Dear Pre-K Families,
This week is a flex week, and we are having a fun time with our Halloween centers. We have changed our dramatic play area into a 'pumpkin patch.' We are working on letters Ss, Tt, Uu, Vv and Ww. Our Nursery rhyme is "The Itsy Bitsy Spider." We will also be learning about saints in preparation of All Saints Day Mass on Friday. If your student attends on Friday, please have them arrive early enough to use the bathroom so we can leave by 8:05 to go down to the auditorium. Thank you.
Thursday is Halloween. Please remember, if your student attends on Thursday, please do not send them in Halloween costumes. We do not wear costumes in preschool. We will have a special Halloween snack, and there is a snack sign up posted on the board. If you have been fingerprinted, gone through safe environment training, and would like to help on Thursday, please let me know. You may also send a small treat with your child to share with their friends.
Please remember to turn in your Money for the Trevino's dinner fundraiser if you have not already done so.

The children have been having a lot of fun playing there and also playing with the apple scented play dough. We have been having fun on 'fun Friday' we did some apple tasting and also created a jungle when we were learning about the letter Jj. I am finishing up assessments in preparation of upcoming parent teacher conferences. If you have not already signed up, please check your email from Mrs. Mary to sign up.
