• Week 2 update:

    Hello K families!

    You made it through your first week of Kindergarten! I hope all of your children felt comfortable, safe and had fun this week with us and the Cox Mill family.

    Next week will be another fun and busy week. We will continue to explore procedures at school and in the classroom so that your children understand the do’s and do not’s of school.

    What are we learning?
    *Mandarin- This week we will learn salutations and mini book 'What's your name'. Kids will be able to greet people in Mandarin and introduce their Mandarin name.
    *Math- This week we will learn some basics about numbers. We will focus on the numbers 1-10. We will learn to recognize them, put them in order, and write them!
    *Science/Social Studies- The first Social Studies unit is on Citizenship and Culture. This week we will be learning about how we can be a good citizen in our classroom and in our school by following the rules and being kind to one another. We will work together to create classroom do’s and don’ts!

    Dates to remember:
    Each Friday is spirit day! Wear your Cox Mill t-shirt on Friday’s this year!
