January 2017

Dear Families,

Welcome back to a new semester!  We hope everyone had a wonderful break!  We are excited for a new term.  Ms. Nulph will be interning with us on Mondays and Wednesdays this semester, and Ms. Lee will be interning with us on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  They will begin the semester by planning a few lessons each week and will finish out the term taking over more responsibilities in the classroom.  We are excited to work with them and can’t wait for our interns to get to know all of the children!

We also wanted to take a minute and remind our families about our outside time during the winter months.  Generally, if the wind chill is above 20 degrees, we will spend some time outside during the day.  We might not be outside for very long, but it is important for the children to get fresh air and get an opportunity to enjoy and explore our outdoor environment in the different seasons.
For this reason, we are reminding our families to bring outdoor gear for their children each day.  Snow pants, boots, mittens, and hats should all be labeled and we will make sure they are put on the children before we go outside. 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask!  It is so great to see all of the children again – we have really missed them!
