Notes from the Preschool Room

Dear Parents,

March will be another fun and busy month in our classroom! In celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday, we will be having our annual Dr. Seuss pasta dinner on Wednesday, March 4th. If you haven't already signed up, please do so on the bulletin board which is next to our classroom clipboard. Dinner will begin at 5:30pm and entertainment (Magicians Charlie and Checkers) will begin their show at 6:30 p.m.

Our class will also be reading many of Dr. Seuss's books throughout the month of March. If any of you are interested in coming in to read a favorite Dr. Seuss story to the children please let me know. We would love to have you!

Now that we are well into our Letter of the Week lessons, I'm sure you've been hearing your child recite our alphabet chant at home. Some fun ways to reinforce the letter recognition are searching for the letter on street signs while driving in the car or when reading bedtime stories. Have your child find the letter in print and ask what sound that letter makes.

Although the weather will (hopefully) be warming soon, please continue to send snow pants and winter boots for your child. When all this snow melts the playground can get very muddy and wet!

Remember Open Enrollment is this month! Be sure to sign your child up for our Pre-K room for the fall!

Thank you!
Mrs. O.
