October News!


          Where has the time gone? It is now the season of fall and we have been in school for 33 days already!  We continue to be VERY busy and the fun continues into the month of October as well and beyond!

          The Read-A-Thon is in full swing! Thank you for your pledges and keep reading. It is fun to have the kids be aware of how often they are read to at school and then at home as well! Our class fundraising goal is $630!      What a busy October we will have!  We will enjoy our field trip to Hidden Trails Corn Maze next week, and the Winona Fire Department will visit school at the end of the month because of Fire Prevention Month. We enjoyed a performance from the Cotter Marching Band with visitors from Cotter giving each kindergartner their very own Cotter shirt!  Then finally, we can’t forget about Halloween!  Thank you for a wonderful group of parents that are organizing the party, the parents volunteering their time and still others that are donating supplies.

Star Student Info. and Schedule!

Starting in mid September we will start our “Star Student of the Week” program.  Attached you will find our schedule for our “Star Student.”  Please mark down your child’s scheduled week on a calendar at home. (If your child has a summer birthday, it will be celebrated during their special star student week as well.) On Monday of the week that your child is the “Star,” he/she may bring in the “Star Student” sheet (to be sent home later) along with 6-8 photos to share. Please feel free to include captions on the photos.  I will put the photos on the “You’re A Star!” bulletin board.  Moreover, throughout the time that your child is the star, he/she may bring in the following:

Kindergarten Info!


Dear Parents,
I am excited to begin a new school year with you and your child.  Here is some information for you in regard to Kindergarten. It is very specific to our classroom at St. Mary’s Primary School. Please take time to read it thoroughly. Thank you!


If you missed it at Open House there were star cutouts on the table that contained many different items that our class may be in need of throughout the year. If you would be willing to donate any of those items or you have already, thank you. I would be more than happy to accept these items at any time during the school year. I am still in need of small stickers, and a couple puzzles (60-100 count.) The puzzles can be gently used too!
