Thank You Chaperones & February Happenings

Thank you to everyone who braved the cold today and chaperoned our field trip to the planetarium.  I hope your child learned a little something and enjoyed the experience together with their Blue Whale and Yellow Duck friends. I’ve added some new pictures from January to our class photo album, including photos from our field trip today. Click here or on the photo album button to view them.

Now for some February happenings...

Next week we will begin our unit on pets and valentines. As far as I know, none of our students have allergies this year, so I was thinking it might be fun to meet some of your pets! If you have a pet that is good with children, would be comfortable in the classroom setting and that you would be willing to bring in for about 10 minutes before pick up one day next week, please let me know. What better way to learn about pets than with live examples!!!

As you know, Wednesday, February 13th is Pancake and Pajama Day for the Blue Whales. Please have your child wear their pajamas to school that day. If your child plans to wear slippers, please provide a change of shoes for the playground.  Thanks to Jennifer and Brian Crook and all the parent volunteers who make this event possible! Click here if you would like to sign up to bring something or help on the day of the event. (The “sign up” is for both Tuesday and Wednesday…so be sure to sign up for Wednesday if you’d like to help with the Blue Whales.)

And finally, we will be celebrating Valentine's Day on Thursday, February 14th.  We ask that your child bring in a Valentine for each student in our class. Please encourage them to sign their name on each Valentine.  If they would also like to write the "to" information, that would be fine (see name list below). Each student will have a bag outside their cubbie that morning to hold their Valentine's.  We would appreciate it if you could help your child "deliver" their cards at drop off that morning. If that's not possible, just let me or Ms. Missy know.  We would be happy to help out!

We have 16 students this year. Their names are:  Allison, Anna, Ava, Braxton, Emery, Gracey, Jocelyn, Levi H., Levi L., Nao, Nolan, Quinn, Sawyer, Sydney, Thomas C. & Thomas S.

A few more thank you’s and reminders:

  • Our library sign up is full at last! I’d like to sincerely thank everyone who volunteered to bring in books this year!

  • Thanks in advance to Emery, Sawyer and Gracey’s families for bringing snacks in February.

  • Thank you to Gracey’s family for providing playdough for the month and to Sawyer’s family for bringing books on pets and Valentines.

  • Preschool will be closed on Monday, February 18th for Presidents’ Day and Tuesday, February 19th for a teacher workday.

Stay warm and we will see you in the morning.
