At the beginning of the upcoming month, we will begin something called “Jar Wars.” Pre-K A and B classrooms will be competing to gather the most pennies together from November 1st until November 14th. The classroom with the most pennies will have a surprise party. The pennies gathered by the classrooms will be used to purchase a gift for the classrooms to donate to Toys for Tots. Remember, Jar Wars is pennies only.

We will be having a Thanksgiving dinner in the classroom, keep your eyes open for further notice on when we will be hosting this. November 19-20 is a student holiday and November 21-23 is Thanksgiving holidays, there will not be class on any of those days. If you need childcare for any of these days, go ahead and let Ms. Wanda and Ms. Shirley know immediately.
I know we have many things in our classroom to use and play with, but we could always use a few extra items here and there. If anyone could assist and donate any of the following materials it would be greatly appreciated; dry beans, potato sacks, and empty Pringles cans .
With the change in weather coming in the fall months, please dress your child appropriately for school. We do go outside at 9:05 am so you do need to pack a jacket for your child to participate in the instructional activities during outside play. Please check your child’s cubby weekly, there are many things they place in their cubbies that they wish to share with you.

With the change in weather coming in the fall months, please dress your child appropriately for school. We do go outside at 9:05 am so we would like to suggest that you pack a light jacket for your child to wear. I know that many of you have a lot to say to us as instructors and other parents in the morning, but please do not block the class entry way. Come all the way in or out of the classroom but it is very important not to block the class entrance as other parents and students do need to get in and out of the classroom in the morning as well.
