Apples, cherries, and strawberries

Before you cross the street.
Use your eyes.

From the

Teacher's Desk

       Our class will be hosting a student teacher from the University of Akron, Miss Lorine Napoli, for the first nine weeks of the school year. It will be wonderful for the children to have additional support and individualized attention during these first weeks of school. Please stop in to welcome Miss Napoli!

      There is a puzzle attached to help your child learn to spell the color word "red". Cut it apart and store it in a ziplock bag. There is also a tracing paper of your child's name. This is the correct way for your child to write his/her name. Please practice the "school way."
       If you did not already sign a
permission slip to have your child's picture published on our class website, please send it with your child tomorrow. I will only be using photos and first names--no last names. The children will be excited to see themselves on the computer monitor. If you don't have a computer, you can view our website at the Kenmore Library---
Thursday's homework
will be drawing a picture and completing a sentence about how your child got ready for kindergarten. There will be a note enclosed about the assignment.
