Each class has been affected this month by the flu, virus, cold, earaches, strep throat, and other illnesses, but the warm weather that March promises us always brings an end to these problems. In the meantime, please watch your child carefully each morning. If he or she shows any sort of contagion (fever, for example), please let him or her rest at home. Only by leaving the germs at home can we eliminate it from the classroom. We are taking extra precautions to keep things washed down with Clorox wipes, washing hands, using Kleenex, and teaching the children to cover their mouths with their arms when they cough.
Scholastic Book Order
Our Scholastic Book Order is due Thursday, March 12. The flyers are being sent home.
We are very pleased to see that so many of our two and three-year olds will be back next year. Thank you for your support and goodwill among the community. So many of the incoming new parents have mentioned that parents of our children have recommended our school to them. We still have openings in the three and four-year-old classes, so please let anyone know that is still searching for a preschool for their child. I would be happy to meet with the parents and explain our program to them.
The curriculum this month is revolved around the themes of “Transportation” and “Community Helpers”. Teachers will also be emphasizing the concepts of Opposites, Following Directions, and Patience. We will also spend some time teaching the children about Poison Control. With the arrival of spring this month, the change of seasons is being readdressed. The Kindermusic themes this month are “Up in the Sky” and “Down on the Ground”. In addition, the children will be learning about “Forgiveness” in chapel. Our Bible verse is Colossians 3:13, “Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
Donuts for Dads
Dads, don’t forget Thursday, March 12 at 9:00 AM. This is a special time for Dads to come to school with their children for a short time so that we can pay homage to you and the important role you play in your child’s life. If Dad cannot attend, we always welcome Granddads, uncles, moms, or other influential people in your child’s world.
