Weekly Update 


Welcome to Transitional Kindergarten!

Your amazing children had wonderful behavior and participation during all school mass. They earned stars and marbles for their reverence and respectfulness. 

Something else TK earned is free dress on Monday, 12/11 for the most attendance and sales per capita at the Scholastic Book Fair! Congratulations!

Request: If possible, please send a small piece of Christmas wrapping paper to class sometime this week for an art project. Around the size of an 8.5 x 11" piece of paper is perfect. Thank you!

Have a great week!


 Mrs. Hillenbrand
