    FATHER’S DAY BBQ

    We will have a Father’s Day BBQ Friday May 31 from 9-11:30am.  It will be similar to the Mom’s Day Brunch.  Kids need to bring the following on Friday May 31:

    • 2nd graders bring 15 beverages (individual lemonades, juice, etc)

    THE NEXT LEVEL OF READING IN KINDERGARTEN:

    We will continue marking vowels this week.  So far in our curriculum, we have studied words that have one vowel (a,e,I,o,u).  Now we will begin words with two vowels.  Here is the rule for two-vowel words:

    1. When a word has 2 vowels (a, e, i, o, u) then the FIRST vowel says its NAME and the SECOND vowel is silent.  Kids will put a straight line on top of the first vowel and cross the second vowel out.
    2. Example of two-vowel words:   time  gate  game  fine  bead  rain  heat
    3. Short-vowel words are marked with a ‘smiley’ face over the vowel:  dog  him  ran

    SILVERWOOD READING TICKET HAS CHANGED: Silverwood no longer participates in “Reading is the Ticket” free ticket program.  They now use “Read to Ride.”  Our school has applied to participate in this program and is waiting to hear back from the Silverwood organization.  There may be a chance that they do not respond to our request this year, which is common in such large reading initiatives.  It took several years for our school to become a part of the former reading initiative.  If we do not get accepted this year, we hope our name is placed at the top of the list for the 2019-2020 school year session.  We will keep you informed of our progress as details unfold.

    STRING FOR GLOVES – We are recommending everyone do the following with their child and their gloves/mittens: Get a long piece of string, ribbon, or yarn that you match to the length of your kid’s wingspan.  Tie the string to both mittens/gloves (you may need to make a small hole and a knot, but it’s worth it in the longrun).  Then run one mitten/glove and the string through both sleeves of the coat.  The mittens/gloves will then just hang out the bottom of the sleeves and we will spend less time searching for lost gloves.

    SNOW CLOTHES: Hate to say it but it’s time to get those snow clothes packed and ready!!  When snow is on the ground, kids need ALL FIVE THINGS to go outside.  All five things means: winter coat that zips, hood/hat, snow pants, snow boots, gloves; kids who do not bring their snow things will have to sit in the preschool during recess (which is not is much fun as playing outside).  Kids can also prepare to bring sleds for recess.  All sleds need their name in permanent marker in BIG LETTERS.

    PLEASE NOTE CALENDAR DATE CHANGE: The Christmas Program date has been changed to Dec 15 because of facility availability.  Please mark the date change in your calendar.  

    FOOD POLICY: Please note the following change regarding food policies: If your child will be at school during breakfast or lunch, please DO NOT send the following food/drink items: hot chocolates, Gatorade, any colored drinks, pizza lunchables, cinnamon roll lunchables.  We have had bad experiences with these items in the past; as a result, they are no longer allowed in the building.
