Important Requests

Dear TK Families,

Welcome back to school! I am excited to start our second trimester, how about you?

I have a couple of important requests. First, I have been unable to come up with coat racks for our class so I am solving the storage problem in a different way:

From now on, please do NOT send a backpack with your child. Just send a labeled snack bag daily. For occasional toileting accidents, send a change of clothes in a labeled Ziploc bag which will stay at school.

Also, our class is in need of additional volunteers. We have been so fortunate to have Miss Starla (Jalisia’s mom) as a daily helper for the entire first trimester. Unfortunately, she was injured in a fall and will be unable to participate for several weeks. Please check your schedule and let me know when you can volunteer. Click on the Volunteer link above to add yourself our Weekly Helpers or Special Guest Helper lists on Shutterfly. The most important times that need coverage are 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM.

Don’t Forget!

More Pumpkin Projects






We had such a fun week with our pumpkins. We estimated the number of seeds and counted every one of them! We will wait a little longer before we tell you the exact number. You really need to submit your guess. Be bold and post it in a comment below.

We had a BLAST with the Mini Pumpkin Challenge. We each had to build a block structure as tall as we could but, it had to support a mini pumpkin on top. Lots of pictures are posted on our Shutterfly Site. I hope you are inspired to try this as a family challenge at home. If you don’t have small wooden blocks, try using something else. But everyone has to use the same type of materials. Have fun! Post a few pics so we can enjoy it with you.
