Dear TK Families,
You can now add items from home to your child’s Seesaw journal. Like everything with Seesaw, it’s easy! Download the Seesaw class app, scan the QR code I sent home on Friday, and with a couple of taps, your item is added. It’s a great way to connect home and school learning and you’ll end up with a wonderful digital scrapbook for your child’s TK year.
I will be available after school on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week to walk you through the steps. Plan to stay for a few minutes and try it out.
Our PTA is trying a new type of jog-a-thon fundraiser this year. We have partnered with The Fun Run team. They are on campus daily to manage prizes, pledges and continue to promote a healthy lifestyle. They have days dedicated to dance parties during recess, a time for students to be active and have fun. They have a website for easy pledge gathering, too. Go to www.CarrollFunRun.com and search for your child’s name to make a pledge. You can easily send the link to family and friends to request donations.
The main event will be on September 2nd. Our Fun Run time is 12:20 PM – 1:10 PM. Volunteers are needed to mark laps and hand out water. You can sign up on our Shutterfly site.
We are hoping to get 2-3 volunteers per teacher. If volunteers are willing/able to be of assistance during other run times, we would greatly appreciate the extra help.
***Starbucks coffee will be provided to all volunteers.***
We have published our first TKNews edition of the school year. We think you will find it interesting. Click on the TKNews tab above and look for the Mantis Report. Let us know what you think of it.
Dearest TK Families,
Thank you for making our Olypmic Day such a tremendous event! Eleven parents from just our class were able to make time in their schedules to join in the fun. Wow! Many parents and siblings from other kindergarten classes were also on hand to set-up, clean-up and supervise the games. Volunteers help make it all happen! And if you see Mrs. Deming, be sure to thank her because she pulled it all together, including the spectacular decorations. If you took some good photos, please add them to our Shutterfly album for all of our families to see.
Our Olympic Day is almost here! It is this Friday, August 5th. Class time is 7:45 AM – 11:16 AM. The events will run from 8:45 AM – 11:00 AM. We will be joining the kindergarten classes in the quad for an Opening Ceremony and some fun competition. Please wear red, white, and blue and secure shoes for running, jumping and hopping!
We still need parent volunteers to make this event safe and enjoyable. You can sign up on Shutterfly through the Volunteer tab.
