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

Parent Survey

Hi Parents,

This survey consists of two questions to collect parent feedback on the possibility to pilot year-round school concept in one or two elementary schools. One of the arguments for year-round schooling is that children will have better knowledge retention versus having too much of a mental break in the summer. School calendar would be extended to include additional four weeks in the summer. Please click on the link to share your feedback: https://goo.gl/forms/vtnCmpKQYcd6Q4jK2


يتألف هذا الاستقصاء من سؤالين لجمع آراء أولياء الامور بشأن إمكانية تجريب مفهوم المدرسة على مدار السنة في عدد صغير من المدارس الابتدائية. إحدى فوائد التعليم المدرسي على مدار السنة هي أن الطلاب يحافظون على متابعة التحصيل العلمي خلال الصيف. إذا قمنا بتنفيذ هذه
الخطة سيتم تمديد التقويم المدرسي ليشمل أربعة أسابيع إضافية في الصيف

Thank you Parents

Thank you to all of the parents who came to our Parent Meeting today!  I really value our partnership and want you to know how important your interest in school is to your child.  

Remember to let your child build his or her independence and fine motor skills.  By doing this, you will also build their confidence.

**go outside, have them button/zip their coat and put their own shoes on

**sit next to them while they cut their number puzzle, have them draw a picture, practice writing their name, string cheerios

**read a bedtime story and ask them about their day

Again, thank you so much for coming to the meeting with your child.  Have a great weekend and we will see you on Monday!

Mrs. Lott  and Ms. Jaafar

Fun in the Classroom

Welcome to McDonald PreK

Good Morning Families,

Welcome to PreK!  This is our 3rd “Full-Day” week now and we have been working on making smooth transitions.  Hopefully it is getting easier to part with your child (or children).  I know when they are sad to leave you, it is hard to go, but remember it is best to leave quickly to make it easier for your child.

We are working on social skills such as interacting with others and problem solving skills (sharing).

We have been having fun learning the school schedule and learning how to use classroom materials.  This week we are practicing cutting with scissors and putting caps back on markers.  These are skills that will help to make the whole school year more smooth.

We have also been exploring apples.  We have tasted and graphed our favorite color of apples.  We are working on an Apple poem and book as well.

Next week we will have a Parent Meeting on Thursday.


Mrs. Lott and Ms. Jaafar
