First Grade Here We Come!

Dear K2 Families,

 

It is with mixed feelings I compose my last newsletter to you all.

 

On one hand I am feeling sadness at the passage of time and of “losing” my little Smarties. I will miss them tapping on my window each morning, eager to start the day. I will miss their happy voices when we sing our morning songs! I will miss their small hands and their giving hearts! I will miss their tenacity when it comes to learning something new! I will miss their struggles to figure out how to be a friend, and their twinkling eyes when they tell me a story or discover something new. It saddens me to think that in the years to come they might not say “hi” to me at the grocery store, having forgotten all about this magical year.

 

On the other hand, I am beaming with pride! I am so proud of each of my avid readers, and my mathematicians! I am jumping for joy for my writers that have persevered and can write a story now! I am doing a happy dance because the children created a community of love and compassion for each other! I am thrilled with their accomplishments and their love for learning! I am grateful to have been part of this important and impressionable time in their young lives.

 

Families, I will miss each one of you. 

I truly have been blessed to have taught each and every unique child that was placed in my room last August. I am grateful for having had this opportunity to travel together along this special road called kindergarten!

 

Please stay in touch and come by and see me in the years to come! 

 

With much gratitude, - Katherine

I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate with you through notes, telephone calls, weekly newsletters, emails, and parent-teacher conferences. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. The best way to contact me is through my school's email:

Dear Parents,



This month's Scholastic Book Club flyers are ready for you to explore with your child. Children read more when they choose their own books, so I encourage you to look at the flyers together.

You can return the order form and payment to me, or give online ordering a try. It saves time, offers more book choices, and earns extra rewards for the classroom!

 Happy reading,

Katherine Welcomer
