Class Information


Welcome to K5A!

Week of December 18, 2017

Thank you to all who attended the Annual Christmas Concert. It is always a special evening of sights and sounds. I was so proud of our boys and girls as they sang their little hearts out.

This week we will be concluding our Christmas Unit. My hope is that the children have a greater understanding of the true meaning of this season. The most important gifts cannot be found on-line or in any store. Real gifts are found in each and every one of us. I feel so blessed to have been "gifted' by each and every one of you this year. May God bless you this holiday and in the coming year!

Important Information:
  • Poetry Notebooks WILL NOT be coming home this week. They will resume after Xmas break.
  • Silent Entry on Wednesday.
  • Field Trip to 1st Stage on Wednesday to see A Charlie Brown Christmas. Hot lunch WILL NOT be available so students should bring a cold lunch to school.
  • Xmas vacation begins at 2:00 on Wednesday.
  • Dates have been added to the Mystery Reader page. Check it out! http://leskok5a.wikispaces.com/Mystery+Reader
