CLOSED MON, FEB 15th PRESIDENTS’ DAY
On Friday, the 12th, we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day. As a part of our celebration, all children may exchange Valentine cards. Please bring in cards with your child’s name written on the back. Each child will distribute their cards at random into cardholders made at school (so no names on the envelopes are required). A card for every child is not necessary either; just bring how many are in the box you happen to buy. Believe us, everybody gets plenty! Children not attending on Friday can bring their cards in earlier in the week.
We are closed Monday for the Presidents’ Day. Tuesday we will be talking about our letter for the week: long “O”. Wednesday we will be doing activities around our science theme for the month: shadows. It is also Flashlight Day and children are encouraged to bring flashlights to share. Thursday is Playin’ Possum Day. Friday is Opposite Day: Day/Night. It is also our Family Breakfast & PJ Day, where you are invited to join us for a free homemade breakfast.
Monday we will introduce the letter short “O”. Tuesday we will be reading the book Gentle, Giant Octopus. We will be calling Wednesday “Windsday” as we explore the forces of the wind. Thursday is Go Fly a Kite Day when we will do kite-focused activities. Friday, we will be eating, exploring and, of course, reading Green Eggs & Ham. We are celebrating Dr. Seuss, in honor of his upcoming birthday.
