Youth Art Month-Bring In Your Bits and Pieces!

Youth Art Month (March) is quickly approaching, which means Kaechele’s annual Festival of the Arts, on March 29th, will be here before we know it…

This year, we are excited to have professional artist Charlene Woods join us the first week of March to help each class create a beautiful, collaborative art piece for the festival.

In preparation for Mrs. Woods’ visit, we need to collect the following items to make our unique class artworks:

Game pieces, figurines (broken pieces especially), toys, doll pieces, nuts, bolts, wing nut washers, gears, jewelry, old electronics that can be disassembled (typewriters, VCRs, calculators), dominoes, Legos, small toys (plastic, not rubber), building set pieces (metal and plastic), small springs, wooden cut outs (broken is fine), plastic forks, knives and spoons, toy soldiers, zippers, beads, buttons, wooden puzzle pieces, paper clips, and the list goes on!  The rule of thumb should be flat is fine, long is fine, if neither then the piece should fit in the palm of your hand easily. Even broken pencils and pens and really short pencils will work!

Please bring all collected items to school, and drop them in the bin by the art room door. We will start our pieces as soon as we have enough objects, so the more we collect, the better!  

Check out Charlene Woods’ Facebook page to get a better idea of what we will be creating in class!

Get Ready NOW! Community Literacy Event Coming Soon! Yay!

School Wide Literacy Event Coming Up! Did you know, reading aloud to your child(ren) is the single most important thing you can do to help them succeed? We understand the power of sharing our words with our students at KES.  In February, in connection with World Read Aloud Day AND Kindness month,  we kick off the month of February with a very special literacy experience. Please join us by pledging to read aloud with your child(ren) in February.  You can read anything you like with your child(ren), but we’d like to offer you the opportunity to purchase an “all-read” book so that we might foster some shared experiences in the community at the bus stops, on the playground, everywhere!  We have selected The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo as well as The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams as an alternate for our younger coyotes, or as an extra companion book.  Our local book shop, bbgb in Carytown is partnering with us to offer you these books for theat a discounted price. The Velveteen Rabbit is offered in 2 versions, an economical choice, or a beautiful keepsake hardback that was just released. To order a copy of either book or both titles for your family, simply click on this link.  There is no need to enter a coupon code as our discount is reflected in the price. All books will be delivered to Kaechele and given to your child on Thursday, February 8, when we will have a very special kickoff assembly to start this fun book.  After the kick off, each family who would like to participate will be challenged to read a chapter a night aloud as a family.  If you choose not to purchase the book, then we encourage families to still read aloud with a book you choose.  It will be amazing to share in this experience with our families, our school and our community! After all, the most powerful act of kindness you can offer your child is the gift of your time as you read aloud with your family!

Save the Date (and your coats, shoes and boots!)

Save the Date:  February is Random Acts of Kindness Month, and our school will be collecting winter coats, shoes and boots to donate to the HCPS Parent and Families Department.   Over the winter break, if you clean out closets, then we hope you would consider holding any gently used or new coats and boots until Feb and donate them to our school during our Feb. coat/boots drive.  More information will be coming after the winter break.
