February 1st Edition of
The K/1 Class News

Happy February Everyone!
It was an eventful week.

On Monday we worked on our printing, made some rain inspired artwork and welcomed Eli back from his trip to India! It’s so nice having you back Eli.   

Tuesday Mrs. Freeman taught the class while Mrs. Van Riel and Kaz were at an Early Literacy In-Service. The class wrote in their journals, welcomed baby Max back during Roots of Empathy and created more beautiful art.

On Wednesday we played math games, had an extra Roots of Empathy class and practiced alphabet knowledge during our outside time.

Thursday we learned about the “am” word family, Franky, Ava and Eli presented at Whole School Meeting and the kids went to Music. Later we worked on the school mural. On Thursday we also welcomed two new students, Jasmijn and Jan, into our class. We are all excited to have them here and look forward to getting to know them better.

As many of you have probably heard by now, Ms. Mullen will be away for three months starting February 14th recovering from a wrist surgery. Kaz will be acting as principal during Marie’s absence. We are thrilled to welcome Ms. Klare back as the successful candidate to teach our class on Mondays, while Kaz is covering for Marie. It should be a very easy transition for the kids as they all know and love Ms. Klare.

Thanks to everyone for getting on board with the home reading program. The kids are always happy to pick a new book to take home each day. Remember that the reading time at home should be an enjoyable experience and a good excuse to snuggle up for a few minutes and read together. Don’t worry if you miss a night, it should be stress free.

A reminder that Family Math Night is coming up on Thursday, February 8th. Families are welcome to come to the gym and explore math games and puzzles in the Math Playground. We will have a short information session for parents to learn about how math instruction has changed and how parents can support their children in math learning at home. The Math Playground will be open in the gym from 6-7:30 pm and we will have the parent info session around 7 pm. We hope that many of you join us for this event.

Important dates to remember:
February 8 Family Math Night
February 12 Family Day (no school)
February 14 Valentines Day/class party
February 16 School in session
February 28 Pink Shirt Day
