THIS WEEK IN SCHOOL
The kindergarten students are sliding into September! On August 21, the school had the chance to enjoy the solar eclipse. Kindergarten was in awe of this great phenomenon. Back in the classroom, students are preparing themselves for the school year by perfecting their names and working on their counting skills.
Please see the Behavior Calendar in your child’s fold each week for what we are learning.
Please contact your child’s teacher if you are interested in volunteering in the classroom.
