Reminders / Notes

  • We did not nap on Tuesday and Thursday this week. We were able to add a lot of additional learning time into our day. We will continue to try napping on Wednesday and Friday. My thoughts are that my 4 day friends will have 2 good rest days. I will keep working on this and adjusting as needed. Thank you for your understanding.
  • Please review the Arrival and Dismissal section in the Parent Handbook. My copy of this is on page 6. Thank you for your help with this.
  • We will do a Class Valentines Exchange the week of February 9 -11. We will be decorating bags for our Valentines. We use this as another way to work on letter recognition by putting the Valentines in each friends bag. See the class list below. We have 12 boys.
