School is Done! Hooray!

 

Dear kinder families, 

Can you believe it?  The school year is done. ALL of the kinders have grown and matured this year in school. When there is a rainy day or when your kinder says “I don’t know what to do!”, encourage them to complete pages in their math workbooks, write more stories, read books, write to 100 and beyond and create a list of popcorn words they know. Continue to foster their love of learning, even in the summer months by using the June/July/August summer calendars or Summer Review Packet posted at the top of our blog under CALENDARS. I hope that the kinders had fun looking at their Kindergarten Memory Books that were inside the bags with your kinders’ supplies.  These books are filled with pages of work that they completed up to our time of learning at home.  I hope that as you look through your kinder’s book you will be filled with memories of the time spent in kindergarten.   

Thank you for VOLUNTEERING this year!  Whether you were a TAKE HOME reading volunteer, helped with a class party, or a combination of them, THANK YOU!  It takes many who love and care for our kinders to give them the best, fun experiences possible.  I could not have done it without you!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR KINDER WITH ME!! I feel so blessed to be part of your kinder’s schooling. I am so grateful for your support and encouragement that you have shown this year….a different, unexpected year it was!  It was a privilege to spend my days with your kinder, both in the classroom and in remote learning style.  They are so precious and special.  I feel very honored that you entrusted me to care and teach them this year.  They have grown so much….both in height and maturity.  🙂  I am looking forward to seeing the friendships the kinders have made blossom as they continue to learn at Georgetown.  (I have the fantastic privilege of seeing my kinders in the hallways and maybe getting a hug or two next year!  Hooray!!):)

This video showcases what fun memories we created we this year, both at school and at home.  I hope that you enjoy watching it.      We have had an AMAZING year together! 

Have a fabulous summer!!!  Next year’s teacher will be announced mid to late summer.  You will be notified.

Lots and lots of love,  I really do love your kinders! (Can I still call them that now that they are first graders?) Please keep in touch and have a fabulous summer!  Mrs. Bohl :)
