today.”

Have You Filled a Bucket Today? By Carol McCloud and Illustrated by David Messing

Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 13, your child will be having their kindergarten graduation photo taken. Please have your child come to school dressed in formal attire for Mass and individual photo. They will change into school uniforms (normal Mass attire) after individual photos are taken in order to take a class photo. Please refer to the letter that was sent home last week!

Also, starting next week your child will be bringing home a daily homework folder. The folder will contain weekly math and word work, sight words, and leveled readers from our reading series. A letter will be sent home next week with the folder to explain the process. We are so eager to witness the excitement as your child’s ability to read improves and grows!
