Thank you for coming!


Dear kinder parents,

Thank you so much for taking the time to attend your kinder’s conferences this week.  I enjoyed meeting with each of you to share the awesome progress they made and continue to make.  

It is hard to believe that within a few months they will be first graders!  Oh my! I will need to say good-bye….I don’t know if I am ready to do that.  

Give your kinder a hug and a high five!  They are AWESOME!!!  If you have any questions or concerns as the year comes to a close, please contact me at

Valentine Day Party Fun!

THANK YOU SO MUCH to ALL of the parents who donated supplies and to the parent volunteers (Mrs. Boersen, Mrs. Gale, Mrs. McCurry, Mrs. Hunt, Mrs. Marlink, Mrs. Stout, Mrs. Morton, Mrs. TerBeek, Mrs. VanWeelden) who made our last class party so much fun!!!  The kinders enjoyed themselves A LOT!  We LOVE that you chose to be part of this special day.

Please enjoy this short video that showcases the kinders and their friends.

Holiday Book Exchange

Books for the holiday book exchanged are due this week.   Please have your kinder bring in a wrapped book.  They may fill out the “from” section but please leave who it is to blank. If you ordered  books through our book order, those books arrived home with your kinder today.

If you have any questions, please contact me at

Roll out the welcome mat for……Snuggles!


OH ME!  OH MY!  We have begun our 3rd round of our Kool Kinder activities.  The kinders and Snuggles are super excited because Snuggles is inviting himself to be a guest at your house.  Yippee!

Again, we are randomly drawing out a name to see who will be the next Kool Kinder.  When chosen, that kinder will be bringing home an extra backpack which belongs to Snuggles.  Inside you will find….Snuggles, his blanket, his PJ’s, his favorite book, crayons, and the Sleep Over journal.  Have fun including your extra guest in your nightly activities.  Before bedtime, encourage and assist your kinder in drawing a picture and writing a sentence about that picture inside the sleep over journal.  (They will be explaining this entry to the class on the following day.)

 Fill out the check list paper and return Sunggles and ALL of his belongings on the next school day.

Fall Party

Our Fall Party planning has begun.  We have 2 parents from our classroom that are coordinating our upcoming Fall Party.  I will post a sign up sheet of the supplies needed if you would like to donate very soon.

8 volunteers may attend our party.  I will be selecting 4 parents of boys and 4 parents of girls.  If you get to attend our Fall Party then we will give other parents a turn at the next parties throughout the year (we will have a Holiday Party and a Valentines Day Party).  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.

Library Books and Homework

Today we went to the library and were able to check out books for the very first time.  It was so nice that some fourth graders came to library to help us choose just the right book and find our check-out library card.  Your kinder may borrow this book until next Wednesday when we go to the library again.  If you are done reading the book before Wednesday, you may return the book to school.  I have a library collection box for early returned books.  If the book is returned, your kinder will be able to check out another book.  Have fun reading and being a book lover at home!

Inside your kinder’s blue folder today is their first homework packet. This homework packet that can be worked on throughout the week and  should be returned back to school by next week Wednesday. This is what it looks like…..




Rainy Morning Tips

If it is raining in the morning when school starts what will we do? 

  • When the buses arrive the kinders will be escorted into the building and into my classroom.  If you are following the bus you can to come to my outside door “M”.  
  • If you are driving your kinder you can come to door “M” and see your kinder into school at 8:40am.(this is where they will be coming in every morning).
  • If you prefer to walk him/her to the school lobby and say good-bye, you may. Then, your kinder will be walked down to our classroom by staff in our building.
  • Please let me know if you have any questions at  Thank you for your flexibility!  Mrs. Bohl
