We had a great first day in Kindergarten! We went over a lot of rules and procedures, but were able to have some fun, too. Click on the Gallery page to see for yourself! We read Pete the Cat Rocking in My School Shoes, searched for Pete while touring the school, and even made Pete the Cat. We read The Kissing Hand and talked about how we felt on our first day of school. They also had Spanish and Choice Time.
Hello! Just a handful of days until school will be in full-swing! I really enjoyed meeting with each of you one-on-one. I have a great feeling about this group! Here are a few reminders and what to expect on the first day of school.
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL REMINDERS
Please return all written Independent Study work in your child's Independent Study folder tomorrow morning. There will be a tub right outside the back door to put the folders into.
If you have not turned in your class supplies and/or the required parent paperwork and beginning of the year forms, please make sure to bring those in as well.
Please remember a snack, water bottle, and a lunch! It is helpful if your child knows which item is intended for their snack. I will encourage them to eat one item for snack, and leave the rest for lunch.
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL PROCEDURE
When you bring your child in the morning, please walk them around the side of the school and into the back. Have your child put their Independent Study into the tub, hang up their backpack, and take out their lunch and water bottle and set it on the shelf. After that, they can play until the whistle blows.
When the whistle blows once, all children will freeze and listen for directions. When the whistle blows twice, they will stand on a colored dot at the front of the group.
On this first day, you are welcome to walk in with the kids, help them find their seat, and then head out the front door. I am aware that this will be a tough goodbye! I promise to give lots of hugs and keep them busy so their first day is fabulous.
We are out at 1:00. You are welcome to wait out front by the benches or wait at the curb in your vehicle. If you choose to wait in front of the classroom, you must park in a parking spot so the pick-up lane is not blocked.
Thank you for taking the time to be informed!
Our first day of school and orientation is NEXT WEDNESDAY, August 19th. Session one and two will be identical. We provide two sessions for families with more than one child. During the sessions I will ask for volunteers and give you the run-down of kindergarten. I am looking forward to a GREAT year!
Our schedule is as follows:
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
I'm thrilled to be teaching my sixth year at HRCCS! I went to Chico State where I received a BA in Liberal Studies, a Minor in Latin American Studies and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I taught 3rd/4th for eight years at a multi-age, project-based, performing and visual arts school in my hometown of Stockton. My husband and I moved to Auburn in 2007 to be close to the trails and raise our children, Robby (9) and Amaya (4). I enjoy painting, cooking, working in the yard, and eating my way through San Francisco.
