So much has happened at Pre School since the last time I posted news! The Orange and Green Classes worked hard all month learning their songs, finger plays and musical activities for the evening program on February 5th. They did a GREAT job!! We hope you parents enjoyed it, too.
Last week all of the classes learned about the post office and the responsibilities of the postal workers who deliver our mail to our houses and places of business. Karol Johnson, a former teacher at Salem, came to school and told us all about this very important community helper. She brought the official uniform (for each season even) and the authentic mail bag and boots. Some important advice she shared with us was, first, stay back from the curb when the mail truck is coming. The postal carrier loves to wave at you but he doesn't want to bump you with his truck. Also, please keep your dog on a leash when the postal worker arrives, for the safety of the dog and the postal worker. At the conclusion of the week, we all mailed ourselves a letter! Thank you, Karol, for visiting our classes!
Parent - Teacher Conferences are coming up quickly. They will be Monday, Feb. 23 (Blue and Purple Classes), Tuesday, Feb. 24 (Red and Yellow Classes), and Wednesday, Feb. 25 (Green and Orange Classes). Please sign up for a time this week. The sign - up sheets will be posted in the hallway near the classroom doors.
Finally, the most exciting day of the year is coming up .... PAJAMA DAY, February 26 and 27. It has been rumored that some children have been looking forward to this day since school began. Stories have been handed down from older brothers and sisters and the stories are true. You can wear you pajamas to school on Pajama Day! (The teachers will too.) Your favorite nighttime pal or blanket can come too. It's a really fun day! No napping allowed!
