Weekly Newsletter

Snapshot of the Week:
     Congrats to all the kinders who participated in Get Fit in May on Saturday! It was perfect weather and so great to see all of your smiling faces!
     We are already down to 17 days left of kindergarten! Now that we are in the last few weeks, we will be in preparation for 1st grade! We will be practicing digraphs (sh, th, ch, wh, ck), sight words and short readers, and also writing letters to our first grade teachers! I hope you'll join us for the MSS Open House on Thursday, May 25. The school book sale is from 5:30-7:30, and you can visit classrooms from 6-7:30. Not only is this a great time to check out some of your child's work, but it is also a perfect way to ease some anxiety about first grade; please visit some of the first grade classrooms during your visit! 
    Please note that our field trip to York's Wild Animal Kingdom will be on Tuesday, June 6th. Be on the look out for information coming home within the next few days.
