It's hard to believe that November is already here and we are just finishing our first nine weeks in kindergarten! I am very happy with the progress that students have made so far. We have many things happening (and many days off!) over the next month. See below for a list of important dates. Also read the newsletter I will be sending home tomorrow for some information about our current topics and some programs that you can use at home.

The kindergarten teachers are having a math and literacy night on Thursday, October 20th from 6 to 7 pm. Please come for part or all of the sessions. You will get lots of materials that you can use at home to help your child with handwriting, decoding words, spelling, number sense and technology. You will start in our classroom (room 410) at 6:oo and then will rotate to the other four classrooms. I will have a conference sign up sheet available so you can choose a time to meet with me on our November 7th
conference day, if you haven't chosen one already. We hope to see you next Thursday!
