Our 4’s have also been learning the sounds of letters Ii and Jj as well as the difference between uppercase & lowercase. Next week we'll move on to the letters/sounds of Kk & Ll.
During circle time with our whole class, we also focus on letters/sounds when we choose our Helper of the Day. We count the letters in the helper's name, then try to guess the name of our helper when Ms. Sheri gives a hint by providing the sound of the 1st letter.

- Please join us in giving back to the community this Thanksgiving! Let’s see how many families we can feed together! Creative Kids Center has teamed up with Our Place Newspapers to sponsor their 5th annual food drive. Food pantries are usually at a low this time of year & really need our help. The food drive will run from October 4-November 15. Please place non-perishable food items in the box located at our door at your convenience. Food donations will be delivered to local food pantries. Thank you for your support in making a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
- We are very excited for our field trip on Tuesday, October 22. We are open our usual time for arrival in the morning. Please return to the school at 9:30 to drive your child to the firehouse, or you can meet us there at 9:45. The address is 390 Terry Blvd, Holbrook, NY 11741 (631) 588-0099. Please return the permission slips as soon as possible.
- We are closed on Monday, October 14 due to Columbus Day.
Have a wonderful 3-day weekend!
