A reminder from the office- next year’s student fees are due this Thursday, May 31st. The cost is $40/child. If it is not paid by this date, parents will be responsible for buying their child’s/children’s school supplies prior to the beginning of the school year.
Our End-of -the -Year Field Trip has been finalized. We will be going to King’s Castle in Murray River on Thursday, June 21st (rain date, June 22nd). If you are planning to join us, you are more than welcome to. Parents are required to have a criminal record check completed in order to volunteer to help out. If you would like to have a check completed, you can get a volunteer letter at the school office to take to the RCMP office at Maypoint Plaza and the check will be free. It usually takes a week for the results to come back.
Tickets for Spring Fling will be going on sale this week at the school but you can get tickets Friday evening too. Tickets are 50 cents each. The Spring Fling is a small carnival with games and activities at the school Friday June 1st.
Library is Tuesday so if you have any library books at home please return before Tuesday so your child can borrow another library book.
This week in KB:
Math- 3D shapes
Sight word- we will review /and/ said/
We will finish the 5 Senses unit this week.
I will be at a workshop on Friday and Ms. Chubby will be the sub that day. Please send any bus changes to the office and not to my e-mail to ensure she gets the information. Thank-you!!
–Supply fees are due by May 31. If you do not have this fee paid by this date, you will be responsible to purchase your child’s school supplies. As a parent and a teacher I will say that the $40 fee is actually a very good deal, so I want to encourage you to pay this fee on time. You can pay this either on line or send the money in with your child (I will send home a receipt). If there is an issue you need to discuss personally, please let me know.
-We are getting ready for our end of the year field trip to Kings Castle. If you are interested in joining us you will need a criminal background check on file with the school. I would encourage you to get this as soon as possible. We have a form at the school that can be sent home. Please let me know if you are interested.
Friday May 25th- There will be no KINDERGARTEN this Friday as it is the day next years children come to visit. Please note that every other grade does have school that day, only Kindergarten is exempt.
Also, it was pointed out the on the Glen Stewart Newsletter our field trip was scheduled for the 12 of June. This is incorrect. Our trip to Kings Castle will be JUNE 21.
This week in KB will be a review week. The sight word /said/ is the word we will review a little more!
A note from the office- If you have not paid your $40 school fee for next year, please do so ASAP.
Hope you had a great long weekend!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the GREAT mothers in KB!!

This week in KB:

I hope you and your family enjoyed the concert(s) last week!! The kids did a great job and they worked so hard!! Ms.Dalziel finished her practicum last week and she will graduating with her Bachelor Of Education next weekend! We enjoyed having her in our class and we will her!!! I am sure she will be back to visit and maybe even doing doing subbing for me!
Wow!! It’s hard to believe we only have two months left of Kindergarten! I like to save the “fun learning” and “active outside learning” for these last few weeks. Of course, we will still do reading, writing and continue with the Fundation every day!
We’ll starting learning about our 5 senses and 3D shapes!
Please review sight words with your child this will help with their reading and writing! We will focus on /and/ said/by/ this week.

Tuesday May 1st
This concert is a musical performance put on by the music teachers. We have 2 presentations of the same show. The first one is at 1:10pm and the evening one is at 6:00pm and both take place in the gym. You can come to both or pick the one that fits your schedule. We are the first group to go on stage so don’t be late or you’ll miss your child!!
1:10 Show- You come to the school and go to the gym. If you want to take your child home after the performance, you can pick him/her up in the classroom.
6:00 pm Show- The doors at the school will open at 5:30 and you have to take your child to our classroom and then go to the gym for the show! When the show is over, please come to the classroom to pick up your child. I am sorry to say that I will not be at the concert but Mrs.Chubbs and Ms.Dalziel will be here!!
We’re having a great time with Ms.Dalziel! She’s a wonderful and caring teacher and we will miss her when she leaves us. The children have enjoyed having her and she has been a great helper to everyone in KB! Her last day is Thursday May 3rd!!
At this time of year each student is working on their personal growth goals. Some students are working on telling a story (organizing their thoughts and making a picture) while others are writing 1 or 2 sentences to tell their story. The most important thing is everyone has made progress at their own pace. They still have 2 months of school and two months in the summer to prepare for grade one.
We will continue to talk about Earth Day and finish the Rainforest learning this week.
Kindergarten will have their Spring Concert Tuesday May 1st. They will do two performances that day. The first concert will take place in the afternoon and the second will be in the evening. More information will go home this week.
