Our March Newsletter
It is undoubtedly an uncertain time right now for all of us. COVID-19 has been the focus of all of our thoughts and actions. Whether your a doctor, an educator, a homemaker, a clerk, or a barista; every person is affected in some way or another. These are going to be some tough times and it will be hard to be patient. It will be hard to be calm. It will be hard to adapt to the change in our everyday lives.
When I go through struggles, I always remind myself that my most important role is being a parent. Through these times, I am reminded that my son will be looking to me and at me for guidance. Children are always watching us, more than they are listening to us. In these struggles, I hope to show him how to be calm, patient, and resilient during tough times.
I wish each and everyone good health and proud moments during these unprecedented times.

Continuation of Learning during Closure:
Preschool students will be using the activity calendar, which provides a range of learning experiences for preschool students. A hard copy was placed in your student’s backpack on Friday, March 13th, and can be accessed on our website.
Read daily to your child. This is the best way to continue learning and expand on all areas of development including language, cognitive, and academic concepts.
Engaged in the Tree Study
Small Group Instruction
All classes have been fully engaged in the Tree study. Learning about trees is fun when you include nature walks and collecting outdoor materials. Each day students receive intentional small instruction that is focused on specific skills and standards.
Students are observing the environment and all the natural elements that live and grow near Lafayette.
As students learn the different parts of a tree they demonstrate their knowledge through fun activities like painting.
