Happy National Kindergarten Day!

District 101 president: Residents rejected extended-day kindergarten

Today is National Kindergarten Day!  This day was established to honor Friedrich Froebel who started the first kindergarten in Germany in 1837.

Kindergarten today continues to be a special place in which children learn and grow while they sing, build, dance and play together!

Mrs. Hoyt and Ms. Miliano have missed our friends during the April vacation week and look forward to digging into more fun next week as we begin a planting unit!

Reminders -

Please return zoo permission forms.   Also, please check student folder for recent invitations.  We are welcoming parents to help us with our community helpers unit, are reaching out to make connections with friends throughout the world and invite you to help us make contacts, and continue to invite you to volunteer in our classroom. You contributions to the home school connection are most appreciated!

We would love a few supplies to help us in the homestretch of the year:
Chalk (2 or 3 small containers)
Shaving Cream - 3-4 cans of an inexpensive brand
Water Balloons  -
     - We need the balloons and will welcome volunteers to help fill them at a later date!
2-3 rolls of Bounty paper towels
2-3 boxes of tissues
wet wipes - we strive to contain our germs and messes!

The most valuable contribution of course is you and your time!    We are in need of additional help with our upcoming trip to the zoo on May 19 and will be seeking volunteers for a variety of June activities!   Be sure to let Mrs. Hoyt know of your availability right away!
