Welcome to Mrs. Mundy's Kindergarten!This note will be sent home on January 22...
We will be making Valentine’s Day boxes on Wednesday, February 6th.
Please cover a CEREAL BOX (with wrapping paper, contact paper, construction paper, etc.) and send it to school by Feb 5th. Please leave the top open for the valentines.
Please do NOT cut a hole in the middle. We will be decorating the rest of the box in class.
Our Valentine’s Day Party will be on Tuesday, February 12th. The children may begin bringing their Valentine cards to school on Feb 6th. The children should print their own names on the back of the cards. We will NOT be writing classmates’ names on the front of the cards. Please make sure that your child has 19 Valentines to pass out.
Notes from the teacher
Winter is here!! Please make sure your child dresses for snow (boots, hats, gloves & winter coat). We do go outside if it is 15 degrees or above, even when it is snowing!
Please remember to send a snack for your child each day.
December pictures of our class in action have been posted!
Please remember to return library books on Wednesdays! Thank you :)
PLEASE save cereal boxes for our Valentine's day project. Before you send the box to school, please cover it with some type of paper (wrapping paper, contact paper, construction paper, etc). These boxes will be for their valentines. We will decorate them at school; however, they need to be covered at home. Please leave the top open, do not cut a hole in the side; the top opening works best. Thank you!
Winter weather is here...please be sure that your chid has extra clothing at school (for puddles, spills, accidents & snow). If your child still has shorts & short sleeves at school, please trade them for long pants & long sleeves. Let me know if your child needs help with the trade out.
Reminder... We are collecting Box Tops for Education (our school gets money for each box top)!

Due to safety reasons, the children are not permitted to leave school with their parent(s) immediately after parties, special guest visitation, etc. If you wish to take your child home after any event, you will need to send a note to school and then you may pick him/her up after school in the parent pick line.
