A note from Mrs. Kitson: Higgetly Piggetly is a fun game where the children identify their name in amongst other names. Recognizing our names is an early literacy goal for Kindergarten. We will be using our names to practice rhyming and to identify letters and sounds.

Forms: If you have not already done so, please send back all forms. The form that needs to be signed on the parent portal is under: Correction and Verification/General/FOIP. This gives consent to put pictures on my blog.

Field Trip: If you have signed up for the field trip all parents can come. I will send out an information letter next week.
