This has been such a cold winter, the children have had no chance to go outside! They have been very busy using the gym, and with our many theme weeks, they are happy and active! The 3 day class has been having a formal gym day with Melissa Coutreau, once a month. Melissa has really been keeping them active with challenging gross motor activities!
Community Helper Week has been fantastic and a great opportunity for the children to learn about different professions. Thank you to all of the parents who came in to speak with the class! The children were very excited each day to see what we were doing next. The classroom itself gave them a chance to “try out” different professions in imaginary play. It was a very fun filled week!
Our annual Valentine’s Day parties will be on February 13th and 14th. All children can bring Valentine Cards to school for their friends on those days. Please have your child sign the back of the cards but do not put any names on the front envelopes. This will allow the children to pass out their cards on their own quickly and simple. It is best if you send the cards in to school in a zip lock bag marked with your child’s name on the front.
2-DAY: 16 children 3-DAY: 20 children Multi Age: 8 children (M/W and T/TH)
There will be a sign-up sheet on the doors across from the classroom with a list of items we need for our party. Please only one person’s name for each line to avoid too many treats.
Also, during the month of February, the children can bring in Kindness Hearts. These are hearts that we provide so when your child does a nice deed or act of kindness (i.e.: help clean up, help with younger siblings, show a sign of affection), you can write it down on a heart and the children can bring them into school to share with their classmates. This is a great way to encourage your child to be especially nice during this month of love and get a pat on the back as well!
Parents in the 3-day class keep a watch out for a special letter from your child that will be arriving shortly before Valentine’s Day. We will be learning our addresses and phone numbers this month too! Please let a teacher know which phone # is best to learn.
PAJAMA DAY is always a fun day! Please send your children in their cozy pajamas on Feb 26th and 27th. Lots of fun activities are planned for this special day!
REGISTRATION for next year is filling up fast! Our 3 DAY CLASS has two openings. If you decide to send your child to a different school next year, please let us know as soon as possible. Tuition for September is due in April to secure your child’s spot for the fall. We will be reminding you this year.
School vacation week is February 19th to February 23rd.
