Welcome to Room A Home of the A1 Owls and the A3 Froggies!
As we begin our first year of school, we will have fun meeting new friends and exploring all the fun things our classroom has to offer. Orientation for A3 is on Thursday, September 10. Orientation for A1 is on Friday, September 11. We will meet our class pet, a goldfish named Dorothy! This year we will sing songs, create art, play on the playground and eat snack together. We will learn to share, take turns, use our words and be part of a group - important skills to use all of our lives.
We will learn much about ourselves and others as we grow. Our school will also study the Philippines, Guatemala and South Korea.
During September, we will celebrate Peace Day. We will also have a Back to School Picnic on September 18 at 5:30 pm. The Owls and Froggies will be busy making their own sit-upons and reading books about school. Later in the month, we will learn about how we are all different and unique. We will make a special project, a surprise! Come see on Back to School Night-for A1 parents on Monday, September 21, and for A3 parents on Thursday, September 24-both at 7pm. Children will not come to school for these evenings. Please plan to also attend the Hayride on Sunday, September 27.
In October, we will start our study of Colors, beginning with Orange and Black, of course! We will learn about Bats and Spiders, and have a fun visit from the Fire Department, complete with trucks that we can explore. The Harvest Fair is on Saturday, October 3. Our Halloween Parties and Parades are planned for October 29 (A3) and October 30 (A1) at 9:15 am.
In November we will celebrate Yellow Day and Brown Day with fun colored food, collages and games. We will focus on thankfulness and the good things in our lives for which we are grateful. We will share a fruit salad Friendship Feast with all of our preschool friends and talk about the importance of sharing. Our left over fruit will help feed people in need.
Additionally, each week during the school year, the Owls and Froggies will enjoy music class with Tr. Chris.
We are so excited for all the fun in the year ahead!
