Kindergarten Update #2
Dear Parents, May 20.2022
For our last weeks of school, we will be making some changes in the regular routines so please check the weekly letter describing the changes and some fun additions! We will focus on finishing up the last skills in the SuperKid Unit and Bridges Math Curriculum along with end of the year assessments.
As we approach the end of our school year, we want to let you know how much your children have grown this school year. Many are reading and computing nicely and are ready to tackle the first grade curriculum with success. The challenges of having to adhere to COVID protocols and then adjust as they were lifted, has offered the students (and teachers) opportunities to grow in a new learning environment. Working in a school community such as St. Philip Neri makes us realize how grateful and blessed we are as teachers; without the parent collaboration and your partnership we could not be successful in the education of your children. Thank you.
We look forward to our End of year Outing with the Kindergarteners on Friday, June 10th. Here are the details:
10:45-12:00: Field Day at Lincoln Park with Mr. Croft
12:00-12:20: Walk back to class
12:20-1:05: Pizza lunch
1:05-2:05: Art Docent Project. Hosted by Phanette (Bennett L. Mom) and helpers
2:05: Special treat!
Maxwell is our SuperKid next week. Thanks to Samantha R. for sharing her things.
