The bats come out.

The cats come out.

The pumpkins come out, too.

The treats come out.

The ghosts come out.

It’s Halloween…BOO!


We are off to a wonderful start in Kindergarten!  The children are settling in and are getting used to the rules and routines of the classroom.  They are doing an excellent job and should be extremely proud of themselves 🙂


We will be going on our first field trip to Remlinger Farm on Tuesday, October 17th.  Thank you to all who have volunteered!  The children will wear their school uniforms to the farm as well as bring a bagged lunch.  We will leave SMS around 9:15 a.m. and return back to school by 1:00/1:15 p.m.

Our two class books have started to make their way around to different families in the classroom.  The children enjoy sharing their families comments with their friends the next day.  Thanks for being so involved in our classroom 🙂

We will be having our Halloween party on Tuesday, October 31st.  As you and your child find a costume for our Halloween Party, please keep our school costume policy in mind. Thank you!  Students are allowed to wear life-affirming costumes during the Halloween party.  Students will wear free dress to school, and change into costumes right before the party.  Please make sure the costume is something that can be slipped over clothes worn to school (we only have 1 bathroom), and something your child can change into on his/her own. Please, no masks or weapons.

Every Monday, a newsletter will be going home indicating what the children will be learning throughout the week as well as any special events or activities that may be taking place.  Please make sure to check your child’s folder every night.  This folder will also serve as a communication device between parents and myself.  If there is a change in dismissal or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to place a note in your child’s folder.  I check them every morning.

We will be having a small snack every afternoon.  To avoid confusion, please place this snack/drink in a separate container or pouch in your child’s backpack.  Thank you for your help!

School starts at 8:25 a.m. on a daily basis.  All Kindergarten students will convene outside our room and stand on the gray line until it is time to come inside.  The school day ends at 3:00 p.m.  Children can either be picked up at the classroom or on the carpool line.
