Kindergarten News

In Phonics this week we will be working on digraph ch as in cheese and digraph ee as in sheep. Continue to practice all digraphs, combinations, and letters learned. We will NOT have Show & Tell.

Monday, May 24th will be the PTO Carnival. This is a day of fun and games put together by the PTO. Please dress your child for the weather and apply sunscreen as needed. Students should wear sneakers and clothes for outdoor activities (NO dresses or skirts please!)

**Bicycle Rodeo permission slips are required for student participation.

***Due to the Carnival the cafeteria will only be serving deli hoagies –

there will be NO alternate lunch choices on Monday.

Tuesday is the big day! Kindergarten Graduation will be held in the High School Auditorium on Tuesday, May 25th beginning at 6:30pm. Doors will open @ 6:00 PM. The program will begin at 6:30 sharp so please keep that in mind and allow time to park and find a seat. Students who are graduating will need to report to the gymnasium. There are no reserved seats or a limit to the number of guests per student, therefore, seating is on a first come first serve basis!

Kindergarten Graduation DVD orders and money are due no later than Wednesday, May 26th. If you are interested in purchasing a DVD, the cost is $8.99 (checks made payable to Legal-eze) Orange order forms were sent home earlier in your child’s folder.

**Students will be wearing caps and gowns for graduation. Students are asked to wear a white collared shirt. Shoes will be visible so plan accordingly. Girls are reminded not to wear items in their hair, since they will be wearing a cap. (Pony tails and hair accessories will get in the way of the caps sitting flat.)

**Students will be exiting the auditorium and going to the gym after the performance. Parents can look for their child in the gym by class/teacher.

PLEASE NOTE: Graduation caps and gowns must be returned to the teacher after the graduation ceremony. Tassels are to be taken home as a keepsake.

Kindergarten will practice for graduation on Tuesday, May 25th in the morning at the High School. Please try to have your child at school for this practice so he/she will know what to do for the evening ceremony. Students will be walking to the high school, so please dress your child in shoes for walking and a jacket with a hood or an umbrella in case of rain.

FYI: Due to the Carnival on Monday there will be NO Special Classes and Tuesday, May 25th will be DAY 3 on the rotation schedule.
