Mrs. Ray's Pre-K Weekly Newsletter

Week 17: January 4 - 8


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2016!!!

2015 was such a great year...but I'm so excited to start 2016 with a BANG in Pre-K!!!

We will be learning how January starts our New Year and continues into winter. How exciting that we had the Snow-apocalypse last week! All that time to play in the snow will help give great connections as we talk about the cold, snow, and all things fun in winter!

We Are in Need Of...

Our classroom is great need of BABY WIPES and COTTON BALLS!

Parent Note:

As the day are now cold EVERY DAY, make sure your child wears a coat and/or clothes they can play outside in! If the high is above 40 and concrete/sky dry we will be going outside for at least a little bit.

Also, we do not have any accidents...but water, food, potty, all different things can happen. Many still only have shorts in their cubbies. If you wish, you can also send a pair of pants for JUST IN CASE times.

Mystery Readers - all new spots available with the 2016 New Year!

With the start of the 2016 New Year I still encourage as many parents/family members to sign-up for this great opportunity to bond with your child in our classroom.
