September 25, 2017

Dear Parents:

We want to thank everyone who donated or volunteered to read for the “Jane Averill Community Reading Day” on Friday, October 6, 2017. Leah’s mom (Kristy) reported that we have enough volunteers and donations so that all of the preschoolers will receive their very own copy of the book!


If you received a reminder to turn in missing paperwork, please turn in missing (required) items ASAP.


We would also like to thank Joy Lin (Baea’s mom) for making playdough for the classroom. There are many slots available if you would like to sign up. The sign-up calendar is next to the sign in sheets! We have slots available until Winter Break! Thanks


The children have worked diligently to learn school expectations this week. We will continue to review the limits and expectations throughout the week and the rest of the school year. We will finish up our study of “All About Me” this week. We are going to steer our focus to our families for the last week or two of the All About Me study. We will be using the books Five Creatures by Emily Jenkins, We All Sing with the Same Voice by Phillip Miller and Sheppard M. Greene, A World of Families by Trish Holland, and One Love by Cedella Marley to lead our focus. Please be sure to help your child complete the homework assignment of drawing their family and telling a fun or unique fact about your family. The homework will be placed in everyone’s mailbox on Wednesday, September 27th. Please return the completed assignment by Monday, October 2nd.


We will begin our lending library this week. Please be sure to reread the Lending Library Expectations. Books are to be returned each Tuesday and Check Out will occur on Wednesday. Please be sure to place the returned books in the Blue Return Book Bin…please do not place them back on the book shelf.


If your child has not received a “Me Bag” they will be receiving one this week or next week. Please be sure to send it back as soon as your can. We will be starting the Student of the Week this week as soon as everyone had completed their “Me Bags” Every child will have an opportunity to take the back pack home, complete the sheet, and bring in a favorite book and favorite toy to share with the class.


Once we have wrapped up the “All About Me” topic of study will be moving on to Fall/Autumn topic of study (The 1st or 2nd week of October). We will be collecting cool gourds and small pumpkins. If you see a cool gourd that you would like to donate to our collection we would highly appreciate it!


I am hoping that everyone is settled into preschool by mid-October. If everyone continues to transition into the classroom smoothly I will be asking for parent volunteers to begin helping out in the classroom or doing “housekeeping” duties for our room. If you are interested please see me.
