During this last full week of April we worked on a special craft during art but we can’t tell you what it is yet. You will see it during our Very Important Ladies Tea.
Gross motor time included an obstacle course where we crawled through a tunnel, hopped dot to dot & walked on a balance beam.
We celebrated Madelyn’s 3rd birthday on Friday. Thank you to Maddy’s family for bringing in her favorite cookies, Oreos! Happy 3rd Birthday, Maddy!
We welcomed our new friend Meekyle to our morning class on Wednesday. He will be coming to school every morning & we are so happy to have him here.
We have a new 2 year old student that will begin with us on Mon & Wed morning beginning May 7. Please note that on those mornings, we will be a peanut/tree nut FREE facility at the recommendation of his allergist due to his age. Any snacks containing peanuts/tree nuts or snacks prepared in facilities containing peanuts/tree nuts will NOT be allowed during snack time. Most snacks have a disclaimer stating on the package whether or not a food is prepared in a facility containing peanuts/tree nuts. I realize that this may be difficult for some families to adhere to, however, this is a common occurrence in other preschools as well as elementary schools these days. Thank you for your cooperation.

The parade is approximately 1.15 miles & takes about 25-30 minutes. The ceremony begins at approximately 11:30 a.m. We hope everyone will join us. A permission slip will be sent home soon.
Young children are still very much at the mercy of nonthinking parts of their brains, and they simply cannot muster the intellectual controls that we expect of adults.
