ABC Magic Moments Full Day Kindergarten Program

Kindergarten Magic  


NOVEMBER 2018



Curriculum Focus:


Choose Love: Gratitude: To be thankful for something and want to share that feeling with others. 


Reading/Writing: The children have been writing stories each week and are beginning to read in their “just right” books.  We have focused on letters, sounds, syllables and rhyming.


Math: We have been working on writing and counting to 10 and beyond.

 


 

Food Drive: The holiday season is a good time to reflect on all the blessings in our lives. ABC Magic Moments will take this opportunity to help families in need in the Tri-City area by participating in the Tri-City Food Drive. This is also a wonderful opportunity to teach our children to help and give to those less fortunate than ourselves. Teachers and I will take time in talking with the children about giving, thankfulness and being grateful. Our food drive will start Monday 26th November. More information to follow!




Holiday Information:


* It was wonderful to see so many of you attend our Fall carnival and have fun with some the booths/games we planned for your childrenJ A special thank you to Maz (Rayan), Ramnik (Eknoor) and Hayes (Madison & Ripley) for volunteering their time to help with the booths. We would also like to express thanks to you for all the wonderful words of gratitude and appreciation directed to me and my staff!


* We are all very thankful to Nancy (Owen & Melinda’s mom) in organizing and setting up the sidewalk clean up. Children and families collected approx. 5 large bags of garbage. Thank you to all that participated. It is greatly appreciated.


*Please refer to ABC Magic Moments Kindergarten Policies and Procedures for the days that the Kindergarten is closed. We will close, in observation of Veterans’ Day on Monday 12th November.


We will also be closed Monday 19th  November till Friday 23rd November.  We will be closed all week for our Parent-teacher conferences, Teacher Training sessions and for Thanksgiving.  We will open as usual on Monday 26th November.


 


 

Reminders & Updates:


*Conferences:  Children do not have school the week of November 19th – 22nd.  I will be holding conferences on Monday 19th November. Please be sure to sign up for a time that works best for you.  We have 15 minutes, so please come ready with any questions you may have.  We will review your child’s progress report and discuss any questions at that time.

Parents enrolled at ABC Magic Moments are invited to attend. Our first presentation will be Wednesday 14th November at 6.30 pm –

*This year our annual Winter Concert at the Niles Veteran’s Hall will be held Friday 21st December @ 4 pm. Our children spend weeks practicing songs and dances to perform for their families on a ‘real stage’. All children will go home after lunch, by 1.00 pm on this day. We ask that you return your child to us at the Hall at 3.45 pm.  Please save the date!  More information to follow!


*It is imperative, for the safety of EVERY child that you take your child by the hand when leaving the school until s/he is safely fastened into the car seat. DO NOT allow your child to open doors leading to the outside areas or play in areas where cars are parked.


*DO NOT leave children/siblings in your vehicle unsupervised even if it is for a moment! It is against the law!


*Sign-in/out book: Parents/Guardians ONLY may sign in the book! Children are not to touch or write in this book.  This is a legal document required by Social Services.  Thanks for your help and cooperation.


*Our website regarding the calendar, meal plans, lesson plans and newsletters is updated weekly. (www.abcmagicmoments.com)


It is important we work with you as partners in building relationships between you, your child and Kindergarten. Therefore we cannot stress enough the importance of taking a few moments to read newsletters, memos, and browse our website etc…on a regular basis. We of course welcome any questions you may have at any time with regard to any of the above.
