Bus Safety Training

Today we had a visit from Mrs. DeZeeuw and Mrs. Reeves, who are “real” bus drivers. They shared some bus safety tips with us. For example: No eating on the bus, keep our feet/legs out of the isle, use quiet voices.  We learned the ” 4B rules”. for sitting safely on the bus….back to back and bottom to bottom and more. 

It was good to review these important bus safety tips after we have been riding the bus for a few weeks.  We have awesome kinders who are soaring on the bus!

Fall Party Openings

Our Fall Party planning is underway.  The 2 parents have selected the activities and are working hard to put together a list of supplies needed.  That sign up sheet will be posted very soon.

In the meantime, the 4 boy parent volunteer spots have been filled and 1 girl parent volunteer spot.  If you are a parent/grandparent of a girl and would like to attend the Fall Party, please email me at  If there is not an interest from girl parents, I will open up the volunteer spots to boy parents.  Thank you for your patience and understanding of this rule. 

All volunteers must have completed a Background Form and be approved.  

Please email me at to let me know if you would like to volunteer to help at our party.

Show and Tell Writing

We are beginning a new unit in writing called Show and Tell writing.  To help your kinder in their writing, please assist them in choosing an item that they can write about and is suitable for school.  

This item needs to be small enough to fit inside the paper bag. It should not be a treasured object as it will stay at school for a few days.  Some possible ideas are—a small stuffed animal, an action figure, a toy car, a beaded bracelet, etc—something that is of interest to your kinder.  

Please do not choose an object that is breakable or expensive.

Your kinder needs to bring in their “show & tell” item tomorrow (Tuesday, Oct 1). This object will stay at school for a few days.  

If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you for your participation and support.   Mrs. Bohl
