We are asking the students to use appropriate colors for coloring on their work and not use their pencils to color. We would like them to use pencil for writing only, please. Please encourage this on homework as well. They can use any colors they want when they are doing “free drawing.”
Thank you to parents for their assistance in preparing their children and to the students for learning their speeches and poems for the Oratorical Fest! The following four students will represent Kindergarten at the Oratorical Fest on Thursday:
Helen Clausnitzer will recite “Clouds” by Christina Rossetti
Romeo Ang will recite “ The Dinosaur Dinner” by Dennis Lee

Congratulations to all the students for their effort!
