What an exciting time of year it is in kindergarten! The children have learned so many skills and are now putting them all together in their reading, writing, math, science, social studies and more. The projects and products the children are completing are impressive. But the most improved skills are stamina, perseverance and problem solving. I am so proud of each and every one of the children!
This is a busy week with the early dismissal at 12:50 on Wednesday, Library on Thursday and our Field Trip to the Zach Theater on Friday. Please send a lunch with your child on Friday, as we will be eating in our classroom when we return from the show.
Some important days in our future include May Madness, May 5 and field trip to Crowe’s Nest Farm, May 11.

*Counting and graphing data

Thanks to those who have logged on to the Seesaw sharing APP. The students uploaded another book they made. This one is about ROCKS.
At BPE the only school wide parent/teacher conferences are in October. I am happy to offer to meet with anyone who would like to sit down and chat for a bit about the year. I can also touch base over the phone. Please let me know if you are interested and whether you prefer a phone or face to face visit. I will get back to you with available times and days. Please know this is completely optional.
Thank you for your continued support.
