Please slow down when entering and exiting the parking lot.  We have several small children getting in and out of cars.

 

Please walk your child to their classroom and make sure that the staff know that they have arrived.  It is very important that our staff greet your child and help make that transition from home to school more comfortable.

Lavender Room News:

month of July we are excited to welcome three new friends to the Lavender room; Olivine, Aria, and Gabrielle!   We are also going to be saying goodbye to Penelope as she is making her way into the Purple room!  We are sad to see her leaving our room, but so excited to watch her grow and enjoy her new classroom!

            This month we will be creating art projects inspired by summer. We will also be creating Fourth of July crafts to decorate our room.  Throughout this month we will be reading books focused on the outdoors and animals.  As long as the weather permits we will be going outside as much as possible to enjoy the summer weather!

            As always we are taking all precautions that we can to keep everyone safe and healthy, if you have any questions or concerns feel free to let us know! Thank you!

Purple Room News:

It’s finally summertime! Last month we spent a lot of time outdoors on our playground where the kids had fun crawling in the grass, as well as many buggie rides which always gets the kids excited.

In the month of July, we will again be taking advantage of the nice weather with the goal of going outside at least once a day. Many of the kids in the class are beginning to stand and walk, so our activities in the classroom will be centered around gaining balance and mobility. We will also be doing a number of sensory activities like playing with water and finger painting.

We also ask that you make sure that the children’s extra clothing in their cubbies are weather appropriate and in their correct size.

Thank you all for another great month! If you ever have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Miss. Sydney and the Purple Room Team

Blue Room News:

 

Last month in The Blue Room, we did a unit on summer. We made summer art projects, played outside as much as we could, and much more. We also made Father’s Day cards for our dads. It was overall a very fun and successful month!

This month, we will celebrate The Fourth Of July. We will do art projects related to it, read some books about it, play with American flags, and more. It looks to be a fun and exciting month!

As always, if you have any questions, let us know.

Stay safe and healthy!

Thanks!

Green Room News:

 

It’s hard to believe that June is already over!  The Green Room friends spent the month finishing our alphabet unit and welcoming Summer.  Some of their favorite projects included feeling “wind” from a fan, splashing in water, catching ants, going on a picnic and painting with spray bottles.

This month’s theme is “Summer Destinations,” with topics such as camping, concerts, and the beach to guide our fun.  Of course, we will also be celebrating Independence Day!  We look forward to a month of exciting learning opportunities.

While sandals may be synonymous with summer time, they are unfortunately not very safe for the playground.  If your child does not wear socks and tennis shoes to school, please send some along for your child to wear outside.  Thank you.

Ms. Rosemary and the Green Room Team.
