Please check your calendar for show and tell days. They're important days to help develop language and presentation skills. The alphabet will continue with the letters I, J, K, L, M and N and associated sounds. The Valentine Party is always a favorite with this age. We'll also learn about money identification and counting simple change. This month we'll have a week on dental health and a special visit from a dentist on how to take care of our teeth. We'll be celebrating Dr. Suess week so look on your calendar as we ask the children to do something different everyday to go with the book we're reading. As you can see we'll be very busy with fun activities this month.
LOVE OUR BOOKS MONTH: In February, your child may bring a favorite book for the teacher to read to the class on his/her special snack day. The book can go along with the units that we're learning, or just an old favorite.
VALENTINE PARTY: The 4s will have their party on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12th from 10:30-11:30. If you'd like to participate or support the room mothers, please ask the teachers whom you can contact. All parents and caretakers are invited to attend the party even if you didn't sign up to help. Hope to see you there.
PARTY PICK-UP: Our party pick up policy is that all parents or caretakers please come into the school to pick up your child after the party. This helps avoid any confusion. Those parents or caretakers who cannot attend the party, please do come into the school to get your child. Thanks for the added help.
VALENTINE CARDS: The students will distribute Valentine cards prior to the holiday party. Please do not write names on the envelopes so the children can pass the cards out themselves.
NO SCHOOL: There is no school MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15th due to President's Day.
SNOW DAY REMINDER: When Parkway is closed for the day, we'll be closed. If Parkway is delayed by two hours, we'll hold our regular school day unless you hear otherwise from your child's teacher.
