• Hello Families: 

    Our "Gardening"  has started, and the preschoolers have expressed excitement over the topic.  Next week we will start planting seeds and watch them grow.  If anyone would like to share a book or their expertise on the topic, please reach out to arrange a visit.  We would love to have special guests to share their love and knowledge of gardening.

    Thank you all for your support.

    Learning goals that will be featured this week are "asking questions" and using new words. Preschoolers will be using the words: Why?, What?, Where?, When?, Who?, and How?- to form questions. 

    An SEL (Social/Emotional Learning) goal that will be featured this week is the concept of "Interrupting" appropriately.

            1.   Stop and think. (Think)

                                                                                 2.  Emergency ?  ( Important ?)                                

           3.   Wait                             

       4.  Say: "Excuse me."

    As a reminder & note to new families that have joined us this year:

    Please send your child in with a change of clothing (shorts/pants, shirt, socks, underwear) and a full-size backpack.  If your preschooler is not potty trained, please be sure to send in the necessary toileting items (pullups, underwear, and wipes).  We will be helping with the potty training of your child.
