Mrs. Bruskiewicz, K4 Half Day
Welcome to K4! Take a peek at our week!
November 11, 2019
Starting next week, I will begin picking the students up in South Hall at 7:35am and taking them up to the classroom. I will no longer be waiting until 7:45am in South Hall, as the students need more time to change out of their winter gear. If you are arriving between 7:35am and 7:45am, your child should go straight to the classroom either with an adult or independently. If you are arriving after 7:45am, you need to stop in the office to check in and your child needs to be escorted to the classroom by an adult. Thank you!

Letter of the Week Show and Tell (Tuesdays and Thursdays only)
Homework is due (preferably) the following Monday.
Please label all homework items with your child's name. Any completed homework items will receive a sticker!
At the end of K4, we would like students to be able to consistently and correctly say and do the Sign of the Cross. We have been working on and will continue to work on the Sign of the Cross in the classroom, however, any additional practice outside of school would be very beneficial and helpful. If you could, please take some time to practice this with your child. You could even have them try practicing while looking at themselves in a mirror. :)
I Am Special
On Fridays, students can check out a book from the school library. These books will have a bar code to indicate that it is from the school library.
Library books are due the following Friday so that students can check out another book. If you're book is past the due date, I will send home a reminder from our librarian, Mrs. Bark!
Students are also able to check out books from our classroom library. These books will have the name Ceschi or Bruskiewicz on the inside cover and will have a chevron card holder in the back. These can be brought back at any time.
If you have a summer birthday, please let me know when you would like to celebrate.
If you are volunteering for a party this year, please keep any activities (art project, game, etc.) around 15-20 minutes. Large group activities are preferred, but we can also make small group activities work. You are welcome to use any classroom art supplies including paper, scissors, glue, paint, etc. Please let me know ahead of time of your plans so that I can prepare for the day accordingly.
All classroom volunteers and field trip chaperones must complete Safeguarding training. Please contact the office for more information.

Class Code: NP3DT
Online Scholastic book orders are due November 15th.
Star of the Week

Tuesday- Name Game (played on the Smartboard)
Wednesday- All About Me Bag (please see attached instructions)
Thursday- Favorite Book (to be read to the class by Mrs. Bruskiewicz or a special guest)
Friday- Star Reward and Treat (receive certificate and prize)
Please note these are optional projects. The schedule of activities for the week and the “due” dates are flexible. If you would like more time to complete something, please take the time to do so. I will provide the All About Me Bag instructions to you the week before so you have time to complete. If you are having a special guest come in to read, please let me know ahead of time so we can coordinate a time for them to come in. You are also welcome to bring in a special treat to share with the class.
Thank you for taking the time to share more about your child with our class. If you have any questions about Star of the Week activities, please don't hesitate to ask.
