A Couple Reminders…

Just a couple quick reminders:

Whether your family are Flames fans or not, tomorrow is jersey day! To celebrate the Flames first playoff game against the Colorado Avalanche tomorrow, students can wear their Flames gear (or any jersey if you don’t have a Flames one) or lots of RED!

Tomorrow is our Kindergarten Performance. The dress rehearsal will be at 10:30, where the kids will be performing in front of the Grade 1s and 2s. Families are welcome to attend the Dress Rehearsal. The evening performance begins at 6:30, but students are asked to arrive and head straight to their classroom at 6:00 pm. The doors will not open until 6, so come early to try and snag some good seats! The students don’t have costumes, but they are chicks (except for one who is a speckled frog) so if they want to wear more yellow to go with the chick theme, they are welcome to. But they don’t HAVE to. If they have a favourite outfit picked out already, they can absolutely wear that too!

Zoo Field Trip: next Wednesday, April 17th. If you haven’t paid yet, please do so ASAP. Also, please make sure that you send in your child’s zoo pass if you have one. I have a bag to keep them all together and safe. My understanding is that I need to show the staff when we get there any zoo passes when we check in. So even if you are volunteering, please send your child’s in so I have them altogether. On the day of the field trip, please make sure they arrive by 8:00 am as usual and then pick-up will be at the kinder doors at 2:30 pm. If they are late, they may miss the bus and we wouldn’t want that to happen! If you’re child goes to a child care provider, please contact them to let them know of any changes to the regular schedule. As we’re there all day, please pack adequate snacks AND a proper lunch for your child. Also ensure they are dressed appropriately for the weather, including proper shoes for walking around the zoo all day. If it’s sunny, please make sure to apply sunscreen before they arrive at school, and it would be a good idea to send a hat too.

Important Kinder Updates!!!

Now that we’re heading into the last few months of kindergarten (unreal!!!) there are some things that you should be aware of in the coming days/weeks:

~ Jersey Day on Thursday – this is in honour of the Calgary Flames first game of playoffs, however you are not confined to Flames gear or even a hockey jersey! Any jersey is fine!!

~ Easter Party on Thursday – please check your email or click on the link below to sign up to bring snacks in for our Easter Party on Thursday.

Morning:   http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0d4fa5a72cabfe3-morning2
Afternoon:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0d4fa5a72cabfe3-afternoon2

~ Kindergarten Musical – our kinder musical is May 17th. In the newsletter is said that the Dress Rehearsal is at 1:30 pm (which is the usual time for rehearsals), however this won’t work as the morning class would miss out!! We are currently figuring out a plan with Ms. Milner, so I will keep you posted as soon as we know the definite plan.

~ Community Day on May 2nd – so far we only have 4 parent volunteers (from our class)!! We would love to give our families priority to be involved, however if we don’t have enough then we will go explore in the community of Airdrie (which is okay too!). Please fill out and return the form that was sent home last week asap if you are able to be a special guest. Also, if you are able to volunteer for both morning and afternoon times, we would greatly appreciate it!!

~ Family Dance Night on May 4th – a letter will be sent home in the next couple days with more details about this awesome event our school is hosting as a fundraiser for the Airdrie Food Bank. Each class can sign up to build a themed gift basket to raffle off. We brainstormed some ideas as a class today, so when we decide tomorrow, we will send the forms home (be aware that there is info on BOTH sides of the page!!). Whatever the theme is, each student can bring in items of any value to contribute to our class collaborative themed basket. Once this is decided, I will post about it with some ideas to get the brainstorming wheels turning 🙂

~ Calgary Reads Book Sale – This is a massive, Calgary-wide used book sale that raises money for the Calgary Reads Program which supports early readers. Rocky View is connected with this program through the Wee Reads Program, where students from CW Perry and Bert Church High School come to read with students in our school. Any and all book donations are available to be dropped off at the Calgary Food Bank (April 18-28) or the Calgary Curling Club (May 2-7). The actual book sale will be at the Calgary Curling Club from May 12-14. This is spectacular and massive event that has significantly contributed to my classroom library. If you do go, I suggest going on Friday or Saturday (before everything is picked through) and be sure to bring a wagon to fill!!
