100th Day Celebration
January 15th, 2020
We have planned a fun day where the children will experience 100 through many different activities. To help us visualize what 100 objects look like, we are asking that each child decorate a plain t-shirt with 100 items on it. Due to the cold weather conditions we ask that all children wear a long sleeved shirt under their t-shirt so they are more comfortable. Some ideas to use as decorations are stickers, googly eyes, fabric paint, cotton balls, buttons, pom-poms, safety pins, stamps, etc. The lighter weight the item, the easier it is to glue, stick, or attach 100 things to the shirt. Please also remember that your child will be wearing the 100 things all day (it will get very uncomfortable to wear 100 heavy things like pennies or crayons on a t-shirt.) Fabric paint is an excellent decoration because it is lightweight and doesn’t fall off. Have fun creating any shirt that you would like with 100 items on it. Please have your child wear their shirt on Wednesday, January 15th as we celebrate the 100th day of school!

We are going on our first off campus field trip next month! Typically we leave the school at 9:00 a.m. and arrive back to school at 1:00 p.m. As soon as we have everything confirmed, we will send out the information regarding costs and permission slips.
We have taken the kindergarten kiddos for the past three years and it is always been a hit. We need 6 official chaperones for our class, which will ride the bus and be assigned students to monitor and have fun with at the museum. Parents who are not chosen for chaperones are still welcome to come, but must drive in their own cars down to the museum and pay a separate entrance fee. If you were interested in chaperoning, please sign up with the link below (once slots are filled, there will be no more parents added to the chaperone list):
*KIDDOS must ride on the bus to and from the museum (not in their parents car). If you must have your child with you in your vehicle, then they will be considered absent for the day and not be added to any official “student groups”.
