March News 2017 – Miss Anne & Mr. Joe’s Class

Dear Parents,

The March winds are here but hopefully the snow and frigid temperatures are behind us. Spring is just around the corner and we are really looking forward to our outdoor times on a more regular basis.

To start the month off, we will be celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday by reading many of his fun filled books. Please send in your child’s favorite Dr. Seuss book so we can read it to the class. Make sure your child’s name is in the book so we don’t mix them up if we have duplicates. Thank You! I’m sure you will hear a lot of rhyming in your house in the weeks to come. Mr. Michael will be visiting our class to read his favorite Dr. Seuss book. Thank you, Mr. Michael; we are looking forward to your visit.

Some of the other topics for the month of March are St. Patrick’s Day and signs of spring. We will also be working on a special booklet which has information in it that the children are memorizing in case they ever need to dial 911. It will also be useful to be prepared for their Kindergarten screening.  When the booklet comes home please review the information in it each night with your child.

We will have St. Patrick’s Day Parties on Thursday, March 16 and Friday, March 17th.  Please have your child wear green on those days. If you would like to send in a treat for our parties, that would be great. Please make sure anything you send in fits the guidelines for our “Peanut Free” school. We will be on the hunt for wild and crazy leprechauns all that week.  Every year they come and play tricks on us causing chaos throughout our school. It is always a lot of fun and probably the event they remember the most from their Red Robin experience as they journey into elementary school.

I would like to thank all the parents for the hard work and effort they put into helping their children make “Valentines for Veterans” from their families. It was a tremendous outpouring of support and love. Thank you from my son, my daughter-in-law and all the Veterans who felt your warmth and concern.

I would also like to extend a special thanks to Miss Sheryl for making all the delicious pancakes on Pajama Day for our class. They were DELICIOUS.

Our 100th Day of school was filled with the voices of your children counting their collections of 100 things with their classmates. They have come a long way and are definitely 100 days smarter! They are a wonderful class!

 

Affectionately,

Miss Anne
