We have been busy so far this year! We are in full swing with all of our learning times throughout the day. In Fundations, you will find us learning lots about letter names, sounds, and letter formations. In math, we are working with manipulative tools to learn how to sort, count, and compare objects. We also started our writing and reading workshop times. We are learning lots and having fun!

Important Dates:

  • September 15-Early Dismissal at noon
  • September 28-Open House: Come to school that evening (time to be determined) to see our classroom and what we are doing so far!
