May 21-25

Thank you to Mrs. Wencl and Allina Health for the donation to our classroom! We used our new Code and Go Robot Mouse center today!

We have our Lincoln Art Show and Ice Cream Social at Lincoln on Thursday, May 24 from 6:00-7:00. Come on in to enjoy a treat and view the self-portraits of every Lincoln student!

The K-2 track and field day will be on Thursday at Lincoln from 12:00-2:15. Kiddos need tennis shoes, comfy clothes, sunscreen, and a water bottle. They will go through track and field stations and have a sweet treat at the end of the day.

I sent home a reminder about the Color Dash. This is a color run that will take place on May 30th. We collect pledges to help maintain our playgrounds and to donate to the "We All Play" inclusive playground in the works for Owatonna. The entire school participates and it is a hoot! If you can make it, you should definitely try to come walk/run with the kids!

Fluency Folder (bags)- These bags contain kindergarten sight words/sentences on different colored papers. Once your child can read the pink, the next color will be sent home. The bag also contains 2 "just right" books for your kiddo to read with you! I ask that you spend 5-10 minutes reading something from the bag each school night. I have a log for you to sign and return on Fridays. We will then refill the bag with new reading material for the next week. This counts toward your reading minutes on our monthly reading logs and will help your child immeasurably with their reading progress! Thank you so much!

You will find a coupon for a free Personal Pan Pizza from Pizza Hut on your child's completed reading log! Thanks, Pizza Hut!

Now that school has begun, please make sure to check your child for lice weekly!

*IMPORTANT* We have a couple of friends with severe nut allergies. We will be a nut-safe classroom to keep these friends healthy, safe, and happy! Please refrain from any peanut products for birthday treats etc.
