Quiet Time blankets will be sent home at the end of each month (once a month) to be washed. Please make sure to return your child's blanket back to school after it is washed so your child has it for Quiet Time.
St. James will be participating in the Terry Fox Run. Our students will walk/run on Tuesday, Sept. 26 2017 from 9:30-10:00 am. We are asking for a small donation of $2 (aka- A Toonie for Terry) towards the Terry Fox Foundation. Kindergarten students will walk on school grounds. If you are able to volunteer, please write a note in your child’s agenda. Everyone is welcome...the more the merrier!
It has been a great start to the school year! The kids are all settling nicely and are learning the routines. We have seen tears in the morning from some of our students as they say goodbye to their parents. Once they are busy in the classroom, these tears quickly turn to smiles and inquiring minds. As a parent, it's hard not to worry about our little ones but please don't worry! They are in good hands! We promise to love and nurture all of them as if they are our own.
We have our snack times and lunch time all sorted out and no one has mistakenly eaten their sandwich for breakfast!! Just a reminder to ensure that no nut products come to school or anything that contains sesame seeds. We have a severe allergy to nuts and sesame seeds in the classroom.
The students have been busy so far with discovering and exploring the different centres and activities in the classroom. We are all working on collaborating with our classmates and spreading kindness in the school.
With the cooler temperatures in the morning, please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately. We stay outside for outdoor learning first thing in the mornings so a thin sweater or hoodie will keep them warm.
The children have done a great job self regulating at snack time. When they hear their tummy rumbling, they have done a fabulous job eating a healthy snack in the morning. No one has eaten their sandwich at snacktime...yet!!! Please ensure all food coming to school is nut-free.
Please send in a change of clothes for your child to keep in their cubby in case of an accident (pants, underwear, shirt and socks). Accidents do happen in Kindergarten so it's important to have a spare set just in case!
Family Photos Needed - Please make sure to send in 2 copies of your family photo so we can add them to our family wall and our photo album in the safe place. Please make sure to put your child's name on the back of the photo.
If you have a question or note, please put it in the communication book. Keep the book open so we know there's a note for us. If the book is closed, we will not see the note.
Please make sure to follow our class on Twitter ( @k3kinders117 ) to see what we are learning in room 117.
