FCAT Testing

          FCAT Testing will still be taking place next. While this does not involve Kindergarten directly, please be sure to have your child at school on time to minimize disruptions in the morning.


Writer Wall of Fame

We will not be celebrating the Writer Wall of Fame for the next two weeks due to FCAT testing.


Snack: Please remember that we have snack time every day and your child is responsible for bringing in their own daily snack.  Please make this a part of your morning routine or have it as part of your nighttime routine to put it in the backpack the night before.


  “Welcome to the Jungle” Kindergarten Performance…Mark your calendars!!!

Practice continues to take place on a daily basis.  We are still learning parts, placement and motions to our jungle songs.     If your child has a speaking part, please work with them on memorizing the part along with saying it loud and slow. Our kindergarten class will be performing the musical “Welcome to the Jungle” with two other kindergarten classes on Thursday, March 25th @ 5:30.  The program will begin at 5:30 but the students will need to arrive to the classroom at 5:00.  Since we have 7 kindergarten classes, 3 classes will perform at 5:30 and the other 4 classes will perform at 6:30.  The show will last approximately 30 min. which will give us time to exit before the next group of eager parents arrive. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.



Kindergarten Orientation for new kindergarteners for next year will be held on Thursday, April 20th at 6:00 p.m.  If you have a child who will be starting Kindergarten in August, please call the school office to confirm that you are coming to the meeting.  You can also call the office if you are not sure of what school your child will attend due to redistricting.


Keep clipping, saving and sending in the following items:

Box Tops, Campbell Soup Labels, Capri Sun Pouches & Pop Tops

Manatee will continue to collect General Mills box tops and the UPC from Campbell soup labels all year long as well as Capri Sun pouches.   This is a great, easy way that you can help our PTO fund requests for classroom materials and manipulative request from teachers. Clipping these items will only cost you minimal time and effort. We are also collecting pop top tabs as we support the Ronald McDonald house through tab donations.
