January 2015

Dear Families,

Welcome to a new semester!  We are so excited to see all of the children and look at how much older they all seem!  So far we feel like each child has grown so much over break! 

We are looking forward to another great semester and know this one will fly by as fast as the previous one did!  We have three new interns this term.  Emily will be with us on Mondays and Wednesdays, and Jennifer and Katelyn will be with us on Wednesdays.  They all seem excited to work with the children and get to know what we worked on last term. 

Ms. Jones and I will be taking our planning time on Monday afternoons this term.  This will give us the chance to plan for the children each week and look over our documentation that we collect.  Our classroom will be well staffed on Monday afternoons and we will be able to check in frequently with the classroom.  If you need to get in touch with us during this time you can let the staff members in the classroom know and they will get the message to us.

The weather outside seems to be taking a turn towards winter now.  Please make sure your children are bringing their outside gear and that items are labeled with each child’s name or initials.  We have a lot of boots, mittens, and snow pants to keep track of so this will help us to stay organized.  Wet boots can be placed on the boot rack outside the classroom door or in your child’s cubby.  We will be going outside if there is snow on the ground so snow pants are encouraged.  There may be days that it is too cold to venture outside on the playground but we are encouraging everyone to be prepared just incase. 

Monday, January 19th is Martin Luther King Jr. Day so the classrooms are closed on this day. 
Please know that with the weather this season if you see that the University of Michigan-Dearborn has closed campus that we are closed also.  Notifications should be on the major local news stations.
As always, if you have any questions, or comments please don’t hesitate to let us know!  Have a great week and stay warm.
