Next Week’s News! 2/2/2018
Happy chilly Friday! We had mixed reviews today about Punxsutawney Phil seeing his shadow. Six more weeks of winter!
The February Calendar is posted on the blog. We will look at Friendship, Kindness and Love as we get ready to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The books we will be reading will include:
“Won’t You Be My Kissaroo?” by Joanne Ryder and Melissa Sweet
“Valentine Friends” by April Price Jones and Elisabeth Schlossberg
“Is It Right To Fight?” by Pat Thomas
“Love IS” by Diane Adams and Claire Keane
“Love” by Matt De La Peña and Loren Long
Thank you to all who came to our 5th Annual Preschool Parent Dinner & Movie Night! What great conversation…and what good cooks you are!!!
Our holiday party will be on February 14th. We will exchange Valentines with all our classmates and enjoy a festive snack together. If you are sending in treats for the big day, please keep in mind that EVERYTHING must be completely nut free. We have in a student with a severe nut allergy. We also have another student who eats no cane sugar. So if you are sending in a sugary snack, please plan on an alternative for one child. Thank you so much!
Please only park in designated areas at drop-off. If the space you are in does not say “Short Term Parking“, then you are in someone’s assigned spot. That can make for a very chaotic start to the day.
Our family project for February is a classroom quilt. Next week you will find a fabric square in your child’s cubby. Please decorate, as a family, your square and send it back in. When all squares have been returned, I will make them into a quilt to hang in our classroom and then be raffled off at the end of the year. You may decorate your quilt square any way you like, as long as it is washable (no paper please). You can use fabric markers and paint, felt, buttons, fabric, washable glitter glue, etc. We have fabric markers here. You are more than welcome to borrow them. We also ask that you decorate inside the pencil marks, leaving us enough room to stitch the quilt together! Have fun!
Book orders for February went home this week and are due back by next Friday, February 9th. If you would prefer to order online, go to www.scholastic.com. Our classroom code is KP44F.
We have completed our Penguin Project and had a wonderful time doing it! I have attached a short video that wraps it all up! I’m having a hard time loading it into our blog because of its size. Please feel free to share it with friends and family. We are SO proud of them!
