Welcome New Families!

July14

Welcome to IC Imagine Kindergarten!

I am so excited to meet each one of you and to have you in my class this year! We will have fun together, learn together and build a wonderful new community.

I hope to see you at open house on Monday, August 6th. Time TBA.

Check out my classroom Amazon Wish List.  There are a few items that are a higher priority for the school year.

Check out the snack calendar to find out when your day is! Please bring in enough healthy snack for 21 students on your designated day. Your champion will be provided with a healthy snack daily around 1:00pm.

Please remember how important attendance is in the first 20 days of school. An average of our student attendance determines how much funding we will receive for the school year. There will be lots of fun stuff happening in the classroom that your champion will not want to miss!

 

Looking forward to a great year!

Nature Center

April23

Our Nature Center field trip is this Thursday! It is a 50% chance of rain and high in the mid sixties. Half this field trip is walking around outside so PLEASE send your champion in appropriate clothing for the weather.

Bring:

-a jacket and/or rain coat

-close toed shoes

-disposable lunch and utensils

-disposable water bottle

 

Chaperones need to check in at school and then can meet us there! We have a lot of chaperones this time so that the walk around groups are small! It should be a great time!
