“Fall” Into Kindergarten!

Happy autumn everyone! Just a few quick updates for this week…

Kindergarten is off to a fantastic start and the children have settled in to our daily routine. Each week we are enjoying learning time in the classroom and experiencing new things in Music, P.E., and Library. We also had our first popcorn day of the year! If you would still like to pre-pay for a popcorn bag just send me a note and I can send the PTO signup form home with your child.

Speaking of popcorn….our awesome PTO volunteers are always looking for more helpers. The next popcorn day is Wednesday, October 11th and you can contact PTO to volunteer.

The monthly newsletter for our classroom will be coming home in your child’s folder next week. It has some information about what we’re learning in the month of October and info about various other classroom happenings. Feel free to call, email, or send a note if you have a question about any of the newsletter items.

Welcome to Kindergarten!

Welcome Families!

It was such a pleasure to meet so many of our newest Irving Tigers at the Meet the Teacher event! For those of you who didn’t have a chance to stop by, here are a few reminders for your child’s first day of school…

*Please check-in at our kindergarten table before coming into the classroom. We want to be sure your child has his/her name tag and that we confirm your transportation plans before you say goodbye for the day.

*We will be going outside for recess so please make sure your child is wearing clothes and shoes that are comfortable for playing on the playground.

*We will also be having lunch in the cafeteria – please make sure your child can open most of his/her own lunch items if your child is bringing a lunch from home.

Thank you again for helping to make the start of this new school year so inspiring! We are looking forward to meeting with you again at conferences on Thursday and Friday.
