K-1



Welcome to Mrs. Sylvan and Mrs. Wykert's 
Kindergarten class.
We work hard, have fun and Embrace kindness!!

Last week was filled with fun and celebration. The children truly enjoyed the egg hunt that the Student Council arranged for them. Each child found their egg with their name on it.

On Friday, the children were treated to another egg hunt set up by the class moms with your wonderful donations. 
Each child gathered at least 6 eggs in the beautiful bags they decorated.
After the egg hunt, they had fun decorating delicious cupcakes
with jelly beans and chocolate eggs. I think they were decorated more than the cupcakes.
Finally, they had fun making  a cute bunny project. The best part was painting our hands green.

Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful donations  that  helped make our celebration so much fun!
