birthdays, events, and "good to knows"
Tomorrow is Grandparent's Day! Grandparents or VIP's are encouraged and welcome to join us at KWH from 7:45-8:45. Breakfast will be provided. We would love to see you!
Next Wednesday, September 14, The second graders at K. William Harvey will be taking an all day field trip to the People's Center. We will get on the bus from school at 8:40, and we will return to the school at 2:45. Please make sure to sign your child's permission slip so they can attend this awesome event. Lunch will be provided by the school, as always :)
This is a really great opportunity for kids to learn about Native American awareness. Throughout the day, the students will visit up to 14 different stations. These will include arts and crafts, sporting events, cultural history and Salish stories, music, and cooking.
Last year, the running and screaming game was a HUGE hit! If you are interested in volunteering or attending this event, please don't hesitate to contact me! We would love to have you!
Hi there and thanks for stopping by! Today was a wonderful day! Your children have already mastered our three main class rules: Be respectful, Be responsible, and Be safe. Our transitions were smooth and our classroom was productive!
Homework will not begin until next week. The same goes for our reading and math curriculum. We will be doing a lot of "teach to's" throughout the next couple of weeks and it can take up a lot of time.
I hope you have all had a fabulous summer and that you are feeling refreshed and ready for another great school year! I can't wait to see all of those smiling faces! Back to school night will be taking place tomorrow, August 30th from 5:00-6:30. Barbecued foods will be provided and you are welcome and encouraged to come and check out the classroom! I hope to see you there!
This morning on my way to work I saw this mountain lion waiting right above a school bus stop. Apparently it was a yearling female and was later trapped by CSKT. The wildlife biologists are making sure it doesn't have any injuries due to its fall before releasing it back into the wild. It was quite a sight to see!
Happy April! I cannot believe how quickly the school year has flown by. We are already into our fourth quarter and summer will be here before we know it. With the warmer weather on its way, it can be harder for the students to stay engaged in class. Please remind your children to continue to try their very best.
Spring is coming!
Can you believe it is already February and we are into our 3rd quarter of school? I have noticed so much growth over the course of the year mentally, physically, and socially. I hope you are as proud of your kiddos as I am.
With the warmer temperatures and more distractions that spring brings, it is easy for all of us at any age to get a little "spring fever". In the classroom, I have noticed that the symptoms of this can include: lack of interest in schoolwork, fewer homework assignments being done, and lower test scores than normal. One way to remedy this is to encourage your students to continue to read and practice skills at home every night! Continue to check backpacks regularly for notes, homework assignments, or tests that have been graded. This will help remind your child that you have school expectations for them.
Glacier Field Trip
On February 25th, our class will be heading to Glacier for a snowshoeing field trip. We will be taking a bus with Mrs. Grave's class and we will be leaving right at 8:25. If your kiddo isn't on the bus at that time, we will unfortunately have to leave without them. This will be an amazing opportunity for our kids, so please take a moment to read carefully so you can make sure they are prepared!
1. Students MUST be on the bus by 8:25. We will return at 3:10 that afternoon.
2. Lunches will be provided for each student by the school.
3. The chaperone list filled up so quickly, that unfortunately there is no more room for adult chaperone volunteers. :( sorry.
4. Please make sure your child has the following: mittens, coat, hat, snowpants, and snowboots.
5. Permission slips MUST be turned in by Wednesday, February 24th. If I do not have a permission slip, they will have to stay behind. Please contact me if you need another permission slip.
