News for the week of January 4th
4K Traveling Backpacks
If your child receives a book bag on January 12th it is due back by the next Monday, January 18th. That way we are able to check the book bag in and get it out to another family by Tuesday each week. We have 10 book bags per class (am and pm). Not every student will get to take home a bag each week. However, we will keep track and make sure that every student will be getting equal turns taking the different bags home. I hope you enjoy the traveling book bags. The “book bags” are designed to be fun and informative ways for families to share literacy and learning experiences at home!
4K Parent/Craft Night
Mondays (starting tomorrow January 4th) will be our 4K class weekly winter recess day. We will be going outside for the first 15 minutes of class. Now that there is snow on the ground if you would like your child to play at recess please send them to school dressed in snow gear (including snow pants and boots) and shoes to change into. If it is easier to just send in a pair of shoes to leave at school just write me a note and we will find a special spot to store them. On recess days it is also helpful for you to send a plastic bag in your child backpack so we can put their wet stuff in there to take home at the end of the school day. Other days (besides Monday) students do not need to wear or bring snow pants to school (with the exception of some students with special situations) and we would actually prefer (if possible) that you not send them in snow pants as it takes a lot of time away from our already short class time. If you have any questions about recess please contact me. Thanks for your help!
