Please keep transportation changes to a minimum. All transportation changes must be put in writing in the agenda and received by 2:00 P.M. Please do not leave voicemail messages concerning transportation changes.
**We do not make bus to bus changes.**
If your child accidentally comes home with their blue clip-on badge, please return it to school the next day!
We encourage you to send valentines for the entire class. This is not a party; we do not have guests, but teachers do make it a special time for students to share valentines with one another.
GO TEXAN DAY: FEBRUARY 22, 2019
Go Texan Day has been a tradition since the 1950's and is celebrated across Houston each year the Friday before the rodeo parade. We encourage you to send your little cowboy/cowgirl in their Western clothes to honor the Texas tradition.
Please see additional handout regarding magnetic letter activities that you can complete at home with your child.
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.
Fish friends are currently very busy learning all about winter and snow. In Mrs. Fagg’s class we are enjoying winter centers, especially labeling and writing the parts of a snowman. In Mrs. Waterloo’s class we are growing our brains as we learn about addition. In Mrs. Kuroski’s class we are learning about winter and how the weather changes. In our listening center we heard a story called The Mitten by Jan Brett. Ask your child about the animals that crawled into the mitten. Mrs. Weaver’s friends are having lots of fun reading both fiction and non-fiction winter books. Check out some of our writing responses from our recent story, “Snowmen at Night”. We are using Chromebooks in Mrs. May’s class to test our reading knowledge, and as a wonderful extension to our winter lessons. We are very lucky to have access to such great technology devices in our classrooms. We are learning so much and continuing to SOAR every day here on Fish Freeway!!
