Monthly Highlights
 
​February 2020

​JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN


Dear Parents,
  It’s been an interesting winter thus far. We have had a variety of weather conditions. As “they” say, welcome to Missouri. Let’s hope that Phil doesn’t see his shadow on Groundhog’s Day, and that he predicts an early spring.  

  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. An itinerary of your child’s class trip around the world will be posted on the parent board. If you would like to share information, coins, clothing, photos, etc. on any of the places the children will be touring, please let your child’s teacher know. We will be concluding the unit with a fun International Dress-up Day on Wednesday, February 26. 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 parties will be on Wednesday, February 12, during the last hour of the class period. The children will be exchanging Valentines during the party. 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 to 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.  
  Our room parents are working hard to make our last classroom party of the year fun and enjoyable for everyone. Please check the parent board for sign-up sheets. Your donations and support are greatly appreciated!

  Thursday, February 13 is Pajama Day for Mrs. O’Brien’s class and Friday, February 14, is Pajama Day for Mrs. Durbin’s class. To celebrate the letter P we will have a pajama party on those dates. The children may wear their favorite pajamas to school. Please no slippers for Mrs. Durbin’s class since it will be their Fun and Fitness Day too.

  There will be No School on Thursday, March 5, and Friday, March 6, due to Pre-kindergarten (PK) and Junior Kindergarten (JK) parent/teacher conferences. Conference sign-up sheets will be posted on the parent board. Please be sure to sign up for a conference time. If you are unable to make any of the scheduled times, please let your child’s teacher know. She can try to schedule a more convenient time to meet with you.

  Kid’s Day Out registration for the 2020 - 2021 school year will be held on Saturday, February 29. There is a $75 nonrefundable registration fee due the day of registration. If you are interested in enrolling your child in the KDO program, please call Karen at 636-561-4347 for more information.


  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.

​FIRST YEAR PRESCHOOL

​Dear Parents,
  It’s been an interesting winter so far. We have had a variety of weather conditions. As “they” say, welcome to Missouri! Let’s hope that Phil doesn’t see his shadow on Groundhog’s Day, and that he predicts an early spring.  

  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. If you are a community helper and would be interested in talking to the children about your job, please let us know. We will conclude this unit with a community helper dress-up day on Thursday, February 27. Start planning your costume now. 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 parties will be held on Thursday, February 13, during the last hour of the class period. The children will be exchanging Valentine cards at the party. 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. Please check with your child’s teacher as to how many children are in the class.  
  Our room parents are working hard to make our last party of the year a FUN event for everyone! Please check the parent board for sign-up sheets. Your donations and support are greatly appreciated! 

  There will be NO SCHOOL on Thursday, March 5. Our teachers will be conducting Junior Kindergarten (JK) and Prekindergarten (PK) parent/teacher conferences. There are no scheduled conferences for the First Year Preschool (FYP) children. However, we will be sending home information regarding your child’s progress at the end of April. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s development, please contact your child’s teacher.  

  Kid’s Day Out registration for the 2020- 2021 school year will be held on Saturday, February 29. There is a $75 nonrefundable registration fee due the day of registration.
