Patti's Preschool Newsletter, January 2024
Our January theme is Health, Safety, and Nutrition. We will focus on school rules, nutritious foods, and ways to stay healthy. Lesson plans will include cooking projects, safety sign pictures, and nutritious food collages. Our staff has 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 12. If you would like to order online, find out how from Sandy or Megan! Our school receives free books with each parent order so thank you for participating.
Celebrating birthdays this month are Axel, Chase, Damla, Aaron, Cayden, and Rylan. We hope our students have a fun celebration!
Two of our incredible staff members, Vicky Palacios and Catherine Garay are also celebrating their birthdays. Happy birthday to all our friends!
