April 2012 Preschool News

Memo from the Director

Wow, it’s hard to believe that the first day of spring 2012 is this month. I want to share some fun spring news. On March 7th the tooth fairy will be visiting us at 10a.m. This is always a fun visit for our students. Also, as a reminder on March 2nd we are returning to our original tuition contract. This was discussed in the February newsletter as well as in a memo in January. Tuition is due on Fridays for the following week. On Monday a $5 fee is charged. Late fees accrue at the rate of $5 a day. On the fourth day a $64 fee will be charged. Lastly, on April 20th at 10 a.m. Teddy Bear Portraits will be here, more information to come soon. Thanks and enjoy the spring.

Thank you,
Melinda Pritchard

Assistant Director’s Corner

Well the time has come for our center to give back to a great cause. As I had mentioned in the February newsletter we will be setting up a donation jug in which all proceeds will go to Shriners Hospital for Children. What is Shriners Hospital for Children exactly you might ask? Shriners Hospital for Children has provided care to children since 1922 with no out of pocket expense to the families. Shriners Hospital for Children is a one-of-a kind hospital dedicated in improving the lives of children by providing pediatric specialty care, innovative research and outstanding teaching programs. The jug will be located next to the sign in and out sheets starting March 12, 2012. Feel free to donate what you can and remember anything you can give helps.

Thank you,
Jennifer Cruz
Assistant Director

Teacher Updates

Infant Class

Olivia is growing and at a rapid pace. She can quickly change her body position from one to another. She can also, pull up to a standing position on her own onto to objects. She is greatly improving her fine motor skills; she is using her pincer grasp to get smaller toys. We are looking forward to seeing her develop even more skills. Have a happy spring!

Thank you,
Mrs. Jenn C.

Infant Extension Class

For the month of March we will continue to be working on our ABC’s and 123’s, as well as, learning about our classmates. All of the children are starting to sing along with the alphabet song during the morning circle time. We will be doing activities such as making teeth for when the tooth fairy comes to visit on March 7th, also, making leprechauns and pots of gold for our big boy Zachary transitioning to the 2/3 class with Mrs. Dusti. Even though we have one moving up in the world we have gained two more friends, Benicio and Amelia. We hope that they will stay with us for years to come.

Thank you,
Miss Emily, Miss Bridget

Two-Three Class

As we say “Good Bye” to the month of February, Mrs. Dusti’s class would like to thank our Mom’s and Dad’s who brought in goodies and cards to exchange for the Valentine’s Day party that was held in our class on Tuesday, February 14th. If your child was absent, please be sure to check their cubbies for cards or goodies left behind for them. While the weather is changing, so is our surroundings- please welcome 3 new students to our class; Kali Shironaka (age 3), Hunter Goddard (age 3) and Celine lee (age 2). They joined our class during the month of February, but Kali has been here since late January and missed our February news letter. Each one of them are quickly making friends and enjoying circle time and “outdoor exploring”.
On March 7th-we will be having a visit from the Tooth Fairy. She will be sharing some very important information with the children regarding the health and care of their teeth and gums. So hopefully your child is here that day.

Thank you,
Miss Dusti

Pre-K Class

Another month has flown by us and here we are in March already.

I would like to welcome two new additions to our class, Keeli and Isis, who are very outgoing little girls that can make friends very easily. The children loved passing out their valentine cards. I would like to thank all the parents that brought goodies and treats. Don’t forget to wear your green on March 16th. Since the 17th falls on a Saturday, we will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on Friday. The children have been doing very well in writing their name and letters of the alphabet. We are continuing our “Hooked on Phonics” program since almost all my class will be going to Kindergarten next year and I am doing my best to get them prepared. This month’s themes will be Forest Animals, St Patrick’s Day, Pet week and Zoo Animals. We were very excited when Cyrah lost her first tooth at the end of January and since then she has lost another tooth.
If you have any concerns please visit me anytime.

Thank you,
Miss Joyce

School Age Class

It’s a brand new month and our school agers are ready for the warm weather. With spring around the corner I would like to have the school agers to start helping in the school garden. I would also, like to have them help me plan some new and fun outdoor activates. It’s a way we can all get together and show team work. I am proud to say that since our last news letter the school agers have been listening more and getting along a-lot better. So let’s keep it up. Throughout this month I would like to talk to the school agers about respect and what it means to them to be respectful. I am so proud of my school agers for making positive changes in their attitudes and becoming more productive with their time. I hope we all have a wonderful month.

Thank you,
Miss Brittany
