Attributions: 

SEP Conference Schedule – Walking Report Card Our Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences will be held on Wednesday, March 18 th at East Meadows. This conference is for parents and students. We will be doing things a bit differently this time; students will be doing a walking report card where they will be performing tasks for their parents to show some of the skills they have learned throughout the year. You will find the schedule listed below. Several students are scheduled at the same time, because the rotations are set to accommodate more than one student at a time. Plan on spending 10 – 15 minutes in each classroom. If this time slot doesn’t work for you, email the teacher for an alternative time. If you feel that you need a private conference with your child’s teacher, then please reschedule for another day. Thank you. Friday, March 20 th no school will be held for students. Kindergarten students will attend school as normal, each day this week, except for Friday.

Dr. Seuss' book "Hop on Pop" is definetely a favorite.  It introduces children to ryhming words such as: hop on pop, mouse on house, and cup and pup.  It teaches children that some words make the same sounds and all they have to do is change the first letter and they can read multiple words.  Our Kindergarten celebrated today by hopping on and popping balloons.  It was great fun!
