Kit Foxes: Ms. Daisy & Miss Naiya
First of all, thank you for the thoughtful and generous Christmas gifts we received! They were very much appreciated.We would like to welcome our new assistant Megan Shaffer, who has been with our school off and on for several years now. We are so happy to have her join our class.
Already into the second month of the year and things are moving at a wonderful pace. Academically our children continue to show steady progress in language and math, with work ranging from pre-language
exercises and simple counting to basic reading and addition. In geography we will study the peninsula
and gulf, the globe, the western hemisphere, continents and different animals in those continents.
We will also study objects that sink and float. In zoology we will be studying frogs and turtles.
Please help support us by encouraging you child to do as much as possible on her/his own at home and
follow through with tasks. We will be going to the Bee Hive bookstore for Story-Time on February 12 and 26. Show and Tell will be on March 26 and April 30. Spring Break is March 17 through 21. School will be closed March 27 and 28 so that the preschool teachers can attend a Montessori Conference.
We will have a Valentine’s Day party on Thursday, February 13. We have 21 children in our class. If you choose to participate in exchanging Valentine cards, please make sure your child brings one for everyone. If your child cannot read and not able to pass out addressed cards to each classmate, please make them all generic and only have your child sign the cards. If however your child can read his or her friends names, please have them address each card as well as sign it so they can distribute them on their own.
Make sure you send plenty of food for the day with your child. Please pack fruit and another healthy snack for morning snack. Cut and peel all fruit. Send reusable utensils and cloth napkins.
Please use the drive-through drop off between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and try not to be late.
Many thanks from Ms. Daisy, Ms. Naiya and Ms. Megan!
Your child will be inviting you to a Parents Day. Your child will be your teacher and you
will be the student. We ask that no siblings attend this event as it is intended to be a
special day for your child to show off their skills and knowledge to you. There will be
two Parent Days: one on February 22, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Adeline, Alexander,
Asa, Blaise, Catalina, Chase, Taylor, Wyatt, Julia, Zach and Noah) and the second on
March 8, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Addison, Cash, Chloe, Fynn, Damian, Jacob,
Levi, Liam, Maya and Will). Hope to see you on Parents Day!
