Can you believe it's March already? We are very excited about the warm weather we hope is approaching!!  This school year is flying by and what a great year it has been.  We still have a few busy months of fun-filled activities and adventures.  The children are learning and growing every day.  We can't believe how much progress we have seen from September to the present.  We can't say it enough, but we do want to let you know that we appreciate the trust you have placed in us to care for your most precious little ones.  We consider it a privilege to partner with you in the early education of your child.

Our Valentine party was a huge success thanks to the support and generosity of our parents.  The children had a great time sharing their Valentines and treats with their classmates. They were beaming as they left the classroom with their Valentine bags.

On a personal note: We would like to thank everyone who gave us a card or gift.  We appreciate your thoughtfulness.  We are truly blessed by having such love and support from our parents.  We thank you so much.


March 5-9 (Dr. Seuss)                                                                                                           

We're beginning this first week by celebrating Dr. Seuss and enjoying and meeting many of his whimsical characters.  This week will also be a wonderful opportunity to practice our listening and rhyming skills.  Creating a few crafts and making a Dr. Seuss treat will just enhance our unit.  Please feel free to share any items related to this theme.



March 12-16 (Windy Month of March and St. Patrick's Day)

This week we will explain how March come in like a Lion and leaves like a Lamb. Hopefully!!  Crafts and a few lessons will help complete this theme.  We'll also be preparing for St. Patrick's Day, testing our skills at catching those sneaky little leprechauns. On Thursday, March 15th, the children will participate in a fun- filled search for a magical pot of gold.  Everyone will follow clues given by the leprechaun to the pot of gold.  This is a very exciting adventure.  Please have your child wear green for a little Irish Luck.  We'll see you on the other side of the rainbow!  This is an offered switch day. 



March 19-23 (Solar System and Educational Fair)

Our students seem to be fascinated by "Outer Space" so we want to focus this week on our solar system.  During this week we will introduce the eight planets, the moon, stars and much more.  Many stories, crafts and activities will complete this unit.  Many of their creations will be displayed at the Educational Fair which will be held on Thursday, March 22nd from 6:00-7:30pm.






March 26-30 (Easter and Lent)

These two weeks will focus on Easter, by introducing a variety of lessons and stories.  We will also be preparing our traditional Easter crafts, bunnies, chicks, baskets, etc.  There will be many opportunities to work on counting, sorting, patterns, cutting and language skills during this unit.  Please bring in any items to share that are related to our theme.  We will be having an Easter party, Thursday, March 29th. A sign- up sheet will be available closer to the date.

  We will be experiencing the season of Lent as a class family, by coming together daily and sharing our “Good Deeds", praying and enjoying a story from the bible or a story that shares a message of kindness, love or compassion.  We will also have a seed bucket in our classroom for acts of kindness.  The children will be filling the bucket with paper seeds each time someone displays an act of forgiveness or kindness.  We are hoping to replace the paper seeds with real ones and explain to the children that simple acts of kindness will “bloom" into something beautiful.                                                                                                                                                                                       

March 30th (Good Friday-No School)





Happy Easter Love, Mrs. Krow & Mrs. Judd







February 19-23 (Winter Break-No School) 






February 26-March 2 (Fairy Tales and Fables)

This week we will share some old, but well-known fables, such as The Tortoise and the Hare, The Ant and the Grasshopper and The Emperor’s New Clothes.  We will also discuss some famous fairy tales such as Rapunzel, Puff the Magic Dragon and others.





A few reminders:

Please remember to arrive at the social center door by 7:45 A.M.  We start our prayers at 8:00 A.M. and we need to be in our classroom in order to say them with the entire school.  Thank you for your help with this matter.


Please continue to send your child to school with hats, boots, mittens and a warm winter coat.  Also remember that your child needs a pair of extra shoes or slippers to change into before entering our classroom.


                                 Thank you, Mrs. Krow and Mrs. Judd
