What another crazy weather week we had this week. So glad it is nice out again today!
What We’re Learning
We are working on double digit addition, telling time to the half hour, congruent shapes, and finding different ways to make an amount of money using coins.
We have been working on opinions as well as adjectives. We are also working on more phonograms and words in class as well. Keep watching the phonogram videos at home to help practice those sounds!
We have now finished learning about the important animals, plants, and landmarks of North America (buffalo, corn, Statue of Liberty) and South America (monkey, banana tree, Machu Pichu). Ask your child what they have learned about each of the continents.
Notes from Your Teachers
We will be starting our End of Year testing over the next couple of weeks. If you know of days your child will be absent, please email your child’s teacher now, so we can accommodate for any testing that needs to be completed.
▪ Don’t forget: Wednesday, May 1st is a No School Day for K-1, but it is a testing day. We do need to have every student come to school for their assigned time to take an individual test with us. More information will be coming soon!
UPCOMING FIELD TRIP
We will be going to the Denver Zoo on Friday, May 3rd to go along with our 7 Continents and Habitat units! This will be our final field trip of the year. Teachers will be contacting chaperones! Please sign your child up on the School Store
Our final set of Parent-Teacher conferences will be on Wednesday, May 15th and Thursday, May 16th. Please mark your calendar for these dates now. More information will be coming in the next couple of weeks!
Kindergarten Graduation will take place on Friday, May 17th. This is an informal ceremony, but all families are invited to attend. We will send out more details as the day gets closer, but we wanted to give you the date so you can mark your calendars now!

FOOD DRIVE NEXT WEEK
Our fabulous PTO’s 2nd annual Food Drive begins on Monday! All food will be given to College View Elementary. What a fun way to help encourage Citizenship! There will be a trailer in the parking lot for items to be dropped off at, so your child doesn’t even need to bring it into the classroom. Each day will be a different theme, feel free to follow along for ideas. Remember: ALL FOOD MUST BE NON-PERISHABLE!
▪ Monday, 4/15: Meaty Monday ~ canned meats, canned beans, non-perishable protein
▪ Tuesday, 4/16: Tomato Tuesday ~ canned tomatoes, canned vegetables (corn, carrots, spinach, potatoes, squash, etc.)
▪ Wednesday, 4/17: Whole Grain Wednesday ~ pasta, rice, taco shells, cereal, oatmeal, etc.
