February 9, 2015

Dear Families,
It is hard to believe that we are already in week six of the semester!  The children have been exploring several new inquiries within the classroom.  We have been studying building from different prospectives and building strategies, the motion and movement of sand and our continuing to explore rolling.  We have also been collaging, painting with tempera paint and continued our clay explorations. We are so impressed with the children’s creativity!
We have had a few questions regarding Valentine’s Day.  The children are welcome to bring in cards for their classmates.  There are ten children in the morning and ten in the afternoon.  Please sign the cards with your child’s name and we will distribute them. We ask that families do not bring in food or candy due to classroom allergies and our food policy at school.
Also, please remember to pack proper snow gear for your child.  We try to go out most days, so it is important to pack hats, gloves, boots and a warm coat and snow pants. The children truly love going outside and we want to make sure they are kept warm!
Just a reminder that Spring Break is the week of February 23-27, 2014 and our classroom will be closed. We wish you a wonderful Spring Break as we look forward to getting closer to spring!
As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.


Mrs. Stone & Ms. Jones
