Class Updates

If you have not returned the report card envelope, please send it in your child’s mail bag on Monday.

Morning Drop-off – when dropping off your child in the morning, please make sure to stay with your child until they enter the school as there is no one supervising outside. The staff who is outside has other responsibilities and are not able to supervise your child. 

Home Reading

*All students are beginning with an A level book. As I read with each student, we will adjust as needed.
*At this point, Home Reading books are exchanged every Monday.
*Home Reading in kindergarten is intended as an activity done with a parent/guardian. The students are not expected to read the books independently at this stage.
*Repetition of a book is crucial for literacy development! If a student has “memorized” a book, that is okay! *Have your child point to each word as they read, rather than just saying all the words quickly.
*Do a letter hunt, where they need to find all the words that start with a specific letter. You could also do a word hunt of the high frequency words (ex. the, in, at, etc.).
*Encourage your child to “read” the book by looking at all the details in the picture.
*Ask questions through the book: What is happening in the picture? What do you think will happen next? What do you think this book will be about (before starting a new book). These all contribute to comprehension skills.

Kindergarten Spring Performance

Thursday, April 11
Dress Rehearsal at 10:30 – families are welcome to attend the dress rehearsal (there will be much better seating!)
Students need to arrive at 6:00 pm and go to their classroom.
Performance begins at 6:30 pm.
Students do not need to wear a costume. They can wear their favourite spring outfit. The morning classes will be wearing chick headbands that are being made at school.
Students can be dismissed directly from the stage. If any students do come back to the classroom (to grab coats, etc.), please only send 1 person to get them as the hallways get very congested and squishy!

Zoo Field Trip

Permission forms and online payments due Wednesday, April 10th.
If you have a zoo pass for your child, please send it in by Wednesday, April 10th.
Drop off is at the regular time (8:00 am) and pick up is at the kindergarten doors at 2:30 pm.
We still need 2 volunteers, so if you have submitted a police check to the office and are able, we would love to have you!
If you are able to volunteer for the zoo field trip or any future field trips, please be aware that any younger children are not able to come along.

I would like to volunteer for the zoo trip. I have my police check and wasn’t able to drop off today but will be by Monday with it.

    Thank you for letting me know! I’ll add you to the list. As long as you have your police check into the office by the field trip it’s all good. Thank you for volunteering!
