Monday Letter 9/18/23

Dear Kindergarten Parents,

I hope that you all had a nice weekend. It is starting to feel like Fall and I see rain in the forecast this week so please remember to send a jacket with a hood. We go out in light to moderate rain.

Tomorrow is picture day. All of the details were in the EFC, but any questions should be directed at the office. The children may wear free dress.

The magazine sale has started. As you know, this is a huge fundraiser for Holy Rosary and we need 100% participation to really make it a success. If you have not already, please create an account for your child and start selling! I’d like each child to feel a part of the effort and sell at least one magazine. Thank you for helping.

And this weekend is Westfest, one of my favorite HR events. Saturday morning and early afternoon are geared towards the younger kids. It sounds like a ton of fun with a magic show and Princess/ Superhero story time. Here is a link with more information:

Also, if your child will be absent please let me know and the office at

Thank you for everything. Enjoy your week and let me know if you have any questions!

Mrs. Clarke

Allow your child to independently take the placement assessment and work for up to 20 minutes on site. It is important that you only provide tech help so that they are working at their own level. 

Wednesday- Leveled Reader

Please listen to your child read this book to you several times to build fluency. Remind them good readers look at the text and point to each word as they go. Return the book in the provided Zip-Lok bag for use Thursday morning.
