January 2011

Happy New Year!!!
We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. A big thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the lovely gifts we received.
As we all know children enjoy a regular routine. We appreciate January because it’s typically a quiet month as students readjust getting back into a school routine.
In January we’ll learn about:
·         Asia
·         Landforms
·         Hibernating Animals
·         Amphibians
Winter Outer Wear
Winter weather is here.   We do go out everyday unless the weather is too wet or too cold. By too cold we mean when the temperature, including the chill factor, goes below 20 degrees. Therefore, children need to be dressed appropriately. Remember that handling hats, gloves, mittens, boots, coats, and scarves is part of your child’s Practical Life training at the Primary level. We will help your child learn to handle the extra clothing. If the weather is wet or there is snow on the ground, all children need to wear boots to school. It is not good for children’s feet to wear boots all day and our classroom floors don’t need the mess, so all children need a pair of shoes or slippers to wear in the classroom.  (Kindergarten and Full Day Fours need a pair of athletic shoes for P.E.  Slippers are too slippery on the gym floor.)   You may choose to have your child keep their shoes or slippers in their cubby at school or they can carry them back and forth in their bag
Dates to Remember:

Mon, Jan 17th- MLK day- No school
