Read with a Flashlight tomorrow 5/18

May has been a moth of celebrating becoming READERS!

To celebrate….tomorrow  (Friday, May 18) is FLASHLIGHT FRIDAY!


Look around the house for a small flashlight to bring to school. Please label the flashlight with your kinder’s name.  (If you have extras, I am sure that friends who forget will appreciate it 🙂  

We will turn off the lights and read books by flashlight.  We will use them to spotlight words as we read.  The flashlights will be returned home the same day.  Refer to the earlier note for details about the rest of our Fun Reading Friday events.

Happy Mother’s Day!


I hope that all MOMS have a wonderful day that is just for you!  Your kinder loves you so much!  They were so excited to take home their card for you.  I hope you enjoy the special artwork that they created especially for you! Thank you for sharing your kinder with me each day!!!


Field Trip Memories


We had so much fun learning and observing living and non-living things during our class trip to Hemlock Crossing Nature Center this week.  We observed birds flying and chirping, water snakes slithering in the water and tadpoles and water beetles swimming.  We saw plant life and creatures in meadows and wetlands. Our five senses were very busy all morning long.  

Thank you, thank you to Mr. Vogel, Mr. Cozzolino, Mrs. Vannoy, Mr. Kniceley, Mrs. Laurie and Mrs. Garvin for joining us in learning. I am so glad that many other parents were able to join us for a picnic lunch at school.  What a fun day…even though it rained during lunch time. 

Enjoy the video that showcases our memories.

Read with a STUFFED ANIMAL tomorrow

Bring a SMALL stuffed animal on Friday!!

We are celebrating our fabulous year of reading growth throughout May by having “Fun Reading Fridays!”

Our second reading Friday is tomorrow: Read with a (small) stuffed animal Day. Your kinder is welcome and/or encouraged to take a small stuffed animal to read with.  The stuffed animal will come back home at noon. Check the pink note for details about the rest of our Fun Reading Friday events. 

The kinders will love reading with their stuffed animals!!!


Please check tonight……

Our field trip today at Hemlock Nature Center was AWESOME!! (even if it did rain at the end)  However, with our day of nature always comes those little critters we need to mindful of.  Ticks!  

As a staff we always give the good once over to look for any little hitchhikers.  However,  these little “friends” love to find spots to hide out that we aren’t allowed to search.  So maybe tonight is a bath night and an extensive once over would be helpful for Tick safety. I have attached the link from the CDC on Ticks.  Please let me know if you have any questions OR if you did see any hitchhikers (Ticks).

TWO Backpack snacks a day


This is a friendly reminder that we take TWO snack breaks during our school day.  ONE in the MORNING and ONE in the AFTERNOONThat means your kinder should come to school with TWO snacks each day.  Many of the kinders area coming to school without snacks. or snacks that they say they do not like to eat.  I have a some cereal that I am glad to pass out those kinders who forget but it is becoming quite common lately.

I am sure that your kinder will enjoy eating a variety of snacks that you can pack for them instead the the plain cereal I have on hand.

If you have any questions, please contact me at
