This will be an exciting month for the children. Be sure and check your calendars for special show and tell days. We will be concentrating on the rectangle and heart shapes. We'll be sequencing many different sizes of hearts. We know the children will enjoy the Valentine Party. We'll also be active learning how to catch beanbags and new activites with the balance beam.
LOVE OUR BOOKS MONTH: In February, your child can bring a favorite book for the teacher to read to the class on his/her special snack day. It can go along with the units that we're learning or just an old favorite.
GROUND HOG DAY: We'll talk about the ground hog and what this day means to winter. We even try (weather permitting) to go out and see if we can find the ground hog and our own shadows. Just a reminder that if the temperature is above 35 degrees we try to get the children outside, even if it's for 10 minutes. Please don't forget mittens and hats!
VALENTINE'S PARTY: The 3s classes will have their party on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11th from 10:30-11:30 for the morning class. If you would like to send a special treat to help the room mothers, please ask the teachers whom you can contact. All parents are welcome to come to the Valentine party even if you did not sign up. Hope to see you there.
PICK-UP: Just a reminder on our policy for picking up your child on party days. Since it's so confusing for your child and us on party days, we ask that you come in and pick your child up. WE WILL NOT BE WALKING YOUR CHILD TO THE CAR ON THIS DAY. Since most parents are here anyway it just works very well and is safer. Thank you to those parents who can't make the party for the extra help in coming in. Once again, don't forget our party pick-up procedure for that day.
VALENTINE CARDS: Please don't write the names on the envelopes so the children can pass the cards out themselves. This will be a class activity before the party.
NO SCHOOL: There will be no school on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15th due to Presidents' Day.
REGISTRATION: Just a reminder that private registration is coming to an end. Open enrollment to the public begins February 1st. Please sign-up now to guarantee a spot for your child next fall.
SNOW DAY REMINDER: When Parkway is closed for the day, St. Luke's Preschool will also be closed, unless you hear otherwise from our staff. If there is a delayed day by two hours, St. Luke's Preschool will hold our regular school day unless you hear otherwise from our staff.
