Welcome to spring! During this time of uncertain temperatures please make sure your child is dressed so that they may go outside to play each day. We do have a few spare sweaters on hand, however children are the most comfortable in their own clothing. If your child was in need of borrowing a light weight jacket, pants or shirt please make sure to return it laundered so that other friends may use it if necessary.
Updates on the gym- The gymnasium is currently undergoing a face lift. Progress is being made each day and we are hoping to be able to utilize it again within the next two weeks. In the meantime the Preschool children will eat lunch in their classrooms and go outside after eating weather permitting. The School Aged children will have their snacks in the classrooms as well. We thank you for your understanding during the remodel.
Toddlers: The toddler classroom will be busy with activities that include the themes April Showers, Signs of spring, Planting, and a Farm unit. The children will continue to work on their self-help skills of clearing the table when they have finished eating. As many of the children are in the process of toilet learning we ask that the pull ups that are sent to school have the detachable sides.
Preschool: The children will also be exploring April showers. They will be charting the days of rain / sun. In the math centers they will work on using the mini erasers to show the numbers on the raindrops, they will continue to work on letter recognition by matching the letters on the raindrops to the correct pictures. The children will also be exploring gardening. They will explore musical movement with seasonal sounds as well.
School Aged: During the month of April the school aged children will create egg structures, make homemade hummus, create rainbow toast, as well as complete the egg drop challenge. They will hopefully be able to enjoy Fun Friday at the playgrounds at JVF playground located right up the street. A sign will be posted on the side door to make you aware the children are at the playground. They will bring their belongings to the playground with them. Please remember to turn in the transportation request forms to the Beacon City School District for next school year.
