Announcements:

On early dismissal days, such as Parent Conferences, please park in the parking lot and come into the room to pick up your K4 child. In order to avoid dismissal overlaps, please be here promptly at 11:00. Please remind grandparents of this if they will be picking your child up. Please do not wait to pick up your child at his/her older siblings dismissal time.

Please send a separate bag for all ASC items. This helps notes from school not to get lost.

Please see your child’s teacher to sign up for a Parent/Teacher Conference!

K5 Overview

September 15th-19th

Memory Verse: “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Psalms 119:11 (NIV)

 Unit: Seasons of the Year II

Language Arts: Your child should be able to recognize upper/lowercase letters at this time. If your child is having difficulty, practice at home is necessary. Remember to review your letters and sounds.

Math: We will be working on writing numbers to 10.

Announcements:

  • Next week we will start Letterbooks!
  • Tuesday folders must be returned on Wednesday. Homework should be completed in pencil unless otherwise specified.
  • Please remember that our day begins at 8:15. If your child enters the room after 8:15, he/she is tardy. On our report cards, 5 tardies equals 1 absence. Please let your child walk in on their own.
  • Please review the weekly Bible verse with your child.
  • Ice cream is served in the cafeteria on Wednesdays. If your child purchases a school lunch, ice cream is included. If your child brings a lunch from home, they may purchase ice cream for $.25. Also, each teacher requires that the child eat some portion of his/her lunch before receiving ice cream. We do not purchase ice cream or popsicles on any other day.
  • Please make sure your child is bringing their blue tote bag each day. Remember to leave all toys and valuables at home. Kindergarten is not allowed to bring an extra backpack with toys for ASC.
  • Please label all items with your child’s name, especially jackets and sweaters.
  • Please remember to send in extra clothes for your child. Don’t forget to change them out when the seasons change.
  • The safest and best way to pick your child up from school is to use the canopy drive-through. If you need to speak with a K5 teacher, please wait until after 2:45 p.m.
  • Please sign up for a conference. There is a schedule posted outside your teacher’s door.
  • If your daughter comes to school wearing a dress or skirt, please have her wear shorts or leggings underneath.
  • According to the K5 handbook, all students should wear tennis shoes.
