NEWS FROM ROOM 14
Welcome to Mrs. Joyce's kindergarten web page!
Our daily schedule consists of free choice, Circle Time, literacy centers, snack, recess
and work stations which include language arts, math, handwriting and science.
We visit the library on Wednesdays.
I am looking forward to establishing the best possible learning environment for your child.
With teamwork and cooperation between parents, teachers
and students, we will have a terrific year!
After a wonderful summer vacation, I am excited to start a new
school year and meet my students! My goal is to make your child's
school experience fun and educational. To achieve this, you and I need
to work together so feel free to contact me with any questions or
concerns. You will receive weekly newsletters to keep you informed
about classroom activities.
Tina Schofield is
my teaching assistant for both sessions. She brings enthusiasm and creativity
to the classroom. Many other specialists will be in and out of our room
working with children. These include speech therapists, occupational
therapists, reading teachers and the school nurse.
BACKPACKS & FOLDERS
Each child should
have a backpack that's large enough to carry a snack, library books,
projects and a folder. The folder that is provided should be checked
every day for notices and schoolwork. Please do not send pencils,
crayons, markers or scissors to school as these materials will be
provided in the classroom.
Please send in a
small healthy snack and drink for your child each day. It should be
something that your child can open independently.
Moose Hill no
longer celebrates birthdays with snacks. Instead, the birthday child
receives a crown, a special sticker and a book. He/she also picks a
buddy to walk down to the office to get a certificate and new pencil.
Summer birthdays will be celebrated in June.
We will be going outside every day, weather permitting. Please have your child wear sneakers. Once winter is here, we will switch to a twice-a-week schedule and the children will wear their snow gear.
