This week we begin virtual learning. Each morning we will begin our day at 8:15am and end our day at 11:50am. Please follow the schedule and information sent home to know what we will be doing each day. We will have special classes every day, except Friday when we will have Book and Tell. We will have multiple breaks throughout the day, along with snack time. IXL homework will be posted on Google Classroom every day at 12:00pm and will be due before the following morning. Once you complete the activities, click “Submit” on Google Classroom so that I know you are finished, and I can check the work on my IXL account.

In order to reduce background noise and let the children have an easier time hearing me, I strongly suggest wearing headphones while learning. Everything we are doing this week is the same as what we do every week, so the children will easily be able to follow along with me and work independently. This is new for all of us, so please bear with us! If we ever get disconnected, I will try to reset and get back on as soon as possible. We just have to get through this week and then we will be back together in person next Monday (12/7)!

If you have any questions at all, please contact me via Remind or Class Dojo.

  • Tomorrow (10/26) I am also sending home our next class project for the month of November. This is my personal favorite, “turkey in disguise” project. The goal of this fun project is to take our friend Tom the Turkey and disguise him, so that Farmer Brown cannot have him for his Thanksgiving dinner! Please do not just have your child simply color the turkey different colors! The goal is to be as creative as possible with your turkeys and really disguise them! Examples are below:

Homework reminders:

  • Homework this week will continue to be in your child’s blue folder. We are still focusing a lot on handwriting. If you can practice even more at home, that would be wonderful! Practice makes perfect.
  • Ms. B (our student teacher) and I check homework each day to make small corrections and add stickers, smiley faces, or a big C for correct. Red/yellow pens or other various colors are not used to show that anyone is wrong. We just want to help them learn the right way to form the letters! From what I have seen so far, everyone is doing a great job. (Just go slow and take your time!)

Other reminders for the upcoming week(s):

  • “About Me” flags are due tomorrow!
  • This Friday (10/2) will be our first half day. Students will be dismissed at 11:50am.
  • We are still missing smocks/old T-shirts for some students, along with an extra change of clothes/ extra masks in case of emergencies. If you haven’t already, please send that in when you can!
  • Most parents are on Remind, but for those who are not yet, you can download the app onto your phone and sign up with this link: https://www.remind.com/join/mkowalczyk   I will post a lot of important information on Remind, so it is important that I have all families join. If anyone needs assistance joining, I can also send you a invitation to join via your cellphone number.
  • Continue to check the Thursday Folder every week for important information!
  • If your child is ever not feeling well, please keep them at home. Work will be put aside for them and they can make it up when they return.  There are a few children who are not wearing the mask properly because it is too big on them. The mask must cover their mouth and nose except when eating. Some of the children do not like wearing the mask and I understand that. For the safety of all, the mask must be worn and fit properly.

As always, you can always contact me via Remind or Class Dojo with questions!

Kindergarten - Grade Levels - Stone Canyon Elementary

It was lovely to meet everyone on Thursday. I hope you and your children are just as ready for this year as I am! I know it is going to be a very different, but great experience for all of us!

This whole first week we will be focusing a lot on getting started on our daily Kindergarten routines (lining up, walking in the hallway, how way pray, raising our hands to speak, etc.). We will also focus a lot on getting to know one another. Some students know each other from previous years in Sacred Heart, but other students are new to the school, so we want to make sure we learn everyone’s names and some cool facts about one another. We will be reading some new and interesting Kindergarten themed stories to get us all in the swing of school and get the students in the habit of discussing and responding to text. Along with that we will also be doing some letter and number recognition, practicing writing our names, and counting.

Tomorrow morning your children will enter through the parking lot door and into my classroom, as they will every morning, and I will get started on showing them our morning routine. Please have your child bring with them:

  • Their book-bag
  • Blue folder
  • Emergency cards filled out (front and back)
  • Student info. sheet
  • Any other forms
    • Ex: textbook request, publicity release, Class Assistant form (if applicable), etc.
    • Also take a look at Nurse Sara’s blog for the Physical form, if needed
  • A lunchbox with a snack and lunch
  • Any supplies (supplies can be brought in during the week in small amounts)

*There will be no official “homework” this week. I will send home a “Ready for Kindergarten” bingo sheet tomorrow. Each night, practice some of the skills on there and try to make a “BINGO”! Nothing has to be handed in. It is all for at home practice with your child.*

Monday morning also starts Spring/Summer Uniforms which includes:


  • Black dress shorts with logo
  • Red short sleeve polo with logo
  • Black belt
  • Black or white cotton socks
  • Sneakers


  • Black dress shorts with logo
  • Red short sleeve polo with logo
  • Black belt
  • Black or white cotton socks
  • Sneakers


  • Black mesh shorts with logo
  • Red tee shirt with logo
  • White socks
  • Sneakers

Reminders for Pharmacy Professionals - Pharmacy Connection

  • Try to label all items with your child’s name (back pack, lunch box, art box, change of clothes, etc.)
  • Remember to check the Thursday folder every week
  • Sign up for the Remind and Class Dojo Apps if you haven’t already done so

For those doing remote learning, I am still waiting for your child’s email addresses to be made and sent to me. I cannot finish setting up my Google Classroom until I have those email addresses. In the mean time, using a parent’s gmail account, you can access our classroom webcame live via Google Meet. Please contact me for the link (I do not want to post it on my blog just to be safe.) This link will be the same every day.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions!

I am looking forward to getting to know you all and having a wonderful year!
