Our room parents have been working hard to prepare for the Winter Party next week. Please be sure you are receiving emails to help out and provide supplies.Tuesday will be the Jack Frost Jog and Jam along with the winter festivities. We will not have any written homework this week but will have a few assessments to wrap of units of study in Social Studie and Science. We will go ahead and complete the math MAP test this Monday. For any students that will not be here and will need to make it up, Mr. Buffkin will pull them after winter break. We will take our Main Idea Test Monday and Ancient Greece and Rome Test will still be Tuesday.
Thursday, January 31st; 5:30-7:00 PM, Kaechele’s Annual International Festival: We are asking families to sponsor a “booth” to share their personal connections and/or interests in a country from around our globe. Help our KES coyotes become Global Citizens and become active participants in a larger society by building global awareness and demonstrating respect for fellow community members. If interested in hosting a booth or volunteering in some aspect during this event, then please contact Ramnita Sandu email@example.com or Parnita Singh firstname.lastname@example.org
Henrico Christmas Mother has been extended to the 18th – we hope you will support our school and our community during this week of Dec. 10-18. This year, our SCA is asking for your help in supporting the Henrico Christmas Mother by asking students to donate at least $1 each day. I hope you will consider supporting this SCA project.
Please be advised it is an expectation that KES students go outside for recess everyday. Please keep this in mind when your child dresses for the school day. All students should come to school with the appropriate coats, hats, gloves, shoes, etc. to play outside each day. Students are not allowed to stay inside during recess time. If there are specific medical needs, and you are concerned that your child is unable to go outside, then please send in a doctor’s note to our school nurse, Ms. Mlynczak. She will follow up with you and with the classroom teacher regarding the medical need. If you have questions or concerns about this expectation, then please feel free to contact Mr. Buffkin or Mrs. Patterson.
