Hearts were celebrated throughout the week as well as our 100th day of school! We played with our Valentine sensory bin & used heart shaped cookie cutters, red & pink beads, red acrylic hearts, red craft sticks & red gemstones with red play dough. We continued reading books about love & kindness with a focus on catching our kids being kind. Our Acts of Kindness tree is filled up with many hearts detailing acts of kindness in the classroom as well as at home! Thank you sending them in. You can continue sending in the hearts throughout the end of February.
We all enjoyed our Valentine’s Day Celebration & 100 Days of School Celebration. In case you missed it, Ms. Sheri wore the heart shirt on Valentine’s Day & the 100 Days shirt the next day.
During our celebration we used dot markers to stamp 100 hearts & the number 100. We took pictures with a sign that said, “I am 100 days smarter.” And we also created heart collages with lots of glitter! What’s Valentine’s Day without a lot of glitter?! The children sorted their Valentine’s for their friends & also enjoyed many goodies to eat. Thank you to everyone for sending in goodies for the children & staff.
We hope you all enjoyed your Valentine handprint.

Kindergarten & UPK registration paperwork can now be accessed on the Sachem Schools website.
Registration for CKC Summer Camp 2018 & the 2018-2019 school year is underway. Paperwork can be found on our website under the “Forms” tab located under “More.” Paperwork will be sent home upon request. We have a new payment policy for both camp & the 2018-2019 school year, which we will strictly adhere to. Class size will be limited to 12 per session for both camp & the school year so be sure to send in your paperwork as early as possible. We already have 1 new registrant for the school year morning session. Once we reach 12 students in a class, a wait list will be provided. Your spot will be held with the nonrefundable $50 deposit. (A refund will be granted if your child wins a non-paid UPK lottery spot.)
Please note that if Sachem School District closes due to inclement weather, we will also be closed. If Sachem has a delayed opening, we will make every effort to open at our usual time. However, extenuating circumstances might require us to close for the morning session. Please tune in to WALK radio (FM 97.5) or check our FB page, the Remind App &/or Brightwheel App for closing & delay information.
Sadly, we said good-bye to Ms. Sarah this week. However, Ms. Sarah will be covering for us whenever we need a substitute so we will still be seeing her occasionally.
