February, 2013 Newsletter
Let’s hope February brings us a little reprieve from the freezing weather we’ve been having! We celebrated Mya, Aiden, Juliana, and Sami’s birthdays in January. Brookelynne, Dominic, Ainsley, and Landon were Miss Laura’s Star Students and made terrific presentations.
Ocean Pediatric Dental hygienists were here in the beginning of the month making presentations on good oral health habits and what to expect when we visit the dentist. Science Tellers came on Wednesday, January 23rd and performed hands-on science experiments with the kids. Check out our pictures on our lobby wall of the kids in action!
We had some wonderful units of study on New Years, snowmen, the winter, polar animals, and the author Eric Carle in January. In February we will be focusing on Hugging, Valentine’s, the presidents, and friendship themes in the mornings. Our afternoons will continue to rotate between literacy (the Lama, Lama book series), math (counting books), science (health workers), and social studies (family and love).
We will be having Valentine’s parties on February 14th and 15th. Please refer to the notices about the parties that went home earlier this week. Our next Friday Night Babysitting is Friday, March 8th!
Registrations for Summer Camp and Fall Preschool are now being accepted. If you send in your forms and deposit for preschool by April 1st, you receive this year’s tuition rates! Take advantage of our $100 referral award program as well.
Thank you for all of your help with suggestions for our graduation/closing ceremony. I am happy to announce that it will take place on Thursday, June 13th at 6:30 PM at the Ocean Acres Community Center! Details will come home in May.
Just a reminder that we are adding on the following days because of Hurricane Sandy: Friday, February 15th, Monday, February 18th, and Monday-Thursday, March 25th- March 28th.
And finally, just a reminder to check the Stafford public school website for snow related delayed openings or closures.
