General Classroom Information:

Wow!  It's hard to believe it, but in a few days, the students will officially be first graders!  We are so proud of them and all of their hard work this year!  Please see the reminders below about the graduation ceremony:

1.  The ceremony will be taking place on Wednesday, June 13th at 8:45 am in the Upper School Gym.  Arrive early to get a good seat! 
 Our class will be standing in the middle section of the risers.  Extended family/friends are welcome and there is not a limit to the number of attendees. 

2.  Students should arrive to school at their regular time, and come to the classroom as usual to prepare for the ceremony.  

3.  Students should dress up for this special event!  Girls- please keep hairstyles low this day, if possible.  Students will be wearing graduation caps, and high buns/ponytails/etc, can make it hard for the cap to stay in place.

4.  Please do not send in any backpacks, folders, etc on this day.

5.  The ceremony will last approximately 45 minutes.  After the ceremony, please meet the class on the grass area in front of the upper school building (if there is rain, please meet us back in the classroom).
​  Please be sure to see Mrs. Krock or myself to sign your child out.

6.  Directly after the ceremony, kindergarten students are dismissed for the school year!  They will leave with you.  Even though other grades have school on Thursday 6/14, kindergarten does not.

Mystery Reader Information:

In our classroom this year, you will have the opportunity to participate in a student favorite:  Mystery Reader!  On a specific days, we are inviting parents, grandparents, siblings, neighbors, etc., to bring in and read a favorite picture book to the class. The students LOVE when their family member is the Mystery Reader, and the whole class benefits from an adult sharing their love of reading. 

Because this is a mystery, all information must be kept TOP SECRET from your child, including the date you are coming in and the book you are reading.  About a week before you are scheduled to come in, I will email you and ask you for five clues about yourself that I can read to the class before you arrive.  The students love making predictions about who our Mystery Reader will be!

If you need any help choosing a book, or have any questions, I would be happy to assist!

Fun Friday Information:

Fun Fridays offer you a chance to come in and lead the class in a special activity!  In the past, parents have led the class in making a simple craft, playing a game, or making a special treat.  Activities should last about 30 minutes.  You are welcome to use the classroom supplies (construction paper, scissors, glue, crayons, etc.).  I will reach out to you about a week before your scheduled date to see if you are in need of any assistance.
