Early Childhood

Mrs. Jane Beaty and Ms. Adriana Schilace

April 17, 2017

We have an exciting week planned. On Tuesday, April 18, we have an inhouse field trip of a theatrical performance of the childhood classic, The Little Prince. Also this week, our guidance counselor, Rhonda Payne, will also be presenting the Safe Touch program, and Spring pictures will be taken on Wednesday, April 19. If you send students to school in their best picture clothes, be sure to send play clothes for them to change into after pictures have been taken.

Spirit Week has been scheduled for May 1-5, culminating in Field Day on May 5, and the Mayfest picnic on Saturday, May 6. Please look for more information to come.

The kindergarten students will be taking the Stanford Achievement Test the week of April 24-28. Please talk to your child about the test so that they do not feel stressed out about it. Usually, we start the test first thing on Monday morning, and work on it for about an hour to an hour and a half each morning. We usually finish before Friday. While the kindergarten students are testing, the younger students play on the playground for an extended period. We are hoping for a week free of rain!

We will continue to study the solar system, phases of the moon, and constellations, and have also begun to study the continents of North and South America.

Have a great week!
