Attendance is very important here at the KC. Please make sure your child is in school every day if possible. If students are not in school, they are missing out on exciting lessons and wonderful learning experiences. If your child is absent for any reason, please make sure and send a Dr.’s excuse or a parent note in their agenda explaining why the student was absent.
If your child accidentally comes home with their blue clip-on badge, please return it to school the next day!
POLAR EXPRESS DAY
Students may wear pajamas to school. We will be drinking hot chocolate as we watch the movie, "Polar Express".

December 19 & 20 (See schedule)
Our Eagles are having lots of fun in specials creating, experimenting, exercising, singing, reading, and typing!
Art students have been busy creating lots of new masterpieces for the upcoming holidays. Please remember to look for your child’s artwork on www.artsonia.com . If you would like to learn more about Artsonia or have any questions, please contact Mrs. Wilks at email@example.com .
Our Eagles are learning so much about music while having a ton of fun. On the 50th day of school, we had our annual Sock Hop where we kicked off our shoes in the gym and learned dances like the Twist, Hand Jive, Stroll, and the Jitterbug. For the past couple of weeks we have been learning the difference between a steady beat and a rhythm, while utilizing our new interactive smart board. Our composer of the month is John Williams and we are exploring iconic musical examples from some of the most important films of our time. We are also playing various instruments in our Music Centers.
In PE, we collaborated with music for the Sock Hop and we have been busy jogging on the track and exercising with fun gym activities. Don’t forget to save your box tops and coke tabs. We will be having a contest in the Spring.
In Science we have learned about the Scientific Method, color mixing, force, and motion!
In computer, we have been learning new math skills every day and working on our numbers, shapes, patterns, sizes, and more with help from Imagination Station, or Istation for short. We are also exploring the many possibilities of online learning activities and have been able to bring our thoughts to life with the help of our keyboard and mouse. Right before Thanksgiving break we used our mouse to draw a picture of something we are thankful for and then used our keyboard to type a sentence and our names. We had fun sharing our creations with the class!
We have been working hard in the library this year. Many students were able to attend the READING ROCKS PARTY and enjoy a special treat from the Chick-Fil-A cow. They also enjoyed a fun story and dance party. You won’t want to miss the next party on Dec 7th, so keep reading at home and don’t forget your reading log.
