Everything you Need to Know

Everything you Need to Know About the
 Upcoming Kindergarten Show on
Thursday, April 16th 2015
1.  What time is the show? 6:00 p.m. PLease sit on the side away from the piano in order to best see the students in our class.

2.  When should the children arrive and where?
5:45 p.m. at their own classroom(a light supper is helpful- nervous tummies can be challenging)

3.  Should my child wear special clothing? We will provide a special t-shirt. Your child may wear dark pants – navy blue or black

 4. Where can I meet my child after the stage portion? Come pick up your child in the classroom, and follow the art show scavenger hunt located in your program.

5.  Should we take the artwork on display home with us?  No. Your child’s artwork will be sent home at a later date.

***We could use volunteers right after school on Thursday to help hang artwork. Please let your child’s teacher know if you can come to help. We also would appreciate help taking down the art show at 7:15 on Thursday night.****

A Note From Ms. Swick

Hello Parents,

A message from Ms. Swick (the student teacher):
       Maybe some of you have heard, we have been busy learning about Force and Motion the last couple weeks. We have practiced the language of object's positions, such as behind, between, above, below, etc. We have had fun moving for motion. We've discussed push and pull, how to move things without touching them, and even gravity. The students have been predicting and experimenting with force and motion. We will continue with this science curriculum for the next week or two. I hope you hear a little more about Force and Motion at home.
    Additionally, I want to let you know that I will be "soloing" the next two weeks, which means that Mrs. Koch will be out of the room and I will be running the classroom on my own. It will be a transition for the kids (they love Mrs. Koch), so if you want to talk with your student more it will help her/him adjust to the change. I have been enjoying my time in the room and I look forward to the next couple of weeks!

Thank you,
Katie Swick
