May 29 - May 31

THANK YOU to everyone who came to Blue Pod's Awards Day!  The kids all did a great job and we are so glad you were able to share this special day with your child.
This will be a short week for us as we wrap up the school year.  Tuesday is Center Day.  The kids do not need to bring anything special for this day.  We will be spending all day playing in centers.
Wednesday is Field Day/Room Cleaning Day.  Our Field Day time is 9:40 - 10:45. After Field Day and lunch, we will be spending time cleaning our room!
Thursday is the last day of school!  We will be releasing students at 12:30!  Cars and buses will dismiss at the same time.  On this day, students do not need to bring anything with them to school.  They will not need backpacks, folders, or snacks.  You can also come pick up your child's report card on this day until 12:15.  We do not want to send these home with the students as they will not have anything to carry it in.  If you know you will not be able to come pick up your child's report card, or you know your child will not be at school this day, please send in a self addressed stamped envelope (with TWO stamps) and we will put their report card in the mail.  Otherwise, please make plans to come pick up the report card.  If it is not picked up by the end of our day, report cards will be placed in our mailboxes in the office.  You can come pick these up when the school is open during the summer. 
Thank you to everyone for a great school year!  I hope you all have a wonderful summer and I will see you next year!

May 21 - May 25

I hope you are all having a great weekend!
This week we will start our theme days.  A letter was sent home last week detailing each day and what your child will need for those days.  A letter for Honor's Day was also sent home last week.  If you are unable to provide what your child's teacher asked please let us know immediately so we can plan accordingly.  Here are the theme days for this week!

Monday: Game and Toy Day
- Please allow your child to bring in one game or toy to share with the class and play with for the day.  Please make sure it can fit into their backpacks.  NO electronic toys please!

Tuesday: Summer Fun Day
- In the morning we will be doing different activities with bubbles, beach balls, sidewalk chalk, and sand.  If you can send in any beach balls, bubbles, or sidewalk chalk, it would be greatly appreciated!  That afternoon we will be celebrating the summer birthdays.  If your child has a summer birthday and you would like to send in a treat for the class please let your child's teacher know immediately so we can plan.

Wednesday: Arts and Crafts Day
- We will be rotating classrooms and working on different crafts in each room.  If you have not sent in your child's 3 white t-shirts from the beginning of the year, please send in a white t-shirt by this day so they can participate.

Thursday: PJ and Movie Day
- Children can wear their pajamas today!  They may also bring a small pillow and stuffed toy to have with them today.  We will be watching G-rated movies today and will be enjoying a snack together.  Please send in one FULL SIZE box/bag of one of the following items: popcorn, M&Ms, teddy grahams, goldfish, pretzels, etc.

Friday: Honors Day
- Honors Day is finally here!!  This is a special day for the kids.  We will have a small program in our classrooms and each child will receive an award.  After the programs, we will enjoy brunch together in our pod and classrooms.  Please don't forget to bring your food item!  After the program and brunch, you are allowed to check your child out without it effecting their attendance in any way.  This day is a special day for your child, so plan something special!  Your child will also be bringing home all of their supplies and things out of their cubby today.  We hope to see all of you there!

On Thursday, May 31, it will be the children's last day of school!  This will only be a half day.  If you know that your child will not be at school, please send in a self addressed stamped envelope (with two stamps) so we can mail your child's report card to you!  If you do not want it mailed, please come and pick up your child's report card from the classroom.  Any report cards not picked up will be placed in your teacher's mailbox at the end of the day.  Children do not need their backpacks or folders on this day.  Many bus drivers won't let them on the bus with those things.  

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!  Have a great week!

Dinosaur Dig

I am sure that you have heard a lot about dinosaurs this past week!  We had our Dinosaur Lab this week in the Blue Pod.  We used our four classrooms and our pavilion outside.  We had an art room, a math and science room, a puzzle and book room, and a dramatic play room.  Outside we got to dig for dinosaur bones!  We used hammers, chisels, brushes, and of course goggles when we were digging for bones.  The kids had a great time and found some bones.  Enjoy the pictures!

April 30 - May 4

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Tomorrow is our field trip!  We are so excited to go to the zoo.  If you are a chaperone, please be in our classroom at least 10 minutes before we leave (8:30).  We will need some help getting our lunches from the lunchroom and our coolers ready to go.  Please make sure your child is at school on time!  We will be leaving at 8:30. 

On Tuesday, May 1st, we will have our last DIBELS test of the year. Please make sure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before and eats a good breakfast that morning!

Progress Reports were sent home last Thursday.  If you have not done so, please sign and return these as soon as possible!

On Friday, May 25th, we will be having our Honors Day Program and Brunch. The program will start at 8:30 in your child's classroom. After the program, we will have brunch in our pod to celebrate with each other. Each child gets an award and special treat from their teacher. This is an important day for the kids as we celebrate their accomplishments and completion of Kindergarten. I hope to have someone there for every child! Go ahead and add this date to your calendars.

As the weather gets hotter, we all want to start wearing our sandals and flip flops! However, please make sure that your child wears their tennis shoes to school. We have PE first thing in the morning and children are required to wear tennis shoes to PE, not flip flops. Your child may bring those to change into after PE.

Please also make sure that your child has a snack and juice, or money for each, every day. We've had a lot of children lately who do not have snack, money for snack, or they say they have forgotten their snacks at home. Please make sure your child has this daily!
I hope you all have a great week!
