Pajama Day

Good afternoon parents 🙂

Today was picture day and your child took a Spring picture if you placed a picture order.

Tomorrow will be pajama day! If your child would like to come to school in their pajamas, tomorrow is the day! Please send them in their regular shoes as we eat in the classroom and their are food and milk spills. We don’t want slippers to come home dirty. Tennis shoes are perfect.

Upcoming Events

Good Evening Parents,

Wow, I can’t believe it’s March already! Please make sure you check the weather report so that you can have your child come to school prepared for the weather for our outside time. We have 30 degree weather and 60 degree weather last week.

On Wednesday we will have a field trip to the Henry Ford Centennial Library. The kids will come at the normal time and then please pick your child up by 11:45 and we will all meet at the library.

We will also be having Conferences later this month so please watch for a sign-up sheet next week some time.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and we will see you on Monday!

Parent Meeting

Dear Parents,

Thank you so much for joining us at our Parent Meeting this morning. I could tell the kids had so much fun working along-side their moms/dad’s. We do the calendar everyday at school so the kids know the months and this is a great tool for practicing at home. Here are a few pictures…

Wacky Science 

Yesterday we had the Wacky Science guy come to our school and we had lots of fun.  He talked about life science and physical science.  Then we watched some very exciting physical science experiments.  These experiments were done with common household items that you may have at home.  Ask about our fun day and see the pictures below…

Nature Walk

Good afternoon,

Today we went outside and went on a nature walk around the school.  The kids founds lots of cool changes going on around us.  The leaves are changing colors and falling from the trees.  They collected leaves, small sticks, pinecones, pine needles and little seeds from the trees.  We had fun outside and even brought items inside to explore at work time!

Pajama Day

Good Eveing Parents,

Just a reminder that tomorrow is Pajama Day!  

Today we did some pumpkin exploration and the kids loved it.  We used our senses to describe the pumpkin and we made guesses of what might be inside before we opened it up and explored some more.  Here are a few pictures…

See you tomorrow😌

Fall Activities

Good Afternoon Parents,

Since we are at the end of October we will be talking a lot about Fall.  We have been talking about apples.  We will add onto that with talking about pumpkins and leaves and the changes in the weather and our environment around us.

On Tuesday we will be having pajama day!!  The boys and girls can come to school in their pajamas with their socks and tennis shoes.  No slippers please because we eat lunch in the classroom and we don’t want them to get any food spills on their slippers if they have them.  We will let the kids know on Monday .

Thank you,

Mrs. Lott and Ms. Jaafar
