Patti's Preschool Newsletter, March 2024


Our theme this month is Animals –Zoo, Circus, Jungle, Farm, and Pets.  The children will be learning about the characteristics and habitats of animals.  Some of our projects will include animal masks, puppets, animal collages, and zoo animal cages.  We will also celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday during the last week of February leading up to March.  We will make green eggs and ham and Dr. Seuss hats. Our favorite Dr. Seuss books will be read throughout the week. 


Book orders are due Friday morning, March 8. You are able to order books online!  Please see the front office to find out the procedure.

 

Parent/teacher conferences will continue through the month of March and into April. Evaluations will be sent home prior to conference dates. Conferences are not mandatory but you may sign up if you would like to meet with your child’s teacher.  Sign-up sheets will be posted in the classrooms. Please sign up for a convenient day/time and list your phone number.

 

Ms. Rowana is celebrating her 10th anniversary at Patti’s! During the past decade, she has made a huge impact on the school and has become an important addition to our staff! Congratulations, Rowana!

 

Our hard-working kitchen supervisor, Ms. Vicky, and our loving Room 1 teacher, Ms. Asha are celebrating their 1- year work anniversaries this month! Ms. Vicky has recently started helping out in the classrooms and we couldn’t be more appreciative! We’re lucky to have them both!


We’re having a petting zoo at school on Thursday, March 21st, from 10:00-12:00.  Happy Hooves will set up a little pen on our playground and the children will have an opportunity to interact with a mini sheep, a mini pig, pygmy goats, rabbits, hens, and a mini rooster. All the animals are very friendly and are used to being around kids. If your child normally doesn’t attend school on Thursdays, please feel free to bring him/her to experience the zoo. We would like advance notice if you’re joining us. (We will need you to stay with your child.) Watch for cute photos on our Facebook page!


Celebrating birthdays this month are, Amelia A., Nova, Ruth, Lina, Smith, Alexander, Anderson, Grady, Kinsley, Indio, Lily, Ellis, Junie, and Macy. Happy Birthday to everyone! 

 

Our Valentine’s Day party was a big success thanks to all the parents who donated items. We appreciate our thoughtful parents!


March is National Nutrition Month! The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics urges everyone to start small – one forkful at a time. “This year’s theme is ‘Beyond the Table,’ which addresses the farm-fork aspect of nutrition, from food production and distribution to navigating grocery stores and farmers markets – and even home food safety and storage practices.” Food, nutrition and eating skills are among the most important things you can share with children — food to fuel busy, successful lives, nutrition to nourish strong bodies and smart brains, and eating skills to enjoy the social aspect of meals with family and friends. Look for more helpful information at choosemyplate.gov to start encouraging healthy eating habits!


We will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on Friday, March 15, with a special snack and lots of fun activities. Remember to wear green to school!

 

School will be closed on Friday, March 29, to give staff extra time to spend with family. If your child is taking additional time off for spring break, please alert the front office. Thank you!

 

Daylight Saving Time begins on March 10th. Time to “spring forward!”
