Kindergarten News- September 7, 2012


We’ve had a great first week at Tower-Soudan School.  I’ve enjoyed meeting and getting to know your children.

We’ve talked about how we can be safe on the bus and I’ve sent home a bus safety sheet for tips on how to talk to your child about it.  Also in your child’s folder is a practice sheet with their lunch code.  We’ve been practicing at snack and lunchtime so they may already know it!  Thanks for your help.




Kindergarten News September 12–Bullying and Bus Safety

School is becoming more routine for the kindergarten students and they are becoming more confident every day.  I am happy to see them growing into their school personalities!

Superintendent Teresa Strong spoke to the entire student body this morning regarding expectations for respect and safety at Tower-Soudan School.  She emphasized that because of our small size we are like a family and need to treat each other well.  Any students who feel they are being mistreated should tell an adult in order to have their needs addressed.

The kindergarten class had a good discussion about bus safety and watched a video clip of Winnie the Pooh’s School Bus Safety Adventure.  Please look in their folders for a safety checklist to review with them.

Here is an easy recipe for the playdough the students enjoyed today.  It is inexpensive and takes only about ten minutes to make!

I am continuing to assess the students as they learn the routines at school.  The information will be used to individualize learning according to math and reading abilities.

Look for the current breakfast and lunch menus on the Tower-Soudan School website.
