Dear Pre-K Families,
This week, our Alpha Friend will be Andy Apple Aa. We will continue with our 2nd week of our Animals Everywhere theme. The children have been having fun in our dramatic play area with the Pre-K Pet Vet Clinic. They have been very busy taking care of our classroom pets. During small groups, we wrote the word fish and drew fish surrounding. We also worked on AB and ABC patterns as well as sorting cats by color and making a graph to show how many. This week we will learn about St. Patrick, sort big and small and classify animals by body coverings; fur, feathers, scales. As we are discussing animals, if you would like to send in a picture of your pet, we will make a poster of them.
Tuesday, will be pictures with the bunnies. If you would like your child to have bunny pictures, please turn in your order form by Tuesday morning. Only children with order forms will go down for pictures.
As we continue to prepare for Easter, and learn about Lent, we have been praying the Stations of the Cross. Last week, we learned the first 5 stations. We will continue learning a new one everyday. During Lent, we are talking about being closer to God by praying, fasting and giving. Our service project is to collect money for Relay for Life. We are collecting pennies, and filling a water bottle with dimes. If your child would like to contribute, please send some in. This year we have been included in the "penny war" that the main part of the school has started. The goal is to collect more pennies in our bucket than silver coins or dollars. Other classes can sabotage our penny collection by adding in dollars or silver coins which puts us in the negative. Past preschool students are having a lot of fun coming to our class in the morning or afternoon to sabotage us. It's all fun and fun to see them. If you would like to join the OLM Relay for Life team, you can sign up and commit to raise/donate $100 at www.relayforlife.org/mercedca our team name is OLM Lancers.
Thank you for attending the Kindergarten information night last week. Congratulations to Erin's family for winning the free registration. If you were not able to attend and would like to find out more about our kindergarten program, please let me know and I will get you a packet.
This week, there is a teacher in-service so there will not be classes held at OLM for the main school or preschool on Friday, March 16th.
