Monthly Highlights
 
Junior Kindergarten
February 2023

​Dear Parents,
  Well, our Snow Day last week was very disappointing! It was fun listening to the kids leave school on Tuesday telling their parents what they needed to do that evening to make it snow. The kids were excitedly telling their parents they needed to wear their pajamas inside out to bed, they needed to put ice cubes in the toilet, and they had to sleep with a spoon under their pillow. Hopefully, this will work next time, and the kids will get at least one fun snow day in February to build a snowman and go sledding. 

  Our theme this month is Our Multicultural World. We will take imaginary trips around the world to learn about different cultures, animals, plants, food, clothing, music, languages, etc. We will be concluding the unit with a fun International Dress-up Day on Wednesday, February 22. So, begin thinking about those costumes now!
  Other topics this month will include AB, AAB, ABB, and ABC patterns, numbers 14, 15, and 16, the attractive property of magnets, and the exploration of rocks. We will be covering letters P, Q, and R, and be introduced to sight words by, my, me, he, and she.  

  Our memory Bible verse for February is “A friend loves at all times,” Proverbs 17:17. Our Bible stories will include Jesus’ Friends Follow Him, Jesus Tells Us to Share the Good News, and David Is a Brave Boy.  

  Our Valentine’s Day Celebrations will be on Tuesday, February 14th. The children will exchange Valentines cards. Please DO NOT address your child’s Valentines to specific children in the class. Address the cards as follows:

TO: My friend
FROM: Your child’s name

This will make it easier for the children to pass out their Valentine cards.  We do want to encourage the children to sign.  A note was sent home in January with the number of kids in each class. A room parent may reach out to you asking for help with donations for the party. One guest is allowed to attend the party.

  Wednesday, February 8th is Pajama Day! To celebrate the letter P, we will have a pajama party. The children may wear their favorite pajamas to school and will have a popcorn party in the classroom.

  There will be No School on Thursday, March 2, and Friday, March 3, due to Pre-Kindergarten (PK) and Junior Kindergarten (JK) parent/teacher conferences. Your teachers will share more information concerning Parent/Teacher Conferences in mid-February. Please make sure to sign up for a conference time posted outside the classroom door.

  Kid’s Day Out registration for the 2023-2024 school year will be going home the second week of February with Adam Lamb children. Please look for the note in your child’s backpack with information concerning registration. Adam Lamb families will be able to sign up for Kids’ Day Out between February 21-March 2, 2023, it will open to the public on Saturday, March 4th. If you would like more information concerning Kids’ Day Out contact Karen Loechner at karen.loechner@dpc4u.org. 

 Here are the words to a cute Valentine song.  

Valentine (Tune: Love Me Tender)
You’re my rainbow. You’re my star. 
You’re my bright red cookie jar.  
You’re my daisy. You’re my vine. 
You’re my own true Valentine.

​Dear Parents,
  Well, our Snow Day last week was very disappointing! Hopefully, the kids will get at least one fun snow day in February to build a snowman and go sledding. 

  Our theme this month is Friends Around the World. We will discuss the qualities found in someone who is a good friend, as well as take imaginary trips around the world to learn about different cultures, animals, plants, food, clothing, music, languages, etc. We will conclude the unit with a fun International Dress-up Day on Wednesday, February 22. So, begin thinking about those costumes now!
  Other topics this month will include AB and ABC patterns, an introduction to numbers 9 – 11, the attractive property of magnets, and the exploration of rocks. We will be covering letters P, Q, and R.  

  Our memory Bible verse for February is “A friend loves at all times,” Proverbs 17:17. Our Bible stories will include Jesus’ Friends Follow Him, Jesus Tells Us to Share the Good News, and David Is a Brave Boy.  

  We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with a party in the classroom. Please check with your child’s teacher on the date. Please DO NOT address your child’s Valentines to specific children in the class. Address the cards as follows:

TO: My friend
FROM: Your child’s name

This will make it easier for the children to pass out their Valentine cards.  We do want to encourage the children to sign their own name on their cards. This is great practice for them. Gently remind them to use lower case letters. Only the first letter in their name should be capitalized. You may want to do just a few cards at a time to make the task easier for your little one. 

Wednesday, February 8, is Pajama Day! To celebrate the letter P, we will have a pajama party. The children may wear their favorite pajamas to school.

  There will be No School on Thursday, March 2, and Friday, March 3, due to Pre-Kindergarten (PK) and Junior Kindergarten (JK) parent/teacher conferences.

First Year Preschool

Dear Parents,
  Well, our Snow Day last week was very disappointing! It was fun listening to the kids leave school on Tuesday telling their parents what they needed to do that evening to make it snow. The kids were excitedly telling their parents they needed to wear their pajamas inside out to bed, they needed to put ice cubes in the toilet, and they had to sleep with a spoon under their pillow. Hopefully, this will work next time, and the kids will get at least one fun snow day in February to build a snowman and go sledding. 

  Our theme for this month is Friendship and Community. We will discuss the qualities found in a good friend and learn about community helpers. Community helpers are people who have jobs that serve others, and are people who we can trust… doctors, police officers, fire fighters, etc. We will conclude this unit with a community helper dress-up day on Thursday, February 23. Start planning your costume now. Your child’s teacher can give you some great suggestions too. Other topics this month will include a review of meaningful counting from 0-5, an introduction to numbers 3-5, and light, shadows, and reflection.  
   
  Our memory Bible verse for February is A friend loves at all times, Proverbs 17:17. Our Bible stories will include Finding a Friend, Jesus’ Friends Follow Him, and Jesus Grows Up to Do His Father’s Work.

  Our Valentine’s Day celebrations will be held on Tuesday, February 14th. The children will exchange Valentine cards. Please DO NOT address your child’s Valentines to a specific individual in the class. 

Address the cards as follows:
TO: My friend
FROM: Your child’s name

  This will make it easier for the children to pass out their Valentine cards. A note was sent home in January with the number of kids in each class. Your room parent may reach out to you asking for help with donations for the party. One guest will be allowed to attend the classroom party. 

  There will be NO SCHOOL on Thursday, March 2. Our teachers will be conducting Junior Kindergarten (JK) and Prekindergarten (PK) parent/teacher conferences.
