Notes from the Preschool Room

Dear Parents,

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. Tuesday, April 21st from 10-12pm will be Walk In My Shoes day. On this day parents are welcome to come join their child and see what a typical day is like in our classroom. We will also be having our annual Art Show the last week in April. Look for some special art projects hung in our hallways that were made by your child.

We are planning an Easter Egg Hunt for this Thursday, April 2nd. Please send 6 filled plastic Easter Eggs in to help make our hunt a success. The eggs can be filled with anything you think a 3-4 year old would like, ex: jelly beans, chocolates, stickers.

Parent-teacher conferences will be held April 27-May 1st. I will be posting a sign-up sheet next week containing the specific dates and times that we can meet.

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. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,
Mrs. O.
