Just a reminder that tomorrow (Monday Jan. 30th) is a PA day! We (the staff) will be at school writing our report cards for the second year Kindergarten students (formerly known as Senior Kindergarten students.) Report cards (or now they are called “Kindergarten Communication of Learning”) will be sent home on Tuesday February 22. I hope the children enjoy their extra long weekend! We look forward to seeing them at school on Tuesday!
I hope the children enjoy their extra long weekend! We look forward to seeing them back at school on Tuesday! We will be celebrating Chinese New Year and our centres are planned around this holiday and the year of the Rooster! A big thank-you to Kaelyn and her family for sending in red envelopes for each of the children!
Last Day of January is on Tuesday! Yay, good-bye January and hello February!!
Here is the February calendar if you want to print it off. A hard copy will go home on Tuesday, take a look, does it look right? 🙂
Valentine’s Day News
In Kindergarten, we love to celebrate being friends!!! We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day in the chickadee class on Valentine’s Day which is Tuesday February 14th.
We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day in the chickadee class on Valentine’s Day which is Tuesday February 14th.
If your child would like to send in Valentine’s cards (homemade or theme-store-bought cards) for his or her friends, they are welcome to do so. This is optional and if your child does not want to do this, that is absolutely fine.
All we ask. is that if your child does want to bring in Valentine’s cards, to please send in a valentine card for every child in the class. We have 29 students in our class. I would suggest you start sooner than later, writing and signing his or her name 29 times is a big task for 4-6 year olds and starting early will avoid any frustration! Please do not worry about writing friends’ names on the valentine’s day card. Just your child’s name is perfect for this age!
Our Valentine’s card exchange (as well as fun Valentine’s day crafts, songs and stories) will be on Tuesday February 14th. Also, just a reminder that if your child is bringing in Valentine cards, please send them with your child to school on Tuesday morning, not sooner, please. Putting them in “Mr. Zippy” is a great idea!
I think that is it for now about Valentine’s Day.
Enjoy your Sunday night!
Love, Ms. Jo-Anne 🙂
