Happy Thursday Parents! We hope everyone had a great week so far!
 
STEAM
Full Day Kindergarten will be starting our STEAM unit on Tuesday, February 20th until March 16th. Students will be going to an hour long session of STEAM each day during this time to discover what it’s like to be an engineer. This unit will be focusing on learning about and making simple machines. The students love this every year!

A Note from Mrs. Bostick
We are once again in that lovely time of year:  cold and flu season.  I would like to remind parents of the guidelines and policy for determining student attendance.  We ask that you take note of these and follow accordingly.
If your child is sent home, our school nurse or health assistant will take the time to speak with you and let you know exactly when returning to school is allowed.  While the guidelines may seem overly cautious, these are given to us by the district and health professionals and MUST be followed to ensure a healthy environment for all.
WHEN CAN A CHILD RETURN TO SCHOOL AFTER ILLNESS?
After 24 hours of medication for the following conditions:
-Strep throat
-Infected skin eruptions
-Other conditions requiring antibiotics
Exception:  If being treated for Pertussis, student must be on antibiotics for 5 days before returning to school
The student has been free of the following conditions for at least 24 hours:
-Fever (without benefit of fever-reducing medication)
The student has been free of the following conditions for at least 48 hours:
-Diarrhea
-Vomiting
Our number one priority is always the health, safety, and well-being of our students.  If you think your child may have any of these illnesses, please contact your health care provider, and do as you would want other parents to do, keep your kids home to prevent germs from spreading.  We appreciate your consideration and cooperation in these matters.
 
3rd Trimester Begins
We are finishing our 2nd trimester this Friday and our 3rd trimester starts on Monday.

History & Science
We will be starting our new science unit on motion and stability: forces and interactions unit. Students will be using all different kinds of balls, ramps and tracks to learn about motion and forces around us! This should be fun for all of us 
 
Dr. Seuss READING short book report
In honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday on March 2, your child will pick a Dr. Seuss book to do for a book report.  This book report is in place of the READING homework for next week.  It is for your child's reading class. Please have your child do ALL of the writing for this project. You will be receiving this book report project in tomorrow's Friday folders.  Please be on the look out for it!

 

Dress of Choice
Tomorrow is our last Friday for the month of February so it is our Dress of Choice day.

 
Sincerely,
The Kindergarten Team
