Mar. 3 - Morning Conferences

Dear Families,

We had our Kinder Prep Open House with new families yesterday morning and evening and it was a great time to see and get to know new students and families.  This week we will work on letter Q and the Heart as a shape. We will also will continue working on “The Family” Unit. You will be getting an All ABOUT ME poster to complete with your child. Please take a few minutes to do this with your child and send it back ASAP. They love to share things they have done with you in our class.

We at Kinder Prep also want to announce to you that two of our Kinder Prep teachers will be participating in the Polar Plunge in Forest Lake on February 25th. All the money that  people donate will be for the school. It is something fun, but also really risky, but they are ready to do that  and more for this school, so I want to encourage you to make a donation online in the following link:

Finally, we want to remind you that if your child is currently in Kinder Prep you do not  have to apply again for next school year. If you are planning to change the days to attend for next school year 2017-18, please email Blanca letting her know your new choice. If you are planning to attend the same days your child is right now, please pay the $40 Registration Fee through Fee Pay in order to save the spot. Again, thank you for helping us make this such a positive bridge between the caring and learning of home and school! We look forward to a fun and educational year and are so happy to know you will be part of it.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to email or call.
