Patti's Preschool Newsletter, January 2023
Our January theme is Health, Safety, and Nutrition. We will focus on school safety rules, nutritious foods, and ways to stay healthy. Lesson plans will include cooking projects, safety sign pictures, and nutritious food collages. Our teachers have also incorporated movement games and activities to keep our students moving each day. Besides enhancing brain development, promoting active play is a good way to keep our kids healthy. Your child may come home and tell you all about participating in Alphabet Yoga or playing Mark the Spot! We will also learn about the winter season so watch for some fun winter projects to come home!
Book orders are due Friday morning, January 13. You may order online at Scholastic Book Clubs using our class code GW3RF. Our school receives free books with each parent order so thank you for participating.
Celebrating birthdays this month are Penelope F., Cameron, Graham, Chase, Bjorn, Aaron, Nixon, Emmett, and Liam W. We hope our students have a fun day celebrating their birthdays!
Three of our amazing staff members, Megan A., Catherine G., and Celeste, are also celebrating their birthdays. Happy birthday to all our friends!
