Aloha Kindergarten Families,
I was out sick from the classroom last week Monday and Tuesday. Due my absence the class will resume lessons/work previously posted in last week’s update. This week’s new lessons are indicated below in italics. Many students were also absent last week due to illness (colds/ flu). If your child is not feeling well, I encourage families to allow students to stay home rest. It is best students return to school fully recovered. Your support to help prevent the spread of colds/flus in the classroom/school environment is GREATLY appreciated.
We will continue midyear i Ready assessments this week during Technology. Please make sure your child has a working, labeled a pair of headphones to uses at school. Mahalo for your support!
