April 2018

Dear Parents,

    I sure hope that when you read this Spring has sprung!  As June approaches I am acutely aware of the time that has passed since September.  June hurtles towards us and there is still so much to teach, so much to learn, and so much to do.
Ms. Stephanie and Ms. Leslie will dive into the many shapes that make up the world around us.  They will explore individual shapes as well as what can be made when we put the shapes together.  Get ready for lots of fun, food, games, books and crafts to reinforce the shape of the day!!
Our three year olds will begin the month with an in-depth analysis of several nursery tales. The  Three  Pigs,  The  Three  Bears,  and The Gingerbread Man highlight  this  unit  with  much  puppetry  and cooking.  We even grow a beanstalk for Jack to climb! The threes end the month with Little Red Riding Hood and homemade bread baked by the Little Red Hen herself!
The four year olds will finish off the Wild West and move into our wonderful Spring season full of ants, blooms and birds.
The Pre K classes will hit the trail and learn about horses.  This is an exciting unit for the children, complete with pony rides and a cookout around the campfire (pretend of course!). 
Ms. Heim’s Kindergarten class will go around the world.  It’s a full month’s trip, as we learn about children in other countries.  The emphasis of study is the dress, food, homes, and customs of countries in Europe, Africa and Asia.  If any of you have traveled and can share pictures or items with the class, please call me or your child’s teacher.

      May 15th is Conference day.  I will send home the conference schedule later.  School is closed while you discover what wonderful children you have.  And they really are wonderful!  Child care will be available during your conference and for those enrolled in our all day program.

     Ms. Karen will be putting together our Spring Program again this year.  The big event will take place on Wednesday, April 18th and Thursday, April 19th. Class performances are listed below.  It is Kindergarten and MDO parents turn for goodies for the grownups.

We’ve begun the tedious process of updating the Parent Handbook and roster for next year.  If you plan on returning and haven’t told us, better do it soon.  If you are not coming back, remember to return the little green binder you received last fall.  We need to recycle them.  We have sent out information on the summer programs at Bellamy, Broad Bay and Greenbrier.  If you missed it and are interested, talk to Chris.

                                                                            Sincerely, Chris
