Hearts abound around the classroom! We finished decorating our Valentine's Day boxes with various hearts. Now we can’t wait to fill them up! The children are excited to distribute cards/treats to their friends.
We threaded red & pink beads onto pipe cleaners then shaped them into hearts to decorate our small white tree. We sorted hearts by color, played with our Valentine sensory bin & used heart shaped cookie cutters with red play dough. We read books about love & kindness with a focus on catching our kids being kind. Our Acts of Kindness tree is certainly filling up with many hearts detailing acts of kindness in the classroom as well as at home!
Our children have been requesting yoga! Yes! They are asking for it & we are happily providing it for them. We have also been setting up obstacle courses with hula hoops, dots, a balance beam & tunnel. We need to keep our kids moving!
Since Valentine’s Day & the 100th Day of School fall on the same day, Ms. Sheri isn’t sure what shirt to wear. The children will have a chance to vote next Monday & Tuesday to help her decide if she should wear the Valentine’s Day shirt or the “I Survived 100 Days of Preschool” shirt. I wonder which shirt will win!

We will have a small Valentine's Day/100 Days celebration in school during snack on February 14 & 15. If you would like to send in treats/cards, please feel free to do so. We will celebrate during snack times in both the morning & afternoon sessions on both days.
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.
