Sea Star Newsletter

January 19th – 22nd, 2021

 

This week we will swoop into learning about bats and owls. I can’t wait to share one of my favorite bat songs with them, “Echolocation.” I guarantee they’ll be singing it at home. Many fun owl and bat crafts to come, and the bear cave will be transformed into a bat cave.

This week we will celebrate the color BLUE and the shape STAR on Thursday, Jan. 21st. Please encourage your child to wear blue and they can also bring in a show and tell that has blue on it and/or stars.

Our letter of the week is “N” is for Nigel Night owl. Talk to your child about words that start with “N”. Last week we worked in our writing journals quite a bit – the kids were very into writing the letters – it’s clicking! Yay! We have the Zoophonics animals and the corresponding letters on the wall. As they were writing they’d look up and say, “oh yeah, I remember that, that’s Missy Mouse, and she says mmmm.” They even told me they wanted to try and do it by themselves!!! Ok, proud teacher moment!!

Re-Enrollment for Fall 2021 – January 15 to 26, 2021
Re-enrollment will begin January 15 to the 26 for currently enrolled families. You will receive our re-enrollment packet next Tuesday, January 12th in the communication envelope or mailed with information on enrolling through K12online. All students will receive a new student number and access key.

Due to our current pandemic and the uncertainty still surrounding our schedule for Fall 2021, we ask that you do not wait to re-enroll your student. It will be very important to us that we know how many families are returning prior to open enrollment.

On February 1, 2021 we will begin processing new applications from the community. If you have any questions about re-enrollment, please email or call the school office or admissions director at sheit@hopeseattle.org.

Blessings,
