Weekly Notes from the Preschool Director, 11/15

Dear Preschool Families,

I hope you have had the chance to stop by our students' active science center displays! They'd love to tell you what they've learned about our native surroundings.

Traditions: Last week, notices went out regarding the “Traditions Month.” With this activity, take a moment to enjoy the season and explore the true meaning of giving and thankfulness. My tradition is collecting nutcrackers. My family and I are always on the lookout for different ones or we work together to fix the ones that over the years have lost a leg or arm. Another example of a tradition from a current family is watching a movie with popcorn every Friday night. Sign up with your child's teacher to share any family tradition you may have!

Veteran’s Day Assembly: Preschool and Pre-K did a wonderful job their first time on stage this year! They sang their little hearts out and were cheered by the crowd and fellow students. They were all so happy to be part of such an amazing event. From the kazoos to the glitter confetti, it was a morning filled with honor and pride.

Friday and Monday Free dress: Please have children wear comfortable clothes that follow the dress code. Shorts should be knee length and tops should cover what a t-shirt covers. Please label all sweaters. Every year there is a pile of lost items that do not find their way back home.

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

Box tops and plastic water bottles: Please continue your donations, we greatly appreciate all of your support!

Coffee with Mrs. Rodriguez & Mrs. Chaffins: Our next meeting will be this Friday, November 17 at 8:45 am, E-10. Please join us if you can.
