Valentine’s Day Party
We will exchange Valentine cards Monday, February 13th. If you are sending Valentine cards, we ask that you have your child only write “from (his or her name)” on the card. Please do not address the card to any particular child. This is to encourage independent delivery of the cards (one into each child’s collection bag). There are 3 children enrolled in the class.
Registration for the 2023/2024 School Year
We are accepting registrations for the 2023/2024 school year. We would appreciate you sharing this information with your friends, neighbours, and family (anyone you know who has preschool aged children or grandchildren) to spread the word about our preschool. Surveys we’ve conducted indicate you are our most effective form of advertising. Thank you.
Scholastic Book Orders
We are excited to provide you with an opportunity to order books from the Scholastic Reading Club. Please bring your book orders to the school no later than Wednesday, February 22nd. Parents you can also order online at www.scholastic.ca/readingclub and use the Class Code RC147114 for our Preschool.
Take Home Teddy
We will be starting our “Take Home Teddy” program with the children this month. Each child will be given the opportunity to take the class teddy, “Mac” home for a weekend. Please include Mac in all your weekend plans and then write or draw in Mac’s journal how he spent his weekend. Kindly bring Mac back on Monday morning and we will share Mac’s weekend adventures with the class during circle time.
And just so you know, Mac and all his belongings get a “bath” in the washing machine after each child takes him home. So don’t worry about getting him dirty or Mac sharing germs between the children. Let the children love and include him to their full extent!
If you have had any changes in your contact information (business, home or cell numbers or an address change), would you kindly let us know so that we can update your information on your child’s registration form. We need to keep current information so that in the event of an emergency we are able to reach you.
For your child’s birthday, if you would like to provide a small snack (something simple) for the preschool children to celebrate their birthday, please let one of the teachers or Kathy know. We will supplement your birthday snack with some fruit or veggies as part of our preschool snack for that day.
We will be conducting monthly fire drills. We have explained to the children we are just practicing in case there is ever a time when we need to leave the building quickly. Please take some time to chat with your child about this.
Parents are welcome to volunteer in the classroom. Your assistance is appreciated but certainly not compulsory. Occasionally we will ask parents to volunteer for special projects such as Christmas crafts, making playdoh or field trips. Even if you are unable to come into the classroom or volunteer for a special craft, we would still appreciate your support by praying for our children and teachers.
If your child will be absent for any reason, ill or away, please notify the preschool prior to class time. You can contact us at 403.281.6755, extension 227 or email both Kathy firstname.lastname@example.org and Nicole email@example.com.
Spaces Still Available
We still have spaces available for this school year. We would appreciate you sharing this information with your friends, neighbours, and family to spread the word about our preschool. Yearly surveys we conduct indicate you are our most e
