Hillary Hoag

Welcome Miss. Brehm!

We are very excited to have Miss Brehm joining our kindergarten class while Mrs. Hoag is on maternity leave.  Miss Brehm has stepped in and the children have made a smooth transition.  If you would like to speak to Miss Brehm she can be reached at 635-2211 ext. 202 or sbrehm@jesvt.org

The children are so very excited for Grandparents Day here in the JES Kindergarten.  This is an event to remember.  Grandparents should arrive at noon or a little before to join their grandchild for a complimentary lunch paid for by the kindergarten lawn sale we had last year.  Grandparents should enter through the playground and enter into the school by the south porch entrance to avoid being blocked in by the busses.  We will be there to meet and greet them.  The event will conclude around 2:00.  Although we love having parents in the classroom, this day is reserved for Grandparents only.  Grandparents will not be permitted to take their grandchild home unless they have written parental permission. 

Our next science unit is focusing on being good citizens and taking care of our planet EARTH!  We will talk about recycling, composting, and Green Up Day.  The kids will pollute a pond to see what happens.  We will be sending home recycled material to create something new with. 
Literacy Center time begins next week.  Centers are designed to reinforce skills in reading, writing, and phonics.  During this time I am able to provide individual and small group work to enhance reading skills.

In math we are learning about three dimensional shapes.  The children are being introduced to cone, cylinder, sphere, and cube.  We will be sorting and finding these shapes in our environment.

Please do not hesitate to contact Miss Brehm at 635-2211 ext. 202 or sbrehm@jesvt.org if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Excitement is growing about our end of the year trip to the Jay Peak Waterpark scheduled for June 8th.  We will be loading busses at 8:00 a.m., so please be sure that your child is here on time.  We will have 1:1 chaperones for each kindergartener so chaperones are needed.  Chaperones for Kindergarten students are required and need to be prepared to go into the water with the children if they go in the big river.  Students are required to wear a life jacket (provided by the waterpark) to go into the Big River.  Kindergarten students are not allowed on any of the tube slides or boogie board surfing activities.  Please call or send in a note if you want to chaperone on this day!
