Thanksgiving Feast and Performance
Our feast and Thanksgiving Program will be on Wednesday, 11/16. More details to come. Look for emails from our wonderful room moms to help with our feast center preparation. As always, all students will attend the AM Session (7:45-11:38) on Wednesday.
Practice the speaking parts for the Thanksgiving Feast that will be sent home in your child’s homework this month. These parts are assigned to multiple children so please help your child memorize their part exactly as written.
To foster independence, we strongly encourage all of our Kindergarten students to use a tote bag, or messenger bag, rather than a backpack. Easy access without the difficulty of opening and closing zippers leads to student success and greater confidence. If you wish to show your school spirit, Wagon Wheel tote bags are available for $10.
Volunteers in Kindergarten make our program successful. Due to CUSD policy, all volunteers are required to complete the Live Scan (fingerprinting) and TB testing. This takes time to process and the district is adamant about protecting your children. We cannot emphasize the importance of getting this done ASAP.
PTA/ Kindergarten Music
We are very grateful to the Wagon Wheel PTA this year for funding our Kindergarten Music program. For the past 15 years kindergarten parents have participated in a Music Donation drive to cover part of the cost of having music by a Credentialed Music Teacher.
Please remember that the PTA dues are only $15.00 per family. They provide many wonderful programs in addition to our music program. Your participation is needed and appreciated.
Mrs. Nason will start our Kindergarten Music lessons on Tuesday, August 16th.
Our regular daily schedule (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday) is as follows:
Early Birds: 7:45 – 11:38 a.m.
Late Birds: 9:15 – 1:08 p.m.
We observe our Academic Collaboration for Excellence (ACE) schedule every Wednesday. The kindergarten schedule on ACE day is as follows:
Early Birds and Late Birds: 7:45 – 11:38 a.m. (All students come together on Wednesdays)
Parking Lot Safety
Please be advised that traffic can become quite congested and parking is limited. We highly encourage that you carpool and/or leave early, to allow enough time for parking. We suggest parking at the Sports Park, or in the neighborhood adjacent to the school. Parking stall numbers 1-9 on the right, as you enter the parking lot, and stalls marked 42 through 36 on the left side of the school parking lot are available for Visitor Parking only. Please do not park in the red curbed zone in the school parking lot or in the Bridle Path Cul-de-Sac.
Please remember that when dropping off or picking up your student, to be considerate and merge with others. Always use the crosswalk and watch carefully for pedestrians. Be respectful of stalls assigned for staff parking and reserved spaces.
