Parents please share these pictures with your children of one of their teachers! Mrs. Dara is in Nashville this weekend running a half marathon! This is extra special for her because it is for the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital which benefits so many children in need, and it was something she had on her bucket list for awhile now. She said it was a difficult race because it was so hot … it was 75 degrees at 5:30 in the morning!! But of course she did it!! Her next planned full marathon is in New York City!!
We had a special treat on Thurday afternoon when Dr. Maleyko came to read to the students at Cotter! He read the story, “The Hungry Thing” which had a lot of rhyming and silliness that preschool students love!
See if you can spot Dr. Maleyko… he’s in there…
A big thank you to all the parents who made it to our field trip at the Henry Ford Centennial Library! We missed Mrs. Dara but we thank Mrs. Berry for helping out! Please be sure to visit this great place over the spring break next week! The students really loved it! They talked about it all day today!
We kicked off March is Reading Month last week with our theme being “Under the Sea”
Mrs. Chocol read, The Rainbow Fish to all students in the gym! After listening to the story we all danced to a new favorite for our students and it’s called “Baby Shark.” Here is the video that goes with the song. I’m sure many of you heard your children sing this at home. It’s one of those songs that you can’t get out of your head!
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
Please remember to sign up to read to our class sometime this month. There is a sign up sheet and we welcome all families to read a story, tell a story, or even sing a story!
Information and dates for kindergarten round up are on the Dearborn Public Schools website. Here is a link for you.
All dates and times are listed by each school.
Parents please remember that tomorrow is our monthly parent meeting. We have a local dentist coming to speak to us about dental health and will be giving us goodie bags to take home!
Please be sure to be here on time as the dentist will start our parent meeting at 9am.
We recognize and appreciate the value in home – school connections. Please continue to show your children that you value their education by participating in activities at their school and learning with them!
Mrs. Mazzei and Mrs. Dara
This is something we discussed at our parent meeting.
Recent research has shown the importance of nature for a person’s social, emotional and physical well being. We also understand how important technology has become in our lives!
We need to be sure we are teaching our children to have balance in their lives. Limiting children’s use of video games, ipads, iphones, t.v.,etc. is essential in helping their overall development, and to appreciate the benefits nature has for all of us!
