Dear Preschool Families,
The preschoolers have enjoyed being back at school with their friends. We reflected over the pictures families sent and posted them in the hallway with dialogue for all to see. Throughout the week, we spent as much time as possible outside, soaking up this unusually warm February weather. The loose parts see-saw has been a favorite outdoor activity and the students have gotten better at balancing after practicing for a few days in a row. The children loved watching the snow melt and playing in the puddles and mud. The doctor dramatic play area has been busy as children test out the stethoscope and to give each other and our bear friends pretend shots!
Monday, we spent the entire morning outdoors! Tuesday we saw a slideshow of the big kids on an outdoor overnight adventure and the children had many questions about the trip. Wednesday we celebrated 100 days of school with Cheerio necklaces and counting activities. On Thursday, students mapped out the preschool garden on paper and came up with ideas for spring planting. Learning buddies came down to us on Friday and wrote imaginative stories together. What a fun and full week!

Coming Up This Week and Reminders
If your child would like to bring a special toy from home to school, please encourage them to wait until their leader day. We promote leaving personal toys at home to encourage the developmental skill of sharing the classroom toys and to avoid disruptions in the classroom. Comfort items such as dolls and stuffies are permitted during rest time. Thank you for your attention to this!
