    Dear parents,
    Kindergarten "Zoom" get togethers are happening Monday-Friday, at 10:00 a.m. I have been sending out "Zoom" meeting invitations to parent's email addresses (from PHE powerschool). If you are not receiving these invitations, please email me at patricia.burnett@k21schools.org   If any of your contact information (email, phone number, physical address, etc.) has changed, please notify Laurie Northrup at laurie.northrup@k21schools.org and she will make the contact information changes in powerschool. That way, you will receive all the up to date information from Point Higggins Elementary/Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District. Thank you very much:)
     
    Welcome parents and students,
    The hardest part of this "safe-distancing" is not seeing your child's smiling, happy faces each day and not being able to hear all the clever things they have to say. Your children make me laugh...so I miss them very much. I hope this is over soon and we can all be together again.
    In the meantime, please check out Ms. Burnett's "Interesting web resources" for fun, educational things to do. And, don't forget the district website (KGBSD). It has many activities for kindergarteners to do (math, language arts, social studies and science). If anyone doesn't have a computer, please fill out the form to get one while supplies last (on the district website) . Also, some internet carriers are providing free wifi or free upgrades (for a limited time) - see the district website for details.
    Please take care of yourselves during this time and do what is best for you and your families.
    Be well,
    Ms. Burnett:)
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Welcome parents and students, 
    I hope you are all well. I miss you all! Please know that I think of your child every day. The district is working on a new way to deliver educational and fun activities to students. Educators are spending this week and next week working with the district to figure it all out. Please take care of yourselves during this time and do what is best for you and your families.
    Be well,
    Ms. Burnett:)
     
    For now, if you are looking for something for your child to do while at home, here is a website with 2 weeks worth of fun learning (just click on the link below):
     
     
    At school, Kindergarteners wrote in their journals every day (they draw a picture and write about it)...they can still do this at home...any piece of paper will do (don't worry about spelling! Just let them be creative.). Your kindergarteners are smart, let them practice any skill they have learned at school and show you:)
     
    Also, check out Ms. Burnett's "Interesting web resources" for more fun things to do (Epic books, Discovery Education, etc).

    Welcome To Kindergarten!

    August 29, 2019

    Dear Families,

    I am so happy to be your child’s kindergarten teacher for the upcoming

    school year. Kindergarten is a milestone year for you and your child. In

    previous years, kindergarten teachers were able to meet their students and

    families during the first two days of school and do some assessment of their

    skills. Our district’s policy changed and kindergarten students begin the year

    on either August 23 or August 24. We will have a “Rolling Start” for

    kindergarten students. Half of my class will start on August 23 (stay home

    on the 24) and the other half will start on August 24 (stay home the 23 of

    August). The kindergarten class, as a whole, will begin attending, everyday,

    on Monday, August 27.

    On the day that your child will start (either the 23 or 24) I would like to

    meet with families and their children the first half hour of school. I will give

    the families a tour of the classroom, collect school supplies, help families fill

    out a transportation tag, and discuss homework.

    August 29, from 6-7 pm, we will have an open house at Point Higgins. At

    this time I will go over the kindergarten handbook, behavior system, and

    answer questions regarding kindergarten.

    On the first day of school please bring:

    1. School supplies- All students please bring: a two-pocket homework

    folder (label with student’s name), Crayola colored pencils, Crayola

    crayons (24), Crayola washable markers, Crayola watercolor paint

    set, 3 large glue sticks, pencil top erasers, and TICONDEROGA

    wooden pencils.

    Boys bring: paper plates, sandwich sized zip lock bags, 1 pkg. sponges

    Girls bring: gallon sized zip lock bags, 1 container of Clorox wipes, and

    1 box of tissues

    2. Tennis shoes for P.E. (label with student’s name)

    3. Ba`ckpack (label with student’s name)

    4. Dishwasher safe water bottle (label with student’s name)

    5. Knowledge of your child’s bus number for going home from school as

    we will be filling out a transportation tag to put on your child’s

    backpack.

    Please contact the bus company so that they know they are to pick and

    drop off your child. They do not drop them off at your home as they

    may have done in preschool. There are designated bus stops and the bus

    company needs to know where your child will be getting on and off. The

    bus company’s number is 225-3806.

    The school day begins at 8:45 and ends at 3:15.

    The students who will be attending school on August 29 are: Students with

    last names beginning with A-M.

    The students who will be attending school on August 30 are: Students with

    last names beginning with N-Z.

    If that day does not work for you please call our school secretary and

    reschedule for the other day. Our secretary is Laurie Northrup and she will

    have a master list. Our school phone number is 247-1500.

    Thank you and welcome to kindergarten!

    Patricia Burnett
