              March Newsletter 2017         


  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.  I know 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.


  Lent: 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 be sending a letter and paper eggs explaining the "Good Deeds".  We look forward to filling our classroom basket with our "Good Deed Eggs" as our preparation for Easter. 

February 27- March 3   Fairy Tales                       

This week we will be sharing many fairy tales and enjoying crafts and activities related to this theme.



  March 6-17 Dr. Seuss and St. Patrick's Day  

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.  We'll also be preparing for St. Patrick's Day, and testing our skills at catching those sneaky leprechauns.  On Friday, March 17th, the children will participate in a fun-filled search for a magical pot of gold.  Everyone will follow clues left by the leprechaun to find the pot of gold.  This is an 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 20-24 Mad Science week                      

This week we will explore the world of science through fascinating hands-on experiments.  We will be learning interesting science and technology facts by experimenting with different materials that react in surprising ways.  We hope that our students enjoy our fun experiments, share what they learned and discovered and most importantly have fun.




  March 27-31 It's a Small World

Discovering different countries and cultures is our goal for this week.  We hope to use simple stories, our Mimio Board and books to gain an understanding and appreciation of God's people around the world.  If you have any information that you may want to share with your child and us on your family's heritage or traditions, please feel free to share.  Simple crafts, music and treats will enhance our unit.


  March 25 Toast to the Future                

Please join us for an exciting night at the Delaney House at 6:00 p.m.

This is a huge fundraiser for our school and we would truly appreciate your attendance and support.  Thank you.
