Surf's Up Kindergarten!
April Showers bring May flowers! This is exactly what I am noticing outside as I look out on the beautiful weather. As we wind down on the end of the school year there are a few things you can keep reminding your child of. Please remind them to be good listeners and to make good choices. Usually at this time of the year I see a lot of silly behavior, mainly because of the nice weather. We still have a lot of learning to do and that can only be accomplished with the children making good choices. Please refer to the homework calendar on the skills we are still working on and new skills that are just being introduced. Thank you for all your help this school year. It has been a great pleasure seeing your child blossom into a fantastic first grader.
