Next Week’s News! 9/16/2016
What a wonderful week we have had. Your children are getting acclimated and making friends. What a lovely bunch they are!
We begin our study of Apples next week. We will be including the books:
“The Apple Pie Tree” by Zoe Hall and Shari Halpern
“Apple Farmer Annie” by Monica Wellington
“Ten Apples up on Top” by Dr. Seuss
“Apples” and “The Seasons of Arnold’s Apple Tree” by Gail Gibbons
Over the next two weeks, we will be sorting, graphing, cooking and tasting apples. If you are apple picking with your child in the next week or two, please share photos!
I want to send out a huge thank you to all who have taken an apple off the wishing tree and contributed cleaning supplies, tissues, fish and fish supplies. We couldn’t do what we do without you. You keep us running smoothly.
Next week our virtuoso schedule is:
Monday – PE with Mrs. Wood (don’t forget your sneakers)
Tuesday – Spanish with Senora
Wednesday – Science with Mr. Wyzga and Music with Miss Emily
Thursday – Library with Mrs. Silva (don’t forget your book!)

The evening will wind up around 8:00. I do hope you’ll join us.

Monday – Hannah

We were planning to begin our home visits this weekend, but have had a conflict in scheduling. I apologize for the late notice. We will be able to reschedule to next weekend, however if that is not convenient, please reply to me and I will make every effort to get there tomorrow or Sunday. Remember that these visits are meant to be no more than 15 minutes. They are a chance for your child to show off a bit for us. We will see them where they are most comfortable. It strengthens our bond very quickly.
Don’t forget to check out our preschool blog. We will be updating photos over the course of the weekend. http://blogs.rockyhill.org/bythebaypreschool/
Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you soon!
