Patti's Preschool Newsletter, September 2022


Our theme this month is Getting Acquainted and Self Esteem. We will be talking about our families, our friends and our school. Sharing, cooperation, and expressing our feelings will also be emphasized this month. We will review school rules to give everyone a fresh start this month. September is a great month for making new friends!


Scholastic Books are back! If you’d like to order books online, go to orders.scholastic.com/GW3RF and create an account. See front office staff for more information. We appreciate your book orders because we are able to add free books to our school library with each order!


We’re having School Spirit Days this month (check our calendar). Your child may wear a preschool t-shirt that day. If you’d like to purchase a shirt, they are available at the front desk for $10.00 each.


Images 4 Kids will be here to take school photos on September 19 and 20 in the morning. You will be able to purchase individual photos along with a classroom photo montage.

We are grateful to Christina and Jason Curnyn for generously treating the entire school to a delicious pizza lunch. It was a wonderful way to mark the ending of a fun and eventful summer camp. Many thanks, Christina and Jason!


Many thanks to Laurel and Adam Elmore for donating a bag of gold (rocks spray painted gold). The teachers bury it in our sandbox and the children get to dig for it. This is a popular Western Day activity! The educational posters and toys from Lauren and Christian Pasca are being put to good use in Room 3. Thank you, parents!
