We tried to squeeze in as much academics as possible this past week. Due to Champs Assembly and Grandparent’s Day practices we were out of the classroom quite a bit. This week we will continue practicing for our Grandparent’s Day performance and will continue last weeks lessons and activities that we have not completed. The Grandparent’s Day performance is going to be GREAT! All kindergarteners have worked extremely hard! We will do a dress rehearsal Thursday morning for the primary and for any parents that would like to come see it. Friday will be our official Grandparent’s Day performance! I will get the specific times sent home this week! We are so excited!
