4 Year Old Preschool 2018-2019
March is Reading Month
March 25, 2019
Hello Preschool Families,
This week we will begin to talk about all the changes that we see during the season of spring. We will visit the kindergarten classroom to see the chicken eggs that are waiting to hatch and begin to create our classroom garden. As the weather begins to warm up we will take the opportunity to get outside more often if possible. Please send your child to school with a coat/jacket just in case we are able to get outside on additional days (not just Wednesday). We will also have parent teacher conferences this week on Thursday.
Parent/Teacher Conferences: This week Thursday, March 28, 2019 from 4 -7pm. A sign up genius invitation was sent out on Monday March 18, 2019. Please see the sign up genius list to sign up for a conference. If there is not a time that works for you, please contact me and we can work out a time that works best for you.
Mystery Readers - Our class will be having mystery readers come into our classroom throughout the months of March and April. Mystery readers can be parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or special friends. The mystery reader can choose the book they will read or we will have books available in the classroom. Our mystery reader days will be Monday and Thursday, at 10:40 am. A sign up genius email invitation has been sent out, please check out dates for Mystery Readers at the sign up genius. Dates are also listed below. Happy Reading!!
Secret Message: Please remember to let your children know the secret message from the classroom web page or from the paper newsletter. They are so excited to tell Ms. Clarke or I the secret message!!
Colder Weather Information: Our Outside Day Will Be Wednesdays.
We will try to get outside every Wednesday for about 20 minutes, until the end of the school year. Since the cold weather is upon us, please send your child to school on Wednesdays with full cold weather gear; Snowsuit/Snow pants, heavy jacket/coat, winter boots, mittens/gloves, hat, scarf. etc. Please label all items with your child's name. If you would like to keep a set of cold weather gear at school, place all items in a large bag with your child's name on it and we will keep it on the shelf above their hook in the hallway. We will plan on going outside in all weather conditions except rain. If the wind chill is to low we will still get ready (practicing getting all our gear on) take a short walk, and then come back inside.
Snack Calendar: Please remember to send in enough snack for 15 students. We currently have 17 students in our class, however, two of our students have special dietary needs and will only be eating snacks that come from home. Healthy snacks are the best, some great choices are gold fish, pretzels, veggie/dip, fruit (please prepare fruit, peel/cut up), graham crackers, cheese/crackers, etc. Drinks are optional, we always have water.
