Super Second 8/29/16Posted by Bethany Chancellor at 8/28/2016
School is back in full swing, and we are off to a wonderful start! Below are news and notes for the upcoming week!
Please make sure your student's information has been updated if you have not already done so! This process has eliminated the large stack of papers at the beginning of school and makes finding your information MUCH easier!
Spirit shirt sales have been extended through this Wednesday August 31st. The cost is $8 and must be paid up front. Our "Cookie Dough" fundraiser kicked off on Friday, but there is so much more than cookie dough to offer! Please look through the catalog and encourage your friends and family to support your student and Kissam! There are a ton of great Christmas gift ideas in there! Also, 40% of the profits come right back to Kissam to help fund field trips, campus projects, and student centered events!
Reading logs, addition/subtraction practice, along with sight word and spelling words will be start this week. Each student will have a spelling list and sight word sheet in their take home folder as well as a fact practice log. Every practice piece is VERY IMPORTANT to your student's success in 2nd grade and beyond!
Our counselors are currently planning a kick off night for parent volunteers so please be on the lookout for those notes! We need and appreciate our wonderful parents coming to Kissam to spend the day with their students!
