Upcoming Zoophonics Friends

During the month of July we will be learning all about the weather!


New to our school? Check out links below to learn the sounds and Zoophonic song.

In the Classroom!

In our first week of July, expect to see lots of red, white, and blue! We are going to be talking about flags, fireworks and things that we are all looking forward to seeing on the 4th.

For the rest of July we will be talking all about the weather. We are planning some awesome science activities to help us visualize the different kinds of weather. We are also going to make new weather themed sensory bottles and bins. We will even be trying out some awesome new slime recipes. Hopefully the actual weather will work with us and give us some cooler days to play outside. We will still be doing water days when the tempture permits so be sure to keep your cubbies stocked with extra clothes. For this month we will be learning some new songs in class. We are going to have lots of dancing time if it gets too hot to go out.


· Remind Me App: It's a free app that we're using to for simple reminders like show and share, friend of the week, physical due dates, etc. Our class code is 26kh9g

Operation Tot Spot Gives Back

Thank you so much for all the donations for the Julian Center. The Sawyer's class won the Jump Bunch prize along with Channing from the Sherlock's room. Everyone did awesome in bringing in supplies!

Life Cubby /New back office system

We have now officially switched back to the Daily Connect App. We will have a new "back office" system so your clock in will be similar to how it was previously. You will check the kiddos in as your enter and out as you LEAVE. Please do not clock the kids out when you enter...you clock them out when they are exiting school.

We will spend the first 2 weeks of July getting everyone's fingerprint into the system. Please plan on 10 min before pickup or after drop off.

With this change also comes a change in payment collection. The new company is Tuition Express. Thank you to everyone who has turned in the new form. You shouldn't see much difference except perhaps all payments will come out on Friday? With the old collection company some payments didn't show withdrawn until Monday or Tuesday.

Scholastic

We won't be sending out flyers for Scholastic the next couple months. Scholastic follows a school schedule so we will pick back up in August. Thanks for ordering Scholastic!

Healthy Start Wisdom

July 18th is National Hot Dog Day! You can hardly have a summer barbecue without hot dogs. Get your kids excited about food prep with these fun hot dog ideas. Although Ms. Alisha suggests at least perhaps going with turkey dog.

The Book Nook

Llama Llama Hoppity Hop

Everybody is getting up and moving with our favorite little llama. Llama Llama is jumping, clapping, bending, stretching and moving with everyone who wants to move with him.

Question: If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would do and why?

  • Ms. Corrine: Purchase a home because I am currently searching for a house.
  • Ms. Mikayla: The first thing I would do is buy a car that I know will last me for a long time. Then I'd enjoy spoiling myself and my family.
  • Ms. Alisha: Pay off this building, give almost everyone and raise and go on vacation before designing the new perfect tot spot. It would have gigantic rooms, a natural play world, doors and restrooms that operate perfectly, and bathrooms and laundry areas inside every room.
  • Mr. Mike: take a vacation
  • Ms. Danielle: I would travel for a couple of months. Just by myself. There’s a company that sends you to to secret places and that would be really cool. Like places you don’t think about. Greece is my number one place though, I’d definitely go there.
  • Ms. LeAndra: First I would go buy a pink Jeep wrangler. Then I would take my best friends and family on a huge shopping spree to thank them for everything they do for me. I would pay all my bills and I would book a week or 2 long vacation as well and finally be stress free!!
  • Ms. Katie: If I won the lottery, the first thing I would do is take a vacation to either Disney or New York City. My son wants to see the ocean and is obsessed with New York.
  • Ms. Jacanda: I would take Jeremiah to the top doctors and clinics for Cerebral Palsy. I would take him because I just want him to have the best chance at an independent life and great quality of life.
  • Ms. Maggie: If I won the lottery I would donate it to Special Olympics so that everyone that wants to go to the Summer Games in June they can. Even though we provide dorm rooms some families can't stay in the dorms due size, disability or health reasons and cannot afford a hotel room.
  • Ms. Erin: Give 1/2 the money to my parents, because they've done a lot for me.
