Fund Run Was a Fun Run

What a great kickoff to our school year.  Thank you for all your support through our FundRun this year.  Our class raised around $1500!  AWESOME!  We won two parties - a dance party and a water balloon fight.  Although the day was very hot, the kids did an amazing job running and sticking with it.  Here are some highlights.

Up Up and Away - well almost!

Welcome to the first day of school.  Today the kids got to see a real hot air balloon.  Although the plan was for it to take off with Mrs. Philliips inside - the wind was too rough.  It was exciting though just to see one up close and watch them inflate it.  Hope your child had a great first day.

The end is near!

Only a couple more weeks of school and your little ones will become first graders.  Can you believe the year is almost done?  This summer have your child keep a journal of their day- it's a great way to keep them writing and save good memories!

Time to Celebrate Eric Carle

What a fantastic unit we have had reading Eric Carle books.  The kids have loved reading the many, many books.  To end the unit all kindergarteners had a fun day doing activities related to Eric Carle.  We made shirts earlier in the week and they turned out so cute!

We had pancakes and a movie, made caterpillar necklaces, and then played Eric Carle bingo. During the afternoon we  made fireflies out if band-aids and click beetles.

Dental Health

February is Dental Health Month.  This year we were lucky to have a mom from the Mallard's class come to educate us.  She did an awesome job of showing us how to take care of our teeth daily and the right foods that help keep our teeth healthy.  She even brought us all a new toothbrush.
