What’s Happening Around Town
I feel I must begin this letter with my deep, heart-felt thank you for your tremendous support and encouragement over the past couple of weeks! Though you may not be aware,I’ve been struggling with chest pain for a month now and have felt burdened with leadership responsibilities during kin-dergarten round-up, so the incredible acts of service and love you have demonstrated have been a blessing!, and aswe have wrapped up this last week of March, I have thor-oughly enjoyed teaching your child and just basking in the ex-citement of learning new things about the last days of Jesus’life here on earth as well as His death and resurrection!Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to teach your child! I count it a tremendous privilege!This week, we completed our second set of special sound flashcards, and we now know over 30 special sounds. It makes the English language seem very complicated to me!The students are using their knowledge of special sounds to write words and organize those words to express their ideas!We look forward to continued progress in reading and writing!Have a blessed Resurrection Sunday!Miss Hult Answers to Questions on the Ranch A: Grandparents are invited to join their grandchildren for a day of school on Friday, April 20. A short presenta- tion for grandparents will be held in the auditorium from 8:30 - 9:00, at which time they will head to the classroom to enjoy the morning with us. At 11:00 a,m., we will gath-er in the gym for a program, and at 11:50 a.m., studentswill be dismissed for the day. Permission slips came home today and must be signed and returned if your child will be allowed to go home with his/her grandparent(s).A: All year we have been working on showing respect bybeing good listeners and waiting for our turn to share, but we continue to struggle much with this area. Therefore, thisweek, each child received a penny cup, which has five penniesin it. As we go throughout our day, we try to keep our pen-nies by raising our hand, waiting for permission to speak, and using self-control. If a student is blurting out or talkingwith a neighbor while someone else is speaking, the student must place a penny in my penny jar. We count and restock pennies in our cups multiple times throughout the day. Stu-dents will be able to use the “money” they have earned bybeing respectful at a class store in the next couple of weeks!
