    Welcome to the Jungle in KA!    


  Mr. Monkey Rotation
Our class animal this year is a monkey named Coconut. Our class monkey will be sent home with a student to spend the weekend with friends and family. You and your child can draw a picture or take pictures with the monkey and journal about your time spent over the weekend so it can be brought back the following with the class.
 
Snack Rotation 
Your child will have the opportunity to bring a snack a day for a week. The snack bucket will be sent home with your child the Friday before the child's snack week. Please keep in mind our school is a PEANUT-FREE school and is not allowed to have snacks with peanuts in them or snacks that have been processed in a place that has had contact with peanuts. Please provide a snack that is quick and simple for your child to distribute to the class and enough for the attached KA Class List. Drinks are not necessary but welcome. Also remember to send any utensils necessary for serving your snack (spoons, plates, cups, napkins, etc).

KA's Prayer Intentions
Your child will have the opportunity to be assigned a week to choose a person/intention they would like our class to pray for for a week. We will pray for these people/intentions at home as well as in our classroom. Parents, please email me by the Friday prior to your child's assigned prayer intention week to let me know what we can pray for and I will list it here for the parents to write on their child's prayer card. Remember, there are 7 crosses for each day to pray for this specific intention. Have your child color a cross each day they complete their prayer each day for our class's intention.
