Assistant Director’s Corner

Happy February! I hope everyone has had a great beginning to the New Year. Here are a few friendly reminders as we begin February. Please remember to label all of your child’s clothing so they do not become lost or mistaken for someone elses. Also, the children can only bring their age appropriate toy to school on Fridays. On any other day the teacher will put the toy up for the day.

Please remember to review the “Important Duties” section of the newsletter for your child’s class special activities and for the days the school will be closed. Finally, the classroom signup sheets for the party will be located in front. Please check with the teachers for important information on allergies concerning children. In the near future look for our community charity drive “Raising Change”, in which all proceeds will go to Shriner’s Hospital.

Teacher Updates

Infant Class
Is it already February? Here in the Infant class, Ms Olivia, Princess, is know crawling all over the room. She is also standing and walking around objects. She is now responding to her name as well. We will be continuing to work on small motor skills and large motor skills.
Thank you,
Mrs. Jenn C.

Infant Extension Class:
My name is Emily Klose and I have recently taken over our beloved Jennifer Walkers position as one of the Infant 2 teachers, accompanied by Ms. Bridget. This February we will be on the letters C and D and will be learning to identify animals and the sounds they make, along with activities such as art work and sign language.. Although Avery has left us and gone to our sister school (San Juan Preschool) we have gained a friend, Emma. She has been a great addition to our class and we hope to watch her learn and grow in the years to come.

Each week it seems like Lex, Libby, Kay’lee, Bella and Isaac have learned a new word or phrase, Lex’s favorite is “what’s that’s?” Zachary and Payton are excelling in every aspect and should have no problems with transiting into the 2/3 class in the coming months. We will be having our Valentine’s day party on Tuesday February 14th. Feel free to bring snacks for your children. There will be a sign- up sheet on their folder about a week before. Lastly, I regret to inform you that the children’s beloved Miss Stephanie’s last day here at Mission Avenue Pre-School will be February 10. She will be moving onto a different career path. We wish her the best in her future endeavors and she will be very missed by the staff the children. If there are any questions feel free to ask Ms. Bridget, Mrs. Melinda or Mrs. Jennifer.
Thank you,
Miss Emily, Miss Bridget and Miss Steph

Two-Three Class:
It’s a new year, new beginning and new class for the 2/3 year olds. My name is Miss Dusti and I have just taken over the 2/3 class for Miss Desiree. It is such an honor to be instructing such an amazing group of promising young people. I have worked close with all of them for the past year as a teacher’s aide, and they all have really outgoing personalities that is sure to make an exciting year ahead! I do plan to continue with the curriculum that Miss Desiree taught: fun in learning with reading, writing and arithmetic. We will be enjoying both music and science but integrating some cultural learning as well.

With that being said we just celebrated the Chinese New Year- “Gung Hay Fat Choy”! I introduced this Chinese Holiday to the children, and they are busy making Lanterns, painting dragons and gluing together Panda Bear faces. With such a diverse group of kids it will be lots of fun to learn a little bit about everyone.

Pre-K Class:
Here we are in February already, where did January go! First I would like to welcome Hunter to our class, and he is already making friends! This month we will continue our name practice and alphabet recognition, along with our “Hooked on Phonics” program. February 20th is President’s Day (Also no school). Another fun event this month is Valentine’s Day. We will be having our Valentines party on Tuesday February 14th. The children may bring Valentine cards to exchange with their friends. As the day gets closer we will have a sign-up sheet to bring goodies for our party. Any questions feel free to ask.
Miss Joyce

School Agers Class:
It’s a new year and the school agers are back in action here at Mission Avenue Pre-School. We are focusing on getting into a routine and working together as a team. Each day our class is learning how to accomplish getting along with others and accepting new responsibilities. We are also focusing on defining our character and exploring new fields of, Math, Science, Art and writing. I cannot wait to see what this New Year will bring. I have a feeling it will be a great year for each and every one of us.
