Notes from the Preschool Room

We are looking forward to April as the Month of the Young Child. As part of the celebration, we will be having many special readers come into the center to share a favorite book with the children. Please let me know if you are interested in coming in to read a book or two with our class. We would love to have you!

Thank you to all who signed up for a parent-teacher conference. The children are all doing really well learning their letters and numbers, along with learning to write their names. It was so nice to get to share this information with each of you.

As many of you know, my husband and I are expecting a baby boy this month. My last day of work will most likely be Thursday, April 24th. I have enjoyed getting to know all of you this school year and have loved spending each day with your children. Emma Schack who is a recent graduate of SJFC with a degree in Education, will be filling in for my maternity leave.

For now, please continue to send snow pants and boots to school with your child. The playground has been very muddy and these items will help keep your child clean. With the warmer weather soon approaching please remember to apply sunscreen to your child’s face and arms each morning. We will reapply sunscreen before the children go outside in the afternoons. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,
Mrs. O.
