Welcome to Mrs. Holtzman's Kindergarten Web Page
Learning benefits children most when home and school
work together as a "Super Team."
I am looking forward to getting to know
each of my new students and his/her family!
I am so happy that you are going to be in my Kindergarten class this school year. We will have lots of fun working and learning together, as we begin our journey as life-long learners.
When you come to school on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 please remember to wear the name tag which you will receive at our Open House. If you are unable to attend the Open House, please pick up a name tag from the office at your convenience.
Please ask mom or dad to fill the name tag out for you. Please make sure all the information on your name tag, including your bus number and bus stop, is accurate. Please refer to the “Name Tag Directions” so you know what is required on your name tag. These name tags will help make the first few days of school run smoothly.
Also, please bring a schoolbag with you each day so you can carry your important papers home. Make sure your name is clearly marked on your schoolbag. Often students have the same schoolbag, and we want the right schoolbag to go home with the right student!
Please pick out a folder that you like, write your name clearly on it, and bring it to school in your schoolbag every day. We get lots of mail in school, and a folder will help you take the information home safely to your parents. Please have your mom or dad write your name in your jacket and all your other belongings throughout the year. Please purchase a soft, clear pencil case in which to keep all your school supplies. Inside please put a small box of crayons, a small set of colored pencils, two non-colored glue sticks, a pair of scissors, and several sharpened pencils. Please do not include any markers or colored glue. I will supply them when we need to use them. Please make sure every pencil and every crayon is labeled with your name so that if it falls on the floor we know to whom it belongs!
Finally, you will need a clearly marked headset (headphones) to use with the computers and iPads. For health reasons, it is best for each student to bring his/her own set inside a labeled plastic bag, and they will be returned at the end of the school year. Please write your name on the front of the plastic bag.
I have been very busy setting up our classroom for the new school year. I hope you will be able to attend our Warwick Open House and meet some of the other students who will be in your class. Please look at our Warwick website for the exact date and time. Looking ahead, please have your parents mark their calendars for our Kindergarten Back to School Night on Thursday, September13, 2018. Additional information and time will follow.
I am very excited about getting to know each of you and your special families. I have so many interesting ideas and projects for us to do together, and I cannot wait to get started. See you soon!
