Dear Kloefkorn Families,
If you feel you don’t get much information from your child when you ask “How was school
today?” I’ve listed a few questions that you might like to try.

  • What is the coolest thing that happened at school today?
  • Pretend you are the teacher, How would you describe the day?
  • What made you laugh today?
  • How were you kind or helpful today?
  • How was someone kind or helpful to you today?
  • Can you tell me something you learned that you’d like to know more about? 

As we continue to work to keep a steady traffic flow in the morning as students are dropped off
at school, please have your child ready to hop out of your vehicle when you pull up to the curb.
Thanks so much!
 
Mrs.Bowhay

Box Top Update
Kloefkorn Families we LOVE when we get GIANT bags of Box Tops!  We also love when we get a large bag with ONE carefully placed Box Top.  

We can imagine a child finding the Box Top and quickly bringing it to school, knowing they are making a BIG difference.

THANKS for all the Box Tops you’ve sent in!  Can you send in 10 more next week?   In Week 5, we’ve already collected more than 3,800 Box Tops!!!

Our Artist-in-Residence project fits perfectly with the season.  We can’t wait to share it with you.
