Activities for June 22nd and SUMMER 2020

The schedule below has the final activities for this school year. Children at the Kindergarten level are required to complete the activities on the calendar (click: Week 10 Schedule.docx ). Pleasehave your child complete the last 3 activities for Week 10 and our final days of kindergarten. You may access the activities and links on this website all summer long to continue supporting your child's learning through the summer months. I highly recommend a regular routine of practice that includes time on Lexia (an hour each meek) and continuious work in Happy Numbers in preparation and readiness for First Grade in the fall.
