Announcements:

Children entering K5 at any school need to have a School Entry Medical Exam.  These forms are available at your pediatrician’s office.  Laws have tightened and children cannot attend class unless the school has this form – no exceptions.

Please leave toys at home, except for those to cuddle with at nap time.  Lost and broken toys bring tears!

Remember – tennis shoes are required attire for K4.  They are the only shoes that allow safe navigation on the playground.

We work hard to protect clothes from paint – but spots are always a possibility.  Keep this in mind when you dress your child for school.

Please review the skills learned each week at home.  This will help to reinforce their retention of the work covered in class.

Does your child know his phone number, address and birthday?
