Weekly Notes from the Preschool Director, 10/25

Dear Preschool Families,

With temperatures still at 100 degrees, it is hard to believe that the holidays are right around the corner! This week Mrs. Patel taught us about Diwali, the Festival of Lights. In Pre-K, children made “diyas” candles and decorated them with colorful stones.

Thank you to all who helped put together our Safety Day! We had so much fun learning all about the cars, trucks, motorcycles and K-9 unit, but the biggest highlight was the red fire truck.

Children learned how to duck, cover and hold during the Great California Shakeout. Please continue to practice this safety precaution on a regular basis.

Request: When children go to the doctor for immunization and annual physicals can you please stop by my office so that I may make a copy.

Spirit Store: Ms. Denyer will be at the Preschool building this Thursday, October 26 from 7:45 am - 8:30 am. Stop by and check out the Firebird Spirit Gear!

Halloween: Next Tuesday, Preschool, and Pre-Kindergarten students will parade their costumes for Middle and Upper School students during the all-school assembly in the Gym. On the way back to class, the Preschool students will visit Kindergarten and get a treat from Mrs. Fisher!

Please note, we do encourage students to dress up and have fun, but remember- no blood, no masks, no weapons, no full face makeup/paint. Students must wear athletic shoes for the entire day. Crickets will not participate in assembly or the walk parade. PS and PK children will stop at the Crickets gate and sing to them and wish them a happy holiday.

Coffee with Mrs. Rodriguez & Mrs. Chaffins: Our next meeting will be October 27th at 8:45-9:45, E-10 in the Pre-K building. Please join us if you can.

Mini-Camp: Our next mini-camp will be over Thanksgiving break, November 20-22. Sign up here.
