Special Love

 

Thank you to those that took the time to make me feel so special during teacher appreciation week.  The cards, flowers, candy, notes, classroom supplies, snacks, breakfast, lunch and creative gifts were so thoughtful.  I am so grateful for you all…thank you for thinking of me!

 

Kindergarten Celebration Night

 

June 11 6:00-7:00

I cannot believe I am already writing about Kindergarten Celebration!  How fast has this year gone by?!?!?! Please join us for our annual event here at RCS.  This night will include lots of love, laughs and snacks. You are welcome to bring your family; siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, whoever you see fit!  Please indicate how many will be joining as we set tables up to accommodate families. THIS IS NOT A GRADUATION…it is simply an evening to show you what we’ve learned throughout the year and sing songs that you may have missed.  Please have children here by 5:45 as I would like to start on time. I will be purchasing the tablecloths, plates and napkins. I would appreciate your help in bringing food to share. Sarah May has offered to buy us a cake (thank you!!!!).  If you have something you’d like to bring please let me know. Otherwise, I have a sheet with items needed attached. Please return this sheet by June 1st.

AMBER ALERT CHILD ID KITS

I am happy to announce that we will be offering you an opportunity to take part in receiving a ID kit for your child.  We have lined up the AMBER Alert Coordinator from the Massachusetts State Police to come to RCS and put together a kit for your child if you so desire.  “During this time Troopers will fingerprint children and prepare digital child identification kits. The Digital child identification kits are a valuable asset for law enforcement agencies in the terrible event that a child goes missing or is abducted. The child ID kit provided by the Massachusetts State Police holds specifics such as the child’s biographical information, photograph, and full set of fingerprints. Additionally, a DNA buccal swab is included to collect a child’s DNA which can be used to confirm a child’s identity through DNA comparison.” MSP facebook page.  If you would like your child to receive a kit you must send in a thumb drive in a ziplock bag with child’s name on it with the returned form filled out by Friday, May 19th.  See attached!

 

Spring is FINALLY here!

Please encourage your child to wear comfortable shoes for playground fun.  Flip flops and open toed shoes aren’t the best choices and children will be restricted to walking and staying off playground equipment.  Now that boots and snow pants are GONE I will be placing your child’s extra clothes bag back in the backpacks. This makes it easier for both of us to keep track of the clothes if needed.  

 

Special Love

Special thanks to Bayard’s family for sending in clorox wipes and lots of snacks! WoW!  Big shout out to Mrs. Tandy for coming in to help run centers and for making the special surprise with us! Thank you to Bella’s family for buying Dean’s Beans to support our field trip to Davis as well as all the families that bought flowers to support us!  Totals next week!

I need you all to know how awesome you are.  Mrs. Hopkins and I have been talking about how wonderful it is to see you take the time with your children to work on homework together.  I am a firm believer that this time is not wasted. Not only does it boost self esteem in our littles but it creates a home/school connection that is so important.  You are able to see first hand what your child is learning and how much they are growing. Look at their writing! Look at their reading! Look at their math skills!  Without your help your child would not be this successful. I want you to know how much a value you all as caregivers and feel fortunate to work alongside you on this educational journey.  It surely does take a village, and I am honored to be part of yours.

Thank you to Isla’s family for sending in extra snacks!

 

We practiced our first “Lock Down” drill.  We sat  in a special spot and talked about why and if we would ever have to sit there quietly.  As discussed with you at orientation, the  example used  was the scared raccoon in the building. Please let me know if you have any questions at all!
