Fhew I am tired… but spring is springing at Jenks

What a great winter for the kindergarten.

They have been busy reading and journaling. The morning journal sessions are wonderful to experience. It is fun to hang out and read their sentences…very interesting and entertaining.

They have also been very involved in charitable causes….a jump-a-thon for the American Heart Association, a math-a-thon for St. Judes, collecting pennies for schools in Afganistan.

They have had assemblies on topics including Fire Safety and the 76ers’ Read to Achieve. There was Career Day and Literacy Week which brought authors, illustrators and grandparents to the school.

The kids exchanged valentines and celebrated Dr. Suess’s Birthday. They are able to buy pretzels on Tuesday’s and Friday’s and the Market Place (Weaver’s Way) comes on Thursdays. Many families enjoyed Jenks’ Day at the Chestnut Grill, coming again on April 21st.

A very busy winter….. now as the kids start to shed their jackets you can see them begin to look and act like first graders.

And coming soon…..Pi Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Fire Fighter Honor Assembly, Spring Scholastic Book Fair and the first day of Spring.
