Fundraiser--Papa's Pizza


Happy  Monday!

Your child’s homework folder is full today!  They are bringing home Papa’s Pizza coupon Sheets to raise money for field trips, Scholastic News, and other events.  The sheets sell for $15.00 and Ridgeview gets to keep 100% of the profits.  More detailed information is enclosed in your child’s backpack.   Prizes include:  The classroom that sells the most coupon sheets will be rewarded with a pizza parts and the teacher will receive $150.00 for the classroom.  Also, for each coupon a student sells, they will be entered into a raffle and have a chance to win a Kindle Fire, Gift Cards and more.

October Read Alouds are also coming home in your child’s backpack today.  This month the goal is to read 20 books for the month.  I can’t believe it's already October! 

Please check backpacks DAILY and THANK YOU for ALL your support!

Update


Homework Folders
Thank you for your support with our Homework Folders!!  We have had 100 percent of students returning homework folders daily.  That is AMAZING!  I really appreciate all that you do to help make your students Kindergarten year off to a great start!  Name writing is slowly improving.  It takes lots of time and lots of practice!  Please remember to remind your child to always start their letters at the top.  Some students are starting their letters at the bottom and I don't want that to become a habit.  I have taught them a cute song about starting your letters at the top.  Ask them to sing it to you.  In addition, please have your child say each letter of their name as they write it.  Some student can write their name, but they are unable to say the letters in their name.  We will continue name writing for several weeks.  

I always start my letters at the top---the top
I always start my letters at the top---the top
When we practice our letters, we will get better, better, better
If we always start our letters at the top--THE TOP!


SNACKS
We are need of snacks!  Goldfish, pretzels, graham crackers are easy to pass out and the kids love them.  If every parent donates a snack once a month, we should have plenty!!

Upcoming
This Thursday, September 27th is Picture Day-Bring your forms and money to school or order online.

Homework Folders


We are off to a GREAT Start!!  

We have spent last week getting to know each other and learn about making new friends. I love this group of Kiddos!  We continued to work on learning the new routines, rules, and procedures.  We are also working hard to listen and follow directions.  

Our classroom rules are:
1.       Use Kind Words
2.       Raise our hand before you talk
3.       Try your very best.

Ask your child to tell you the classroom rules!!

Our School wide rules at Ridgeview are:
  • Be Safe
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible.


Today your child is bring home their homework folder for the first time.

Please make sure you look very carefully in the homework folder daily. I will be sending home important information in it.  It is packed full of information today!  Spend a few minutes looking through it today.  Please send it back to school DAILY.  

Remind App:
If you haven’t already signed up this is an excellent way to stay for me to send reminders!  

SNACKS

If you are able to send in snacks, we would greatly appreciate it. The students love goldfish, graham crackers, ritz crackers, etc.  They are usually pretty hungry by around 1:30.


Thank you parents for all your continued support!

If you have any questions, please feel free to jot down a note on your child’s homework folder, call me at 541-744-6308.


It’s going to be a great year!!
