    From Mr. Feder (Science)

     The Kindergarten students will sort solids using different properties and record them in our science journals.

  From Ms. Fitzgerald (Music & Movement)

     Students are singing and dancing in Music and Movement.  Please speak with your children about the type of music you enjoy.  We will be sharing how our families listen, play and enjoy music.

  From Mr. Hanratty (Art)

     In January, Kindergarten will be learning about the art of pottery.   Students will view and discuss pottery from different cultures as well as make their own painted cup using a coiling technique.

  From Mr. Schorr (Music)

     Students will be reading picture notation to play rhythm instrument compositions for tambourines, drums, triangles, etc.  We will also explore creativity through original winter weather songs in which we dramatize snowfall, ice skating, making snowmen, and other fun winter activities. 

  From Ms. Woods (Phys.Ed)

     Thank you to the families who are sending their children with SNEAKERS every day.  We are still working on a lot of Jumping activities in class and will soon begin more sport skills.

  • Please supervise your child's homework and make sure to check & empty your child’s homework folder EVERY night.


  • Please make sure your child is reading 10 - 15 minutes each night.


Try at Home

  • Ask your child, “What is our address?”  “What is our telephone number”
  • Show them signs in the neighborhood – street name, stop signs, names of places.
  • Remind them that all names begin with uppercase letters.
