WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS MONTH
Mrs. “G” and her little ones will bring in March like a lion and hope that it goes out like a lamb. They will make cupcakes that we are sure will make you smile. And we have a special birthday this month……Dr. Seuss. We won’t forget St. Patrick’s Day as we make our shamrock cookies with green icing. Then, in preparation for spring, we will make chicks using our feet and eggs using marbles! We do have such fun with your children!
We can’t believe March is here already. During the first weeks of March, we will be very busy. We will celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday on Friday, March 2nd and read lots of Dr. Seuss books. Of course, we will get ready for St. Patrick’s Day by making a special Leprechaun box. Hopefully we can catch one of those mischief makers. And then, of course, we will spend the last weeks in March talking about the Spring holidays of Easter and Passover. We will paint, bake and create for these holidays. Thank you for attending our Olympics. All of the children certainly deserve a gold medal!
March will be a fun month for Mrs. Pullias’ class. On the first day we will begin by using our counting chain to count down to the first day of Spring! We will continue our unit on Dental Health and then introduce our Transportation unit. This is always a favorite, especially on Show and Tell day! Our Amazing Alphabet Adventure will continue with the letters S, T and U. Don’t forget Conference Day on Friday, March 16th. We can’t wait to meet with you and tell you how wonderful your children are and what a year we are having! Of course, we will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with shamrocks and rainbows and a wee bit of leprechaun magic. Later in the month, we will keep our eye out for that tall fellow with the long ears and cotton tail! Happy Spring everyone – we hope you have as much fun as we do this month!
In Extended Day we are going to be talking about everything, “green”, “green”, “green”. We will start with St. Patrick’s Day and then move right into Spring. I know most of you realize that ‘ART’ is a passion of mine and I have had such a wonderful time sharing it with your children…marble art, sewing, cutting and pasting and of course cooking. For those who feel the three hour afternoon is still too much and your little one still naps, the JUST LUNCH BUNCH, from 12 noon until 1:00p.m. has been just great!
We are still taking registration for DULANEY DAY EXTENDED which will run from Tuesday, May 29th until Friday, June 15th. It is such a nice way to spend the first three weeks of the summertime exploring science and nature. Mrs. Klein and I have already started planning the units and we are very excited. It is especially convenient for those children who have siblings in the county schools as the program runs until the county schools are finished for the summer. If you need a registration form, it can be downloaded from our website. TELL YOUR FRIENDS in your neighborhood!
Don’t forget to go on Sign up Genius and sign up for a PARENT/TEACHER conference on Thursday, March 15th for the 2s and Friday, March 16th for the 3s and 4s. School will be closed the day of the conference.
Our SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR will run from Wednesday, March 14th through Friday, March 16th. March 14th will be GRANDPARENTS DAY at the Fair and I am never sure who enjoys that day most….the children or the grandparents. If you have not already done so, please email or send in your child’s grandparents names and addresses. We will send a postcard as any new address comes in. We will be serving refreshments as well that day and grandparents can stay as long as they would like. In addition, you can go on Sign Up Genius to set up a time for you to work at the FAIR. Thank you, in advance, for offering to help.
Before School drop off has been great! As Mrs. Howe and I are here every morning, you DO NOT have to let us know before that your little one is coming. If your child comes at 8:30a.m. it will be $5.00 for the half hour.
