Learn what’s going on in the classroom this February

Wow, January went by very quickly.  We have been busy updating items and adding new materials here at the school.  If you have noticed we have a doorbell outside the main door.  When you arrive and no one is upstairs please ring the bell and a teacher will come up.  

We will be running The Big Box of Cards fundraiser again this year.  Please keep a look out for the information to come home in your child’s folder later in the month.

The children have been busy working away on their letter pages, their progress has been amazing. For February, we will continue to work on letters, but we will also be starting more number work with the Preschoolers. The toddlers will continue with the letters, and we will be introducing colour recognition.

This month we will continue talking about superheroes as the children have enjoyed this, we will also be talking about our feelings and things that make us happy, sad, angry and excited. With Valentine’s Day approaching we will also be talking about friends and family and special things we can do with our friends and family. We will be having a Valentine’s Day celebration for the children on Wednesday, February 14th. 

This year we will be doing a Candy Gram Valentine’s Day fundraiser.  This little treat bag will include little cards that the children will address to their friends and will have some little treats in the bags.  The order form went home last week but is attached in case you did not receive one already., if you are interested in having your child participate in handing out valentines to their friends, please return the form no later than Feb.9th. The number of children in the class was included on the Valentine’s Day Candy gram form.  

We want to remind everyone to please make sure your child has a change of clothes at school as some days are messy and they need a change. As always if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask one of the teachers. Thank you again for all your continued support and effort in making our school and program such a great one.
