Visit from the Pumpkin Fairy!


We had an exciting day in Kindergarten today!  Someone forgot to take us to the pumpkin patch so the Pumpkin Fairy came to help us!  We spread fairy dust and poof the pumpkins appeared before recess on our field outside!   Tomorrow we will do all kinds of fun activities with our pumpkins.  Woo Hoo!!!

C’est moi la belle citrouille!!!!!

Happy October!

We all survived the first month of school and the transition to full day Kindergarten!  Whoopee!!!  The children are adjusting to the routines and are working at learning how the school day works.   We are hearing some French and are excited by their progress so far.   Thanks for all your cooperation with the routines.  It makes our day function so much more successfully when the children are prepared and helps them to see how school works and ultimately helps them to learn.  I cannot stress enough how important routines are for children.   A reminder about library day;  please have your child keep their library book and cahier in their library bag–not the blue folder and only have them bring the library bag to school on Mondays, which is our library day.   Also please remember to empty out their blue folder on a daily basis.  The children can get confused about what to give us in the classroom if they have things from previous days in their folders.

The school is in the process of straightening out our email accounts.  I have been receiving emails but have not been able to respond and I apologize for this glitch.  I believe that I am now able to respond so please feel free to email me if you are unsure of something or have any questions or want clarification on any issues.   I am also going to make a group email for us so that I can email you if necessary.  I will let you know when I have done this.

You will be receiving your second newsletter from us today in your child’s dossier bleu.  On it you will see the vocabulary we have learned for our current alphabet letters and also our alphabet chants.    Please help your child review the vocabulary and alphabet chants a few minutes per day.  It will help us out so much more in the classroom.   You will also receive the October scholastic order.  If you would like to order scholastic  please use a cheque and not cash as we cannot send cash in the mail.   If you ordered in September, your child received their books yesterday.

Thanks to all of you who have sent in your child’s walkathon pledge sheet.   The children are excited to do the walk and have been excited to receive their t shirts.   If you haven’t yet sent in the pledge sheet you can do so at any time and we will send it back to you along with a t shirt for your child.   You need not send in the $ in order to get the t shirt.

Thanks so much for all your cooperation so far!   It’s coming together!
