We would like to thank you all for the kind gestures of appreciation that you sent to us last week. We enjoyed the goodies, office supplies, cards, flowers etc. that we received. It is nice to be appreciated for all of our hard work.
There will be no more homework for this school year as we know many of the children are getting involved with after-school activities.
Remember, we have several fun activities planned for the children this week. This Monday (5/14) will be Ice Cream Day. Wednesday (5/16) we will watch The Little Mermaid for Movie Day, and Thursday (5/17) is Splish-Splash Day. On Splish-Splash Day, children should arrive to school with their swimsuits already under their uniforms. Make sure your child has a towel, underwear and beach shoes in their schoolbags. The children will be able to change their shoes when it’s time for Splish-Splash Day. We usually go outside for water day around 11:00 and stay out until around 1:30 p.m. Please apply sunscreen on your child before coming to school. Sunscreen cannot be brought to school. We will enjoy a picnic lunch outside at some point during our Water Day so please send a lunch for your child on Thursday. After our water fun is over, we will return to the classroom, change clothes and take a much needed rest. If you volunteered to help with Splish-Splash Day please check into the office by 8:30.
*In the event of bad weather on Thursday, Splish-Splash Day
will be cancelled. *
Wednesday (5/16) is birthday lunch for the months of May and June. These students will eat lunch on stage and enjoy a cupcake.
Moms and Muffins is scheduled for Friday (5/18). Moms should enter through the office and report to the cafeteria for 8:30.
End-of-the-year t-shirts will come home one day this week. Please try the shirt on your child to make sure it fits. We ask that your child does not wear his/her shirt until May 23rd. Lastly, don’t forget our award’s ceremony is next Wednesday, May 23rd at 9:30. Please have your child wear his/her Stepping-Up t-shirt, blue jean shorts and tennis shoes to school on this day. Don’t forget your cameras! Remember, students should not be checked out after the ceremony. We have a really fun day planned for the students, including a picnic lunch and snowballs.

Have a great week!!
The Pre-K Teachers
