Early Childhood

Mrs. Lavarreda and Ms. King

Hello everybody, we hope you’ve enjoyed this past rainy weekend; having this crazy weather certainly helped our recently planted flowers to grow faster. Last week we had the opportunity to attend The Little Prince play at our school; we enjoyed it very much and we would like to thank Mrs. Rodriguez for arrange this event for the whole school, it was a nice experience.

We also had Ms. Payne the school counselor who came to talk about the safe touch program; we were so proud of all our students for showing such interest and respect while Ms. Payne was talking.  We will reinforce these lessons throughout the rest of the school year and if you have any questions about the program please contact us at any time.

On Wednesday the kindergarteners prepare “Natilla” a Spanish dessert for the class; they served it accompany by a baby banana and it was delicious! We will continue with more Spain lessons for one more week. We also had a special lesson on “Earth day”; we’ve talked about the ways we can contribute to make our planet a better place.  One of the activities we did in the class consisted on given the students different items (some pretend ones) to decide in which category such items were best fit ( we had 5 bins labeled recycle, reuse, reduce, compost, and trash); they had to put a little bit of thinking but they did a great job.

This past week we also started talking about dinosaurs! We are so excited about the new works and we will continue adding more in all the areas in the classroom. 

Our kindergarteners will take the achievement test this week; please make sure they have a good rest night and a nutritious breakfast before they come to school. We will start our test promptly at 9:00 a.m. and we are asking parents to bring their kids on time; while the kindergartners are taking their test, the rest of the students will be in the playground participating on planned activities. Parents apply sunscreen and bug spray to your kids for we are expecting warm weather most of the week; also send a water bottle to school every day!

Reminders:  

  • Return Monday folder, mat cover, cloth napkin, and lunch forms on time.
  • Girls need to wear shorts under their dresses please.

 

Have a great week!
