January Newsletter

Learn about what’s happening in the classroom with our January newsletter.

Welcome back to school this January!  We hope everyone enjoyed their holiday break.  Mathy, Margarita, Kirsten and I would like to thank everyone for all the thoughtful gifts that we received. 

We will be starting off the month talking about New Year’s and what we did over the Holiday Break. Followed by winter wonderland activities, winter sports and finish off with superheroes.  We will be continuing with our letter of the week activities. The children will also be continuing letter crafts that go along with our letter of the week and a themed craft.  All the crafts will be displayed on our walls and taken home on Fridays.  The letter crafts will remain at school as they will be going into a booklet for the end of the year(Preschoolers).  Toddlers will also have a special letter booklet for the end of the year but will be a little different.

I just please ask if you know your child or anyone in your household is feeling unwell please stay home.  Help us keep St.Andrew’s safe and healthy.  Also please always remember to call in every day whether your child is attending or not.  

I would like to just remind everyone about the importance of the arrival and departure times.  Please do your best to arrive and pick up at the appropriate times for your age group. Preschool: drop off 9-9:10 pick up by 12pm and afternoon by 2:30.  Toddler 9:15-9:25 pick up 11:45.   If you cannot make the right times come for 9:30 as that will be our last arrival times.  If you are running late please just call us.

If your child is showing symptoms of being sick please keep them at home to help stop the spread of germs. We are doing our best at the school to keep everyone safe and healthy.  We are just asking that we all work as a team and do this together.
