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.

Fun times at JCA

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanks to Mrs. Toukatly for the yummy and creative treats today.  Hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving! 

Readers to Leaders

Each nine weeks students are celebrated for reaching their reading goal.  Today we celebrated with a guest turkey.  Mrs. Phillips dressed in her finest turkey outfit read and danced with our kids and reminded then how important it is to read each day.  Remember that our nightly book in a bag is what counts towards our  reading count.  We hope that everyone can participate for the second nine weeks!
