Valentine's Day and Sledding - Newsletter

Dear Preschool Families,

It’s been a marvelous snowy week in preschool.  We loved dancing and playing with our toddler and kindergarten friends while making fruit salad at our Valentine's Day party on Tuesday.  The preschoolers were thrilled to explore the giant snow banks outside and investigate tunnels and sledding trails.  The preschoolers are especially humored by the teachers sledding along with them as it’s just too fun to resist.  

We developed some current interest this week as the Castle Room created an emergency hospital area where doctors are treating sick patients and going on emergency rescue missions and the Forest Room is building a market where you can shop for all your needs.  We’re looking forward to where these ideas take us!  We were excited to gather on Thursday to celebrate Henry Pearson-Bond’s birthday by eating yummy popcorn and hearing a story about telling time. Spending Time with our learning buddies remains a favored part of the week by many of the preschoolers.  This week, we met outside and played in the snow with the 3/4 learning buddies.  The preschoolers climbed the banks and hill to sled with their buddies cheering them on.  After saying goodbye to our learning buddies, we ventured on a spontaneous picnic with the kindergarteners.  The end of Friday brought lots of hugs and a goodbye as we say thank you and farewell to Emily as she embarks on a new adventure teaching and preparing to move back to New York City.  Best of luck Emily!
