When they are done singing I will walk them out to the gathering space and you may pick up your child there. You can then decide to stay for the rest of the concert or you are free to go home.
If your child participates in hot lunch, please go to Mrs. Fehler's classpage and sign up "to be notified". You will then receive e-mails regarding changes in the lunch menu and clean out the fridge options. http://yourclasspage.com/2625342265/jfehler.html

We also learned about the number 2, how to spell two and what a 2 looked liked. Wednesday the 4-K had a play date with the Kindergarteners! Mrs. Applebee showed the children how the smart board worked. They were very excited to be able to use it like the big kids! Next week we will talk about how we celebrate Thanksgiving. Wednesday is an early release for the school. Please park at the angled parking lot and I will meet you at the side door like last time.

This week the class came up with 31 "I" words! The story was "Inky Inchworm". Ms. Kim came and made "I am thankful" crosses with the children. They are hanging up on the bulletin board. The children learned about the number one. What a number 1 looks like and how to spell the number one. For show and tell the children brought in a picture of when they were one years old. The class played a guessing game to see if they knew who the picture was. The pictures are outside the classroom. Can you guess who is who? Next week the children will learn about the letter "T" and the number 2. Wednesday is the picture re-take day and they will be taking a class picture that day. Wednesday the class will be having another play date with the Kindergarten class! Thursday we will be attending Mass, please have your child in the classroom no later that 7:45.
This week the children began learning their letters. The letter this week was the letter "L". The class came up with 66 "L" words. Not bad for the first time! The story was "Loony Lion". The children made spin art lollipops and found the letters in their name to print with.
There was a misprint on the calendar, we will attend mass on the 21st not the 22nd.
The classroom is need of extra snacks to keep in the room in case someone forgets to bring one.

Parents of the extended care children: Please remember to sign your child out when you pick them up and to sign the sheet on Thursdays.
REMINDER: When dropping off your child, please park in the angle parking lot. We need to work together to keep our 4-K children safe.
Just a reminder class starts at 8:00 with the children doing worksheets or other learning activities. If a child does not complete the work during this time, the teachers need to find time during work time to complete the activity. This does interfere with the planned projects and the child's planning time. As parents please have your child in the classroom by 8:00 so they have time to finish their work. Homework is due on Wednesdays and Show & Tell is Thursdays.
