The children are super excited for our Gingerbread Celebration. We are counting down the days. If you have signed up to bring some of the decorations please bring them in this week. We need everything by Wednesday, December 21st. Thank You!
If you have not turned in your “Act of Kindness Light bulb” please do so ASAP. The children have enjoyed talking about all the various ways we can be kind to others.
Please remember to help your child learn to independently put on their hat, coat, scarf, boots, snow pants at home. We want our students to be able to dress themselves as much as possible. If you can purchase mittens rather than gloves, we would much appreciate it. Mittens are much easier for kids to put on independently. We have been practicing putting on our winter gear in the following order:
1st snow pants (if you have on shoes you must take them off first),
2nd. Snow boots
3rd. Sweaters & Coats
4th. Hats & scarves
5th Mittens or Gloves.
It would be really helpful if you practiced the same order at home as well.
Once the weather warms up will resume going outdoors to play. We will go out and explore in the snow. Please be sure to dress your child in snow boots and snow pants. Waterproof gloves/mittens are also helpful. If you have any snow pants or boots that you would like to donate to our classroom (for children who do not have them) we would be very grateful.
Thank you again for all your assistance with the new arrival and dismissal procedure. When there is inclement weather the Pre-K staff will open the doors 5 minutes early so that parents and children can sit at the back three tables of the cafeteria instead of waiting in the frigid weather.
We are trying our best to keep the students healthy by washing hands, disinfecting the room and using our cough catchers. However, we understand that students will still get sick. Please make sure that you are sending a note when your child returns so that they are not receiving unexcused absences. Please remember, that children must be free from fever, vomiting, and/or diarrhea a full 24 hours before returning to school.
Please be sure to check your child’s mailbox Wednesday for a Winter Break Sweet Treat and a Free Family Treat.
Our second Parent and Child Activity will be held Friday, December 23rd in the school cafeteria from 9:15-10:30. All children (accompanied by an adult) are invited to participate at this time. There will be no regular class on December 23rd.
Winter Break- December 26th- January 6th. School resumes January 9th.
