Welcome to preschool! We are looking forward to a fun year full of learning and friendships!
All of August and September weeks : we will be getting to know each other, learning rules and routines and transitioning from home to school.
SHARE AND TELL is every Wednesday and Thursday! Please bring something to share with your classmates. If they forget we will let them pick a favorite toy from the classroom to share.
PLEASE LABEL all of your child’s things with their name. This includes snacks, lunches, coats, hats,shoes and share and tell items! We are small and we tend to forget what we wore or brought sometimes.
BIRTHDAYS: we are celebrating on their birthday or close to it. Summer birthday’s will be celebrated as half birthday’s.
We will send home a note with a date for celebrating. You may send in a prepackaged treat, nothing with peanuts or peanut butter please. Packages of crackers, fruit snacks, little Debbie snacks, small bags of chips or even stickers are some suggestions. We will sing , get a crown and celebrate during snack time.
