Our Second Annual Art Show was a huge success. All of the art work was adorable. Thank you to all the parents and families that came to place bids. We are still accepting donations for art. If you are interested in purchasing your child's art work, please contact your child's teacher to make a donation toward classroom technology and supplies.

Dear Families and Friends,
January was a busy month for our Kinderkittens. We are half way through the 17-18 school year. The children have grown and learned so much. New in Kindergarten is the introduction of Accelerated Reader. We had parent nights on January 16th and 18th, but its not too late for you to be involved. This year, students are permitted to check out their own book from the media center. After reading their AR book 3 times to/with a parent, the student may take the AR test in the classroom. Parents may also walk their child in to the Computer Lab to complete an AR test every morning starting at 8:30-9:00.
January 22 - 26 was Celebrate Literacy Week. This is the week that teachers, students and staff are immersed in Literacy projects all week. On Monday of that week, we had the door decorating contest. All the doors were great. Our classroom winners were: Ms. Thigpen, Mrs. Hickox, and Mrs. Kosakowski's doors. Judges were instructional coaches from the other schools. Click here to see a sllide show of all of the doors.
On Wednesday of Celebrate literacy week, we also celebrated the 100th day of school. This is a day when celebrate all things 100. We dress as 100 year olds, count groups of 100 items, etc. Always a fun day.
On Friday, January 26, we had our January PBIS event: Snow Day. Mrs. Bonnie Jones talked to every class about growing up, lliving in New York, where it snows. She brought her sled to show the kids. Each class made fake snow in their classroom. The kids loved it! Directions for making snow at home are: Mix 3 cups of baking soda and 1 cup of conditioner.
February will have more fun stuff coming up, including our very own Art Show, Jump Rope for Heart, the Disney Play, and the Seussical Play. We love having parents involved, so if you are interested in volunteering at any of our events or daily in the classroom, please contact your child's teacher or Mrs. Naomi Anderson, our assistant principal.
