Happenings for Our Kinder Mustangs

Here are a couple fun songs to practice:

A Little Help
Listening:  Please talk to your child about listening during lessons.  As you’re talking to your child at home, it will really help us if your child can practice keeping eye contact with you and listen to you the whole time.  Also, giving your child jobs and making sure that they’re completed will be great practice.

Daily Folders: Please check your child’s folder every day for any important information and sign their behavior sheet.

Breakfast: If your child has breakfast at school, please remind him/her to eat here (some are forgetting to go and say they’re hungry later).  Also, if your child is a car rider, he/she has to be here by 7:30am to receive breakfast in the cafeteria. 

Dress Code
Beginning this week, Hayes will begin enforcement of the Cobb County dress code.  All students must dress appropriately and neatly. Here are some general guidelines:

Skirts and shorts may be no shorter than one inch above the student's knee.
Shorts, dresses and skirts with leggings must also be 1 inch above knee or longer

Happy NEW Year!!

We are so excited to be back in school...well, back in school for the teachers!  It's a first school experience for the sweetest bunch of new Hayes Mustangs!  

Here are some tidbits from our week:

If you're looking for something fun to extend what we're doing in our classrooms, check out how we're practicing our letters!

ABCMouse:  Next week, you’ll be getting a form with a class access code for ABCMouse.  We love this website.  The kids can really get practice using a mouse as well as working on some good Kindergarten skills. 

Fieldtrip:  We are going on a fieldtrip to Pettit Creek Farms on 9.23.16.  It’s one of fun things that we look forward to each year.  You will be getting a permission form on Monday.  Please send it back by Friday,  September 2.  Just an FYI:  When we set a “due by” date for things, you don’t have to wait until that date, you can send them back right away. 

Homework:  We are starting homework next week with some special things that need extra practice.  You’ll get a pink homework sheet on Monday.  The kids need some name writing practice, help saying their address & counting to 50.
