Dear Students and Parents,
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Please be sure to send in your child's End of Year forms as well as their Graduation Fee! Thanks so much.
We are also very excited about Field Day! If you have not sent in your child's permission slip, please do so ASAP!
We are asking that you please send in your child's math homework book by Monday- this is the blue book that they have been using all year at home.
Please remember to send your child in with some type of jacket. We do go outside each day (weather permitting) and it can be chilly.
**We are still in desperate need of supplies!**
Still needed for May/June:
-Gallon of water
-DONATION OF COPY PAPER PLEASE!!!!
We had our final spelling test of the year last week! I am so proud of all their hard work! This does not mean that they should stop studying their words! Please continue reviewing all of their words each night. Also, it is just as important for your child to be able to write their sight words as it is to read them!
Please remember to check our class web page for any news and updates about what is going on in our class! Also be sure to check our school website and calendar for any important updates!
-CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION MUST BE IN WRITING!
-Please label your child's HEALTHY MORNING SNACK with the letter "M" on it.
- Remind your child about the importance of staying safe in our classroom. This means we keep our hands on our own bodies, we sit criss-cross applesauce, hands in our laps, and we raise our hand to leave our seats.
- Remind them to ALWAYS ask for help.
-Please practice writing their name (first and last) with only the first letters being uppercase letters.
- When writing, please ONLY use pencil! Unless the directions say to color, we ONLY write with pencil :)
**PRACTICE LETTER/SOUND RECOGNITION EVERY DAY!!**
-Remember to have fun while learning!
This week in K-2:
We will be reviewing all concepts learned this year as well as introducing some new concepts they will see in 1st grade. Please, please, please continue to practice number recognition with numbers to 100. Addition and subtraction skills to 10 should also be reviewed at home. Making flash cards helps them a lot! They should also work on counting to 100 by 10's and 5's. There are great songs on YouTube that can help make this easier for them! Remind your child, "When we write teen numbers, the 1 goes first!"
Stories of the Week: End of School Stories/Summer Stories
Letter of the Week: REVIEW
Sight Words: REVIEW
Phonics Skill: REVIEW

**We are working very hard on our phonics skills in class. It is very important that you continue to practice this at home as well.**
We will begin learning Memorial Day!
We will continue learning about Jesus' mother, Mary, during the month of May. We will also begin learning about the Rosary. The children will also learn about Ascension Thursday and Pentecost.
If you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me! E-mail is a great way to get in touch with me, but you can always call the main office and leave me a message. I will get back to you as soon as I can!
Here's to a great year!
