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.

We are going to Fog Willow Farm next month! Please turn in your permission slip and payment now. Student cost is $11.00. Chaperone cost is $4.00. Everyone receives a small pumpkin to take home. Chaperones must provide own transportation. Our bus will depart school at 10:45 AM and return at 1:45 PM. Students and chaperones will need to bring a small sack lunch including a drink.

If you want to purchase a special class photo from Fog Willow Farm, send a separate labeled envelope with $6.00 cash.

Minimum Day Soon!

Don’t forget that Friday, September 9th is a minimum day. All TK and K students will attend from 7:45 AM – 11:16 AM.

It is also our September Birthday Celebration. If you signed up to provide an item for this event, please bring it to school on Thursday. FYI: Adult helpers are still needed, so let me know if you can stay and help us have an extra fun day.

Carroll FunRun!

runner-27852_1280Our 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 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.***

What a Success!

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.

Olympic Day!

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.

If you are thinking about an end-of-the-year thank you gift for me or Mrs. Noya (completely voluntary, of course!), please consider an Amazon gift card. Any amount can be used towards so many things that are needed in the classroom to support us in integrating technology and making the best experiences available for learning.
