A Note From Your Kindergarten Teachers
Kindergarten Connections
March 2nd, 2017
Dear Families,

It's an exciting time to be at Sea Crest. There are several big events on the horizon and the school is abuzz in anticipation. The students have been busily preparing for their upcoming performance in the  school musical.  We are so very proud of their efforts and courage and look forward to next week's rehearsals and shows. Break a leg! 

Last week, we sent home a note with a few tips and tricks for making a leprechaun trap. We wanted to send this home early so you and your child would have plenty of time to set to work!

On  Thursday, March 16th , the students will bring in their traps, explain how they work to their classmates and set them up before they leave for the day. We'll see if we catch anything for St. Patrick's Day! In addition to the trap, please also send your child to school with a potato, for a special St. Patrick's Day math activity.

We are also just around the corner from  Parent-Teacher Conferences on March 23rd in the afternoon and March 24th all day. Conferences are our opportunity to have a chat about your child's  Kindergarten experience and partner together to support your child's journey. Please see below for conference sign-up information.
We are looking forward to meeting with you! 

Sincerely,

Your Kindergarten Teachers - Team K!
Emily Travis, Helen Ortiz and Sherri Trigueiro
